Called by God! (special song for you)

Jeremiah 1: 4-8
"The word of the Lord came to me, saying, "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," I said, " I do not know how to speak; I am only a child." 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. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you, declares the Lord".

How many times have we thought like Jeremiah, when we knew God wanted us to do something or called us to do something, we had the "I'm too" excuse? I'm too young, I'm not smart enough, I'm tired, I just don't know if I can do it, I'm not ready, on and on and on".

The Lord made it clear to Jeremiah and it is clear to us: it's not about us! He knew about us before we were even formed in our mother's womb. This says to me that when He did form us in our mother's womb, he took the time to include everything we would need to accomplish the call He has on our individual lives!

God quickly responded to Jeremiah and responds to us to not tell Him what we can or cannot do. Our creator and Lord knows exactly what we are built to do. We may not think it makes sense and we wont understand it all, but we MUST go, we MUST do, we MUST be all He has called us to be.

I encourage each of you, as I encourage myself to seek the Lord like never before. Ask Him, what is it that He would have for your life this season. He will respond. We are not to be afraid to do His will, for He is always with us and will rescue us. Now, let's go, let's do, let's be!!!

My desire passionately is to be what you've called me to be!
