Equipping Your Reimagine Journey

יYod

 

Your hands made me and fashioned me;

Give me understanding, so I can learn your commandments.

Those who fear you rejoice at the sight of me,

Because I put my hope in your word.

I know, ADONAI, that your judgments are righteous,

That even when you humble me you are faithful.

Let your grace comfort me,

In keeping with your promise to your servant.

Show me pity, and I will live,

For your Torah is my delight.

Let the proud be ashamed, because they wrong me with lies;

As for me, I will meditate on your precepts.

Let those who fear you turn to me,

Along with those who know your instruction.

Let my heart be pure in your laws,

So that I won’t be put to shame.

-          Psalm 119:73-80

 

 

     Every stanza of  Psalm 119 represents a Hebrew alphabet starting from Aleph to Tav.  Each alphabet has a meaning and also an assigned number.  The shape of the letter also tells us a story of the meaning.  In this case, the tenth stanza, Yod, has the assigned number 10 which is a number of ADONAI.  The ancient Hebrew pictograph looks like a hand in action and means that ADONAI is our creator and that by His own loving hand He formed us uniquely and wonderfully while in our mother’s womb.  He shaped us into a beautiful human being and imbued in us an explosive potential that only He knows how to limit.          

 

      The Psalmist declares that he belongs to ADONAI and no one else; and affirms Yah’s

authorship upon his life.  Indeed, every facet of his being is being shaped and fashioned

by the heavenly Father.  From the moment he was conceived until the day he dies, his

soul is being transformed into the image of YHWH.

 

      He confesses that only by the Word is his life transformed through a continuous

process of learning and practical application.  All those who believe in YHWH will rejoice

to see this transformation as it attests to the sanctifying power of the Torah.  As every

letter of the Word created us, it will also sustain us and prosper us as it leads us to the

arms of YHWH.

 

      Life on earth is a process of humbling through the various challenges that come our

way but we can be certain that Yah’s promises are faithful and His grace will always

lead us to triumph and comfort us.

 

      A dear friend was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer that has metastasized and

had invaded the upper portion of her spine. The tumors were removed and she had to

wear a heavy steel brace for at least three months.  With all that discomfort, she is also

undergoing chemotherapy along with other treatments.  My wife and I have been

ministering to her and her family with the Word; but we can only do as much as we could

to comfort her and her family for only YHWH can really comfort her as only He knows. 

However, we believe that Yah sent His Word to heal our friend and that is primarily why

we continue to persevere in prayer and in the Word by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT.

 

      The good news is, our friend continues to believe and persevere in trusting YHWH

for she knows she must live by her faith.  As ADONAI transforms her through this

challenge, all of Yah’s people will rejoice with her and praise YHWH for the wonderful

things He has done.

 

      As the people of YHWH, we have a role to play.  We must be present with the

presence of ADONAI and cry with her, comfort her, serve her, encourage her with the

Word and speak the word of prophecy to her.  ADONAI is not doing this to her; but He is allowing this challenge to happen for her in order to shape her into the best person she could ever be in this side of life; and also as a testimony to all that YHWH is real in her life and only has good purpose for her.

 

      Rest assured, YHWH will accomplish all His plans for her life.

 

      Shalom!
