We are now celebrating the Hebraic:
MONTH OF SHEVAT
TRIBE OF ASHER
Shevat: (30 days Jan / Feb)
Alphabet: TZADIK - “the righteous one”
Tribe: Asher - pleasure, happiness, delicious, fateness; beware of the delicacies of the king
Characteristics: Righteousness becomes your foundation.
A time to develop a plan for sustaining generations.
Look for those who are bringing pitchers of water to you.
A month to shout “my blessings are on their way”
What you are tasting and meditating on produces
the life and nourishment for your future
Shevat is linked with the tribe of Asher which pictures pleasure, happiness, delicious and fatness. During this month you should also beware of the delicacies of the king - the book of Daniel is always a good book to read during this month. This is a good month to partake of food. When you complete your fast, God will show you how to eat in a different way. If you go through a fasting process in January, you will reprogram your body to eat in February. What you taste and eat produces the life or nourishment for your future - that is why we need to be sure to eat the Word, so our bodies are healed and properly aligned. Then we will be able to digest whatever God gives us in the following months.
This month is a time to develop a plan to sustain the generations. It is a good time to regroup with the younger generations and those connected with you. Look at your field and see what is planted there. Who is planted in your field? Are the trees in your field ready to bear fruit? Shevat is actually called the month of the new year of trees, so the best question to ask yourself this month is “How does your olive tree blossom?” Read and meditate on Psalm 1 this month
The Hebrew letter for this month is TZADIK which symbolizes “the righteous one.” This month righteousness must become your foundation - Jehovah Tzidkenu is one expression of this month. It is the month where the river touches your roots, and your roots awaken to the water of life. Think of Rebekah and the woman at the well. Who is bringing water to you? Carefully consider how you make decisions this month, if you are not being watered. You may also want to position yourself to be watered in a new way. Shevat is also the month to shout “My blessings are on their way!” That is the key for this month - there is a shout within you that says you see you wagons of supply coming and the water pots to quench your thirst.
