Eating up your today, and worrying about tomorrow.
Your blessings are here, and in this hour.
Embrace this “season” of new,
For I have equipped you.
Not by your will or strength, but by
My Love and Power!”
After much Word and prayer, my Jesus has led me here. Embracing a new “season” where in the “natural” makes no sense or reason. But this I know is sure, listening to His Voice, I am embracing a new open door.
Thank you WordPress friend for always welcoming back my pen.
I pray you each are well;
I’ve missed our
“Show and tell!”
“Now therefore, if ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me…” Exodus 19:5 (KJV)
Peculiar – Hebrew #5459 Sigullah (seg-ool-law)
Peculiar – treasured, unique, special.
Word pictures of the word Peculiar encourages me to…
Samech – To rest, lean upon;
Gimel – The Kindness, the Help, of
Lamed – The Shepherd of
Hey – Grace
“…then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me.” Exodus 19:5 (KJV)
To rest, lean upon; The Kindness, the Help, of The Shepherd of – Grace
“Issachar is a strong donkey, crouching between the sheepfolds.” Genesis 49:14
Yesterday, I went looking for the first mention of the word “strong”.
It actually means, “skeleton of the body, and bones.”
I thought this strange.
This morning, the verse came to mind again, only the word “crouching”.
In the Hebrew the word is actually #7257 – “lying”.
Issachar was Leah’s 5th son. Five reflects – Favor and Grace!
“And God listened to Leah, and she conceived and bore Jacob a fifth son…Issachar.” Genesis 30:17
Of the tribe of Issachar it is said they are
“Mighty men of valor” and “Ready for war”. 1 Chronicles 7:1-5
Of all the tribes, Issachar…
“of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…” 1 Chronicles 12:32
Back to “crouching.” The word comes from the root Hebrew word #7257 “lying”
“Rabats” or Reysh, Bet, Tsadak.
As I thought on the word picture,
Man’s (Reysh) dwelling (Bet – our heart and body) in praise and prayer (Tsadik) – between two sheepfolds. (Tsadik is one of my favorites because it looks like the one of kneeling or standing in praise)
Issachar is crouched down in a position of praise and prayer between two sheepfolds (our family and the world).
And of “strong” – Issachar knows
To his bone,
down to his core,
to the marrow of his “skeleton”
only through Praise and Prayer, through the Favor and Grace of Jesus Christ,
Protection for our family,
Discernment and understand for the times we live in.
And knowing, in this position of prayer and praise,
When troubles come upon us, we know…
What we “ought to do”!! Wisdom and Discernment
“Issachar is a strong donkey, crouching between two sheepfolds.”
Even when the whole world thinks we are a “donkey”; we are Mighty men of valor and ready for war in the position of praise and prayer!!
Mighty men and women of God,
Also, not at the end of a word Tsadik looks like this:
I woke up thinking about the green color of our swimming pool.
My husband, armed with sanitizing items for war,
is waging a fierce battle.
to see the “blue!”
“Good morning LORD!
Waking to thoughts of You.
Your not in the green,
Your in the blue!
Clear and Sparkling.
Bright as Light.
Into understanding sight.
Colors given one by one.
Gifts of rainbow from
Glorify Your Name in waves,
and clouds parade!”
I wondered, “What is the Hebrew definition for ‘blue’?”
An obscure idea of a “peeling off by concussion of sound”; a scale or shell (example a mussel) stemming from the unused root word “Shacal” which is the “roar of a lion”.
Blue – the roar of a lion.
The Lion of Judah
Could it be,
the woman with the “issue of blood,” seeing Jesus passing by,
heard the “roar of the blue” from the hem of His garment?
“The LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the people…and tell them to make tassels on the corners of their garments…and to put a cord of blue on the tassel of each corner.” Numbers 15:37-38 (ESV)
On hearing, the “scales” fell from her eyes to see,
And reaching out, she touched her Healing.
“For she said to herself, ‘If I only touch His garment, I shall be made well. But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter, your faith has made you well.” Matthew 9:21-22
Hidden treasure in the word pictures of “Shacal” – #7826 Strong’s
Sheen – smile
Chet – full face
Lamed – Shepherd
“…Jesus turned around and saw her…”
The smile of the full face of the Shepherd
He said, “…daughter…”
I’m seeing her smile too,
In the Roar of the Blue!
