Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
God sends Jeremiah a powerful message here, he’s telling him he already knew him before he was sent to Earth, and he already had great plans for him. The world likes to tell us were born by mistake or a random act. But we are Gods children, you are here for a purpose, God knows and loves you!
Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 1:8
Many times when God calls us to do something, we don’t out of fear of being persecuted. But just as God told Jeremiah, he won’t leave him or forsake him, just as he won’t leave you. If your doing Gods will then he will protect you, if God is for us who can be against us
Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. Jeremiah 1:9
Do you keep quiet when you see injustice because you don’t know what to say? God will speak for you thru the Holy Spirit, don’t be afraid of evil. The Word of God is like a double edged sword and cuts to the heart.
The LORD said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.” Jeremiah 1:12
God is watching us to see if we fulfill our destiny or to see if we choose to live for ourselves. Your deeds will not go unnoticed. Even if the world doesn’t notice, your reward will be great in Heaven
Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them. Jeremiah 1:17
Are you ready? Are you prepared? Don’t allow yourself to be caught off guard, stay alert. Always be prepared to do Gods will and spread his word
They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 1:19
Just as God told Jeremiah, the world will fight against you, but will not defeat you. Don’t be afraid be strong and courageous as God has commanded you.
We can learn a lot from these words exchanged between God and Jeremiah, he’s calling you also, are you listening or resisting. God has made you and set up apart, answer your calling, in Jesus Name Amen
