Binnui derives from the root-verb (bana) which means to build. It is used to describe the construction of all kinds of buildings; a city, a tower an altar, a house, the temple, a fortress or a wall.
There are builders and there are destroyers. May you be granted the gift to discern the difference. But there are also people who are like well fortified buildings and others resembling dipalidated constructions with porous walls. The leaders must spend a lot of time on self-development. Reading and studying to show himself approved as the person called to give direction. Significant investment and time has gone into a well constructed building …care has been taken to provide the best fittings. Spend more money on books and training than on cars and vain possessions. Read biographies to see how lives are built …day by day experiences can enrich our lives if we commit to get better at what we do.
We are also God’s altar … meant to be pure … God’s temple. Society will think little of alcohol, tobacco and many unmentionable defilements now considered to be entertainment …but you are different careful not to defile God’s temple – your body, where God wants to dwell. Show example as a leader who is well built …fearfully put together by God and for God.
Eph 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Verses for further meditation

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, help and show me how to be God’s building. Amen.
As Nehemiah’s wall was built, so will we see a reconstruction in all that may appear in distress and in waste. Nehemiah trusted and feared God, putting his faith in the Almighty whose strength is limitless to exceed all our expectations. Look out daily for Nehemiah’s Wall in 2015 and do invite friends to subscribe to the free email or social media posts.
I am praying someone with a burden to be used by God in building will receive a fresh vision and get the job done.
