Jeremiah 1 ( World English Bible )
Jer 1:1, The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, of the priests who were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin:
Jer 1:2, to whom the word of Yahweh* came in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign.
Jer 1:3, It came also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, to the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, to the carrying away of Jerusalem captive in the fifth month.
Jer 1:4, Now the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
Jer 1:5, ”Before I formed you in the belly, I knew you. Before you came forth out of the womb, I sanctified you. I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
Jer 1:6, Then I said, “Ah, Lord* Yahweh! Behold, I don’t know how to speak; for I am a child.”
Jer 1:7, But Yahweh said to me, “Don’t say, ‘I am a child;’ for to whoever I shall send you, you shall go, and whatever I shall command you, you shall speak. ( emphasis added )
Jer 1:8, Don’t be afraid because of them; for I am with you to deliver you,” says Yahweh.
Jer 1:9, Then Yahweh put forth his hand, and touched my mouth; and Yahweh said to me, “Behold, I have put my words in your mouth.
I may never do amazing things like Elijah, Samson or Paul, but if I just share the word of God, then who knows? Someday day the smallest thing that I might say or do just might split the hardest human heart that could ever be. The Word of God is the most powerful force in all the universe and can do things beyond our power to comprehend.
Believe these things – for they are right and true.
One last thing…
