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.
|A||The ‘Aleph’ is the picture of an ox head and illustrates the strength of an animal. It can mean strong, power, or leader.|
|d||The ‘Dalet’ represents a tent flap or door, and typically means back and forth movement as in going in and out of a door, or going on a journey and returning, or following a path.|
|n||The ‘Nun’ represents a seed or sprout and gives us the meaning of continuing to a new generation. It can have the meaning of life, continuing, perpetuating, sustaining, offspring, or heir.|
|y||The ‘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.|
The strong one leads and sustains me by His hand. Even more literally, it means “The strong One leads our journey and by His hand life is preserved.”
