Principle scripture Reading : Genesis 22-11
Beloved when the Lord our God, the creator of the heavens and the earth calls for your attention what is your authentic response?
Abraham, the father of many nations as the Bible depicts him was also uniquely known as a friend of God. His unique title as a friend of God was established due to how he responded to God when God called him.
Conquering nation, Hineni, which is the Hebrew translation of ‘here I am’ means that when God calls you and calls upon you, you make your whole self available to Him in totality withholding nothing!
Your state of Hineni means that your time, your finances, your body, your everything… has come into full submission of God’s will.
Beautiful Conqueror, choosing the state of Hineni is not by force, its by full surrender and will to be subject to the master. Hineni is servitude and stewardship, it’s the revelation of who God is in your life, its that moment of awakening!
Because Abraham dwelled constantly in the beautiful state of Hineni, he lacked no good thing, so abundantly blessed was Abraham!
Beloved, the state of Hineni therefore, brings forth only goodness and friendship from the Lord.
Let each of us search our hearts today and make up our minds like Abraham to walk from this day forward in Hineni with the Lord our God.
