Days of Awe


The Days of Awe, between the Jewish New Year and the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), are a time to draw nearer to the Lord. We can allow the Holy Spirit to search our hearts to find anything that separates us from God, any place in our lives not fully surrendered, in order to have true fellowship with the Lord. It is a time for us to have a listening heart, for if we listen to His voice we will repent and gain victory in our own lives, in the life of the nation and in the world.


My son, give attention to my words, incline your ear to my sayings; Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you (Prov 4:20-24).


From these verses we read that listening is more than just hearing. We need to be attentive to God. ‘To incline our ears’ means to bend and humble ourselves (v 20). We need to focus on the Lord and what He is saying, and keep and guard His words in our hearts (v 21). This is most important, as Psalm 119:11 confirms, because as His words become deeply rooted in our hearts, the Holy Spirit will make his nest there, and we will not fall into sin.


If we follow the advice of Proverbs 4 – to be attentive and listen, humble ourselves and hide His word in our hearts - we will be ready for the Day of Atonement. Our wonderful High Priest, Yeshua, has already done everything for us and provides free access to the place of God’s mercies and His dwelling presence (Heb 4:14-16).


Michael Yaron was born near Tel Aviv as the first-born son of Polish Holocaust survivors. Sadly, he lost both his parents before the age of 18. After his army service, he felt haunted with emotional pain and left Israel to study medicine in Europe. In the country of his sworn enemies, Yeshua met him through a young German carpenter who showed him God’s love. God reconciled him with Himself and with the German people. Some years later God directed him to return to his homeland, Israel. Serving as a co-pastor and elder he learned to pastor people. In 2007, together with his wife, he started a congregation in Rishon Letzion.
