Man needs God. Even when mankind is oblivious to that need, the evidence is overwhelmingly clear that there is a need for guidance and help beyond the mortal. Here the Ancient Hebrew pictographs bring into focus the title of the One who can fill that need.

The strong one leads and sustains me by His hand.

AThe ‘Aleph’ is the picture of an ox head and illustrates the strength of an animal. It can mean strong, power, or leader.
dThe ‘Dalet’ represents a tent flap or door. It can also mean back and forth movement as in going in and out of a door.
nThe ‘Nun’ represents a seed or sprout and gives us the meaning of continuing to a new generation. It can have the meaning of continuing, perpetuating, sustaining, offspring, or heir.
yThe ‘Yud’ in pictograph form represents an arm and a hand. The picture can mean work, throw, worship or it can simply mean arm or hand.
