The Hebrew alphabet has word pictures associated with its letters. The word/picutres for this new year 2016-5776 on the Jewish calendar are 70 = “ayin = an eye” and 6 = “vav = a peg”.
That makes this year, the year to “see a peg”.
A peg, nail, or hook holds things together, and makes them secure. Last week’s word re God bringing new things into our lives, requires transitioning from old ways to new ones. How cool that in the midst of change, if we look, we will see God has made a way to connect it all and make things secure. The key is in our looking.
Sorry for the repeat, but until we learn to live in the spirit, we will only see with our natural eyes what is directly in our face. So we have to learn to look with our spiritual eyes and see the peg….the point where everything is secured. This is where all things work together for good…..
That isn’t how things usually look in the natural realm. But, this is the year God will give us an eye to see things from His perspective and where He has got us covered!
This is a time to step into the new assignments, relationships, strategies, locations, etc. Ask the Lord to open your eyes to see your destiny ….to see the divine connections and alignments that will bring you into a new season of increase and abundance.
When you do this, you will see Jesus, He is the One, Who holds it all together. He’s the Peg,the Nail, that held our opposition to the cross….and made the way for us to walk in victory!
The key words: I hear are “expansion and increase”. As the Israelites journeyed in the wilderness, tent pegs were used to secure the tabernacle.
“Clear lots of ground for your tents! Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big! Use plenty of rope, drive the tent pegs deep. You’re going to need lots of elbow room for your growing family. You’re going to take over whole nations; you’re going to resettle abandoned cities.
Don’t be afraid – you’re not going to be embarrassed. Don’t hold back – you’re not going to come up short.” (Isaiah 54:2-4, Message Bible)
Can you see it?! Grab the dream, the vision, that which seemed impossible and go for it!
