Jeremiah 1 – 17
But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a child.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. – Jeremiah 1:7
How many of us are called to speak in behalf of God? How many of us are making excuses not to do the great commission of making disciples of all nations?
Just like Jeremiah, I don’t feel confident sharing God’s word. Why? Basically because of fear. I fear for I am very young spiritually. Or, maybe, I just see myself young?! Now I understand that it doesn’t really matter how you see yourself. What matters is how God sees you.
Needless to say, if you are called to speak, you should speak. Or else, you suffer consequences.
Are you shy to speak God’s word because you feel young? If this is so, may I encourage you to speak His word?
Glory to God.

Whenever the LORD raised up a judge for them, he was with the judge and saved them out of the hands of their enemies as long as the judge lived; for the LORD had compassion on them as they groaned under those who oppressed and afflicted them. - Judges 2:18
How many times have we sinned? How much more of God‘s compassion do we need to seriously turn to Him? What do we need to repent?
I have fallen so many times. I am just thankful that God is patient and is full of grace. He has given me more time to repent and turn to Him. Are you doing the same thing?
I think I’ve said this before in one of my older posts. Currently, I am a bank’s slave. This is so because I turned away from God, followed my own appetites and got in to debt. I think I was serving the god of materialism. Now, I am crying out and turned to God so that He can free me from this bondage or slavery. I know I will be delivered soon. I just hope I won’t fall again in to the enemy’s trap. Will you please pray for me?
Are you serving other gods? Wouldn’t you want to be free? How can I pray for you today?
Glory to God?