The “blue” was from the cerulean mussel, the rare color was used to dye the tassels. This prayer shawl is an example of what the “woman” would have been reaching to touch on Jesus’s hem.
I wept like a baby when I purchased this in a shop on the Sea of Galilee.
May you be blessed today with healing and well-being under the blue!
“…Israel called its name manna…and the taste of it was like wafer made with honey.” Exodus 16:31
“Taste and See
In the fatness
Of Your Word.
Rich and Full,
More than a
Hundred calories worth!”
Taste – Hebrew word – Ta’am #2938 – perceive – good discernment.
Ta’am or the Hebrew letters – Tet, Ayin, Mem
Taste and See in the Word Pictures….
ט Tet – snake – encircle, wrap, twisting.
ע Ayin – eye – to see, to know.
ם Mem – water – movement, Holy Spirit
Taste and See…
-Wrapping your eye around the movement of the Holy Spirit!-
And NOT the snake…
Do not look at the twisting chaos of his wake!! –
The snake is all around us…but I want to Wrap my eye around the movement of the Holy SpiritWho is with us wherever we go!!”
Thank You Jesus for your finished work of the Cross!

“Bless my hand as I

When I opened the Jesus CallingDevotional book after this time with the Lord, I about fell out!!
May youTaste and See the Holy Spirit’s movement in all the good plans He has for each of you, in Jesus Holy Name!! Amen!!
“And behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees.” Daniel 10: Verse 10
This was the verse that opened my eyes to see the Hebrew letters.
“a hand touched me…”
Yood – Is the smallest of the Hebrew letters but very significant.
It can represent:
“the hand of God”
“the work of God”
“the favor of God by His hand”
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.” Matthew Chapter 10:29
Matthew Chapter 10 – Ten
Nothing is insignificant to the Father. So much so, Jesus also said,
“For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.” Matthew 5:18
He was speaking about the letter Yood.
It’s numerical value is 10. The number10 represents order:
The Ten Commandments
The 10 generations of Adam to Noah.
God delivered Israel by the 10 plagues.
A minyan (a group of 10 men) is required for prayer in the synagogue.
“And behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees.”
Daniel had the “hand of God”lift him up.
God gave Daniel favor – Daniel 1:9
Yood is the right hand – or the hand of favor, by lifting Daniel up.
God was “working” on Daniel’s behalf.
“Strength and comfort commonly come by degrees to those that have been long cast down and disquieted; they are first helped up a little, and then more. After two days he will review us, and then the third day he will raise us up. And we must not despise the day of small things, but be thankful for the beginning of mercy.” quote by Matthew Henry
God does not,
despise our small frames,
or trembling knees.
He extends His hand of
love and favor.
Picking us up from despair;
and with His mighty
right hand works on our behalf!
And like the “Feature photo” of a tambourine depicting Miriam, the sister of Aaron, who took a tambourine in her hand, went out (with all the women) singing and dancing after the LORD, Who (with a Mighty hand) brought back the waters of the Sea.
Delivering the people from the ten plagues and bondage. Exodus 15:19
So how the heck does it represent the “full-face”?
If the Nineteenth letter – Koof
Is the “back of the head” of a man or person”
The Twentieth letter is the “side” view of a man or a person
Then in makes sense, “Chet” is the front view of a person.
And the person I am looking to find in Scripture is Jesus!
“…for she said to herself, “If I only touch His garment, I will be made well.”
Jesus turned, and seeing her He said,
“Take heart, daughter, your faith has made you well.” Matthew 9:21-22
Jesus turned and she saw His full-face.
Jumping into the 8th verse in Daniel…what did Daniel see?
Daniel retelling his story in Chapter 10…“So I was left alone and saw this great vision, and no strength was left in me. My radiant appearance was fearfully changed, and I retained no strength. Daniel Chapter 10: verse 8
Daniel saw the face of Jesus – private vision, full face of Jesus.
Protection – Eight people were saved aboard Noah’s Ark.
Covenant – Jesus was taken up to the Temple for dedication on the eighth day.
Kingship – David, a man after God’s own heart was the Eighth son of Jesse.
Joyous – the Feast of Booths is celebrated for Eight days.
Ministry – Aaron, the high priest was called by Moses on the Eighth day of preparation.
I pray as we continue through Daniel in Chapter 10,
your eyes would be opened to see the
beauty of Jesus in Old Testament prophecy of Daniel.
