Good Morning ! It’s another day and I will rejoice and be glad in it!. Alarm went off right at 5am, some days im lazy and don’t get up when I should. I hit that snooze button and turn over, I finally wake up all I have time for is a short prayer and praise while I jump right into the day.
This morning however I was determined not to let that happen as I have missed two mornings already. And although I get to commune with Him through out the day, that morning quiet time is the stuff!! Haha, anyways I read the first book of Jeremiah today, I must have read it before during one of my stints at reading the whole bible, but as we know there is a difference between reading and understanding.
This book focuses on the call of Jeremiah, God speaking to him and telling him that before he was formed He( God ) knew him. God was basically telling Jeremiah all these things He wanted him to do. Things he has specifically made Him for. I guess the task frightened Jeremiah so he made an excuse of being young. God countered by telling Him not to be afraid and proceeded to sanctify his mouth and sight, empowering him to carry out the assignment. We all know how great a prophet Jeremiah became.
I was siked when I hit the road this morning. Jer 1vs 8 “Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord” kept ringing in my head. What is that thing you feel God has called you to do? Are you afraid to make the first step? If you have found that thing, have you put God first every step of the way? Do you think of what others might say?
For me, I have always wanted to author a book, but there were so many excuses I came up with as to why I couldn’t. Then I finally got down to it but didn’t commit the process to God so I struggled… Now I have surrendered it to God, allowing Him to lead me along the way and it’s coming along fine. And when I get weary during the process, I remember God’s promises “See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”~ Jer 1vs10.
With confidence and humility, I will fulfil my God-given destiny…I might fall along the way but God has promised He will never leave my side.
