God chose you and anointed you with His mighty power. God inspired you and sanctified you with the blood of the Lamb.
“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.”
God sets you apart for Him. God shines His light on you and it is clear His Spirit is alive in you. It’s time for you to understand just how significant your life and purpose is.
“Alas, Sovereign Lord,” Jeremiah said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.” Jeremiah 1:6
Jeremiah assumed he would be passed over. He had never spoken for God before. But He is the one God chose.
“The Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ 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.” Jeremiah 1:7-8
Jeremiah left a legacy of purpose on the earth for the Lord. We read about it in the book of Jeremiah we have today. All because He said yes to God when God first asked him to speak.
Moses had a similar experience of God’s mighty power working in him. When God needed someone to liberate the Israelites from Egypt and Pharaoh’s oppression, he sent Moses. Why? Because Moses had roots in Egypt. He was found by Phaorah’s daughter in a basket floating down the river in Exodus 2:5. She took him in as her own son.
God called Moses many years later in Exodus 3:10 to be the spokesman and redeemer for Israel. Moses did not want to return to Egypt at first. But God needed him.
“Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” God said, “I will be with you.” Exodus 3:11-12
God has been choosing people to speak for Him ever since. Ezekiel. Joel. Malachi. John. Mary. Paul. The list goes on.
God intervenes in the world by speaking through His people.
God will put His words in your mouth if you believe in His truth.
Raise your voice and speak up.
“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
