There is a deep impartation we can receive from the experience of Sukkot that is recorded in the Book of Nehemiah. All the people were gathered to Ezra the scribe that they might gain insight into the words of the law. They discovered that the Lord had commanded through Moses that they should live in booths during the feast. So, they did just that. God met them in response to their obedience, and that inspired them to seek the Lord in a new way. In their repentance, they confessed the repeated sins of their fathers and rehearsed God’s faithfulness to always forgive when they turned to Him.
During this Sukkot, we are also finding a new relationship with the Lord and His Word. Talk to the Lord about your life and history. When we simply confess and repent to Him, He will bring us back to His Word, pick us up, and put us back on track. Be open, honest, and unflinching, trusting in His love, compassion, and faithfulness to fulfill His Word for His namesake.
This message titled “God’s Compassion To Fulfill His Word Over You“ came during our Sukkot celebration at the Rayen Resort in North Hills, California. It will be available to hear at Living Word Publications.
