“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born, I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
Poor Jeremiah, what a dreary life a prophet of doom must have had. And how many times do you suppose he said “And the LORD saith”? But what a powerful message he
brought. And God gave him the words and the strength to speak them. God knew what Jeremiah needed and provided it. Jeremiah had a really tough job ahead of him, to inform
the whole Old Testament world that they weren’t keeping the covenant. If you feel led to do something that seems too huge, remember that God knew you in your mother’s
womb, and consecrated you, and appointed you too. If you are being called, God will give you what you need to do whatever you are called to do.
