Friend to Friend Friday

Here I Am

It is so amazing, the Holy Spirit, He allows different words in scripture to mean different things in different circumstances in a believers life, if you listen.  Yesterday, I was listening to one of my favorite radio pastors, Pastor Bob Coy (Calvary Chapel Ft Lauderdale, Florida).

He was talking about the conversion of Saul in Acts 9:1-31, what an amazing transformation!  What an amazing God we have.  What is grand is that I have read this passage over & over before,  but  never  heard. What really struck me is how the Lord spoke to me through this message today.

God spoke to Ananias in a vision, "Ananias!"  "Yes Lord, here I am." Acts 9:10.  

Wow!  During the podcast Pastor Bob Coy focused on "Here I am Lord!"   I did not know that in scripture, "Here I am." is used approx a half dozen or more times by Abraham (Gen 22:1), Esau (Gen 27:1), Jacob (Gen 31:11),  Moses (Exodus 3:4), Samuel ( 1Sam 3:4), Isaiah (Isaiah 6:8), Mary (Luke 1:38) & Ananias (Acts 9:10).

When I looked up these verses,  I realized the Lord was calling to his chosen.  And they were all available!  "Here I am Lord."

I looked at my walk with the Lord and asked myself, "Am I available when the Lord says, "Amanda, Amanda, are you walking with me? are you following me? are you listening to my voice?"

Yes, Lord I'm listening, You chose me, a sinner, not deserving of Your love!  Saved by Grace.  I love you Lord with all my heart, mind & soul...,
Here I Am Lord!
