Called Young

Called Young

Do not say I am only a youth.  Jeremiah 1:7

You are never too young to be called by God. God knows just the right time to reveal to you your distinct calling. He is never too late; He is never too early.

When God revealed Himself to Jeremiah, his calling was initially met with resistance. Jeremiah had two objections. I do not know how to speak…I am only a youth. Jeremiah 1:6  It was natural for him to feel inadequate and insecure. But when he encountered God’s manifest presence those feelings vanquished. He was empowered, emboldened and activated. He went on to walk in his calling.

Like Jeremiah, you may wrestle with your calling, you may argue with God, you may be full of excuses, but don’t worry—God’s calling will prevail. Count on it!

Loving Father, I surrender to Your calling for me. I have fought it for too long. Today, I throw my hands up in the air and say ‘Not my will, but Yours be done.’
