Step back in time with me.
When was the last time you said, “I can’t do that.” or “I don’t know how to do that.” And you wanted so badly to give up and “squirm” away because, in your mind, you weren’t “the person cut-out for the job?”
Well, rest assured, you are definitely not alone, even though so often, in the toughest times, you might feel like it.
Use your imagination and taste life as Jeremiah tried to swallow what the Lord God was saying to him. (This is Jer. 1:5-8)
The Lord said to him, “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.”
“Ah, Sovereign Lord,” Jeremiah replied, “I do not know how to speak. I am only a child.”
The Lord said, “Do not say, ‘I am only a child.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you.” declares the Lord
You might be stepping into an unknown area right now, maybe feeling like you’re stepping off a cliff. But God is with you.
He’s leading you; He’s guiding you. He won’t let you down.
