Jeremiah 1:7-8

Illustration of Jer. 1:7-8 GWT — Don’t say that you are only a boy. You will go wherever I send you. You will say whatever I command you to say.  Don’t be afraid of people. I am with you, and I will rescue you, declares the Lord.

Lord, forgive me for using lame excuses in the past for not doing Your will. From now on, please help me to go wherever You send and say whatever You tell me. Give me boldness to say those words, and give the person I say them to a willing heart. When I’m afraid, remind me that You protect Your soldiers and empower them to accomplish Your purposes. Give me discernment, so I know when to tear down and when to build up.
