God may assign you a demanding task, but His call keeps us going when we don’t want to go and are ready to quit. We have the promise of God’s purpose.
“I chose you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart before you were born’ (Jeremiah 1:5).”
Like Jeremiah, God knows you, He chose you and He appointed you. When you are hand-picked by God, and commissioned to serve this ought to give you a great sense of purpose.
Jesus, too, was called to be a prophet. He traveled from place to place challenging the people to change so that their future would be guaranteed. Jesus spoke to the hearts of people. Most did not accept his message for they did not want to change.
The promise of God’s purpose allows us to let go of our own plans and to receive God’s plan without fear. Like Jeremiah and Jesus, we need to accept that our future is not our own. We are God’s. He has a distinct plan and purpose for our lives.
When we are ready, God will then teach us what we need to know to fulfill our calling.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11).”
