December 24 began the tenth Biblical month: Tevet.
The number ten is associated with order, tithe and testimony. Likewise, this month is all about getting things in order, setting our priorities straight, growing up and maturing in the Lord.
Our good Father matures us through both His word and through His love. Often we resist growing up, but Hebrews 12:11 says, “For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”
Maturing in God is a good thing as it equips us for good works. In fact, the word “Tevet” comes from the root word “good.” This root is the same word God used in Genesis when he saw his creation and said it was “good.”
In this time, the Lord wants to separate the light from the darkness in our lives so that we can see clearly. He uses His word as the lamp unto our feet that guides us into maturity.
