Jeremiah 1:6 – Then I said, “Alas, Lord GOD! Behold, I do not know how to speak, because I am a youth.”
Have you ever been given a job to do that you feel is too big for you? Have you ever been given a task that feels too hard too do? Well, that’s exactly what Jeremiah, the Prophet was going through in today’s verse. He’d been given this awesome task to do for God. Jeremiah had been called by God to speak His word to the entire nation of Israel. A pretty massive task wasn’t it?
But the problem was, Jeremiah didn’t know how to speak, He was young, unskilled, inexperienced and just generally felt pretty inadequate. Have you ever felt pretty inadequate (helpless and unworthy) when either God or someone else has given you a task to do? Well, your story and Jeremiah’s story doesn’t end there. Just because you may be young or inexperienced, God can still you for the amazing plan He has for your life.
The truth is, when God asks us to do something, we were never expected us to achieve it in our own strength – God will supernaturally strengthen you in the work He has for you to do, trust Him! He’s a God of the impossible.
Cube Challenge: Whatever the difficult or seemingly impossible tasks/ jobs/dreams that are facing you right now, lay them before God; pray in faith and He will strengthen you and make your impossibility become possible when you do things in His strength!
