Hineni

17 Jul

Hineni…

In Hebrew, there’s a very special word used by God’s people to say “yes,” to His call. It’s “Hineni.” Abraham, Moses, Isaiah and Jeremiah said it. Hineni means, in effect, ‘Here I am, Lord. Use me. Send me.’

It’s amazing how many of the great people of Scripture said “Hineni.” But what about all the people who never said “Hineni” to God’s calling? Where are all those ‘non-Hineni’ people?

You see, they never made the Bible or became prophets or disciples. There is no vision given to a prophet, or an epistle written by an apostle who didn’t say “Hineni.”

They are the unprophets, the unapostles, the undisciples, and the ungreat. They missed the call and their purpose. Don’t miss your calling.

God has a purpose for you and a calling on your life. Say “Hineni, Here I am Lord, Use me, Send me.” Don’t be named among the nameless, the unprophets, the undisciples, the unapostles, the ungreat.

Answer the voice. Rise to the call. Be named among the great, Abraham, Moses, Joshua, David, Isaiah, Mary, Peter, Paul. For God has called you to something great when you answer the call. Say “Hineni.”

Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk. Isaiah 58:8-9

Raise your hands up high to the Lord today and say “Yes”, here I am Lord, use me, send me.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
