Leviticus 23:42-43 says, “You are to live in Sukkot for seven days. Every citizen of Israel is to live in the sukkah so that generation after generation will know that I made the people of Israel live in sukkot when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am Adonai your G-d.” This way the people of Israel learned to trust in Adonai, that He really takes care of them and provides for what they need.
For me also it is sometimes very difficult to trust in Adonai completely, to be patient and to wait for Him. When I was a child at the age of 10 I was scared that something bad happened to me if I did not touch my pillow several times before I went to sleep. Every night it was the same ritual. Before I went to sleep I “had to” touch my pillow several times. Then one day I decided I did not want to go on with this anymore.
I had heard and read in the Bible that if you pray to Yeshua He will answer you and He will help you. So I prayed to Yeshua. The first evening after I prayed there was no difference and I went through the same ritual as always. The second evening I prayed again and after I finished my prayer I immediately fell asleep without doing my ritual. When I woke up the next morning I remembered that I had not touched my pillow before sleeping and nothing bad had happened.
Yeshua really answered my prayer and had helped me! I was not afraid anymore. Yeshua had taken away my fear; and from that moment on I never had to touch my pillow again before going to sleep. Baruch HaShem! I like to celebrate Sukkot because I trust in the God of Israel, He who leads His people out of Egypt and takes care of His children. He also leads us out of our problems and really takes care of us. Will you celebrate Sukkot this year?
