Come Thristy

Bought water today for upcoming road trip to a women’s conference.

Thought about how often it feels like we go from waist deep in the Word, to the feeling of barefooted, walking through a dry creek bed. Anyone?

Went looking for “thirst” in Hebrew.

#6770, tsame’. The letter pictures speak this to me. (Gosh, I love Hebrew)

On my knees, hands lifted in prayer and praise, “thirsty” for the First love of my life, Jesus.

Tsadik, Mem, Alef. (Reading the letters pictured right to left)

I wonder if the Lord allows us to get a bit “dry” to prepare our empty vessel for an overflowing drink of water.

Can’t wait Lord, fill me up!!

“Ho! Everyone who thirst,
Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat.
Yes, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.”
Isaiah 55:1 NKJV

Thirsty – tsame’ – Tsadik, Mem, Alef

In Confidence shall be your strength

Pre-dawn

I woke this morning thinking about Jesus’ week. Recalling, Tuesday if my memory is right, was the day Scripture was “quiet” about Jesus’ activities. No mention at all.

I wondered if Jesus, knowing all that was coming in the next few days, chose to stay in Bethany with His friends and disciples on last “quiet” day. A place of rest.

“In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.” Isaiah 30:15 NKJV

The ESV uses the word “trust” in place of “confidence.

The Hebrew word is #982

Batech – visualize the letters in order.

Bet – Heart

Bet - 2nd letter in the Hebrew alphabet Picture of a "tent or house" Within, heart, begin to, build, family.

Picture of a “tent or house”
Within, heart, begin to,

Tet – Snake or the coiling or twisting and surrounding

Word picture: Snake Meaning: Twisting, Surrounding, Coiling

Meaning: Twisting, Surrounding, Coiling

Chet – Fence – protection, inner place, and looking straight at the letter – the full-face of Jesus.

Chet - 8th Hebrew letter. Word Picture - Fence Meaning: - inner-room, protection, private, to separate, full-face
Chet – 8th Hebrew letter.

private, to separate, full-face

“In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”

What weakens,

Blows away,

Loosen,

Strangles,

Steals,

Destroys,

And

Kills our “confidence” and strength?

Looking at the letters,

The “twisting”

Word picture: Snake Meaning: Twisting, Surrounding, Coiling
Word picture: Snake
Meaning: Twisting, Surrounding, Coiling

the “snake” the “choking” place between our HEART

Bet - 2nd letter in the Hebrew alphabet Picture of a "tent or house" Within, heart, begin to, build, family.
Bet – 2nd letter in the Hebrew alphabet

and the FULL FACE, Inner protection of Jesus.

Chet - 8th Hebrew letter. Word Picture - Fence Meaning: - inner-room, protection, private, to separate, full-face
Chet – 8th Hebrew letter.
Word Picture – Fence
Meaning: – inner-room, protection,
private, to separate, full-face

Confidence – the place between our heart and Jesus.

“In quietness and confidence/trust shall be your strength.” Isaiah 30:15


 

So I think as Jesus spent the day “quiet”, I’m going to “guard my heart” in His inner protection and strength, trusting in the One Who went all the way to the Cross for me.

blessings today my friends and neighbors.

Returning to Daniel to Remember – Zayin

A study illuminating Jesus in Daniel, Chapter 10.


“And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me did not see the vision, but a great trembling fell upon them, and they fled to hide themselves.” Daniel 10:7

Daniel was alone – “cut off” by himself.

Zayin - Seventh Hebrew letter. Word Picture: Weapon - Sword Meaning: To end, bring to completion, to cut, to cut off. Can you visualize holding it in your hand as a weapon?
Zayin – Seventh Hebrew letter.
Word Picture: Weapon – Sword
Meaning: To end, bring to completion, to cut, to cut off.
Can you visualize holding it in your hand as a weapon?

Daniel heard the sound of Jesus’ voice which is also found in Revelation 19:15 – “mouth like a sword” – Jesus is coming to “bring completion”.

Weapon used by the Romans.
Weapon used by the Romans.

Of Daniel – “His attendants saw not the vision; …There is a divine revelation vouchsafed to all, from converse with which none are excluded who do not excluded themselves.” – quote by Matthew Henry

Man cuts himself off from Christ and His revelations.


A revelation found in the Hebrew word “remember”.

“The Hebrew word for remember is zakar. The Hebrew letters (Zayin, Kaf, Reysh for remember) can visually illustrate, to remember is the weapon in the palm of the hand of the person. Our highest weapon in spiritual warfare is to remember.

The next time the evil one shows you lack, remember the Lord is your Shepherd, and you “shall not want”; when sickness plagues the day, remember, “with His stripes we are healed” and when the world asks, “Where is your God?” remember Jesus and His “steadfast love.”

The first time Jesus used the word remember in the New Testament, He said, “Remember the five loaves of bread…” there is the number five again; Grace! Let us enjoy this Travel Truth spending the day remembering, “Grace and Truth came through Jesus Christ!” John 1:16”


Scriptures: Psalm 23:1; Isaiah 53:5; Psalm 42:3; Matthew 16:9

At the door of Dalet

What was “the word of the LORD” that “came to Abram.”? Genesis 15:1

“Fear not Abram, I AM your Shield, your exceedingly great reward.” Genesis 15:2

  • Spending time in the “word” will significantly change your direction and course. Opening up doors of hope to all the good plans God has for your life. –

Now, there is a “word” I can receive “within my heart” at the door of Dalet!

Resting in Jesus, my “Shield and exceedingly great reward!” Genesis 15:2

Dalet  –  ד – door, direction and path enlightened in the word “Dabar”
