Story behind Way Maker song from Sinach in Nigeria!

Let’s read together: Genesis 12:1-5:

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

2 “I will make you into a great nation,
    and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
    and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
    and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
    will be blessed through you.”

So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran. He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there.

  1. What do we learn about God?
  2. What do we learn about people?
  3. What stands out to you?
  4. How can we respond today?

Just watched an interview with Sinach who wrote the song that has become famous around the world, Waymaker!. It has been translated into 50 different languages. It speaks to us so powerfully these days all around the world as we are all dealing with this pandemic time and holding on to our faith.

Meditate on these lyrics as Sinach was meditating on the call of Abraham when she wrote this inspired by God song for the whole world to grab on to and be strengthened by.

Let us hold on to our faith and grab on to the promises of God for us today:

14 Let us, then, hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we have a great High Priest who has gone into the very presence of God – Jesus, the Son of God. 15 Our High Priest is not one who cannot feel sympathy for our weaknesses. On the contrary, we have a High Priest who was tempted in every way that we are, but did not sin. 16 Let us have confidence, then, and approach God’s throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it. Hebrews 4:14-16 Good News

Feel free to let me know how I can be praying for you today!
