Ancient Hebrew Pictograph Devotional!
Based on Psalm 119
Direct My Steps O Lord!
"Does the shoe fit?” As a child I loved getting fitted for shoes at our area mall. The salesperson made such a fuss over me, trying to find for me just the right size. It was a special treat to look for new shoes. My foot was measured on an adjustable metal tray, that was set with perfection by the kind salesperson, who would sit my fuzzy socks gently in place.
I needed to get just the right size. If I did not, my running could be impaired. Those strong muscles I was building on the track team after school would be worth naught without a proper fit.
I was measured, fitted, and even laced up. I received the “full service treatment!”
And, I enjoyed every minute of it!
Now what does a little girl getting laced up in a shoe store have to do with Ancient Hebrew?
Did you know that the Hebrew pictograph for the letter Aleph has the meaning of
strength and leader?
Keep that precious bit of truth in mind as you drink in the passage today! Oh, and don't forget the shoes!
You will be needing your own pair in just a moment!
Today's Scripture Reading:
Psa 119:1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
Psa 119:2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
Psa 119:3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
Psa 119:4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
Psa 119:5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
Psa 119:6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
Psa 119:7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
Psa 119:8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
The Psalmist breathes out the words, “O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!”
The Hebrew word, for directed is כּוּן koon, which can have the meaning, “to be fitted.”
What does he wanted to fitted with? No other than the law of the LORD.
He prays and sings of a day when he will yield to his Master, Adonai, to allow himself to be lead in Holy ways. To leave behind the ways of the world.
He wants to walk in God's ways, be fitted by his Maker, to walk strong, with “uprightness of heart.”
As for the little girl in the mall, she did not always get to take home the shoes she picked out.
She is asking God today, to fashion her with shoes that walk in His ways alone.
Lord, you are our Leader and our Strength! We want to be fit for You! Teach us to bow low to You, O Mighty One, so we may then stand erect and walk with uprightness in heart- this day and everyday!
