The Name of the Game (Jeremiah 1:7-8)

But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.  Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord

When God says go who are we to say no?

One of the stories my mother used to share to us when we were still kids was about Jonah and the big fish. I could still recall vividly the picture of Jonah inside the stomach of the big fish in our bulky biblical story book. What would be the moral lesson of the story? When God days go, do not say no. Obedience is the name of the game.

When it comes to speaking, there really are those people who can easily perform the task of sharing what is their opinion or message to the public. However, a percentage includes individuals who are struggling when it comes to public speaking or even just talking to strangers. A short simple paragraph to read in front of the mass could weaken their knees making speaking a hard task.

I am one of those in the latter category. I am not good in speaking for I am afraid of the attention of many. Moses was in the same situation. He was not into public speaking. He reason that out to God and God was able to make a way. He used Aaron to convey messages to the Israelites.

God doesn’t look at the age, features, capabilities or status of a person. If He wants to use you, He will use you. Whether you are as young as David who fought the giant or as incomplete (physically) as Nick Vujicic who is sharing God’s word all over the world. Do not say you cannot because God can and will make a way just like what He did to Moses. Do not wait to be swallowed by the big fish before we obey.

God’s vision is our mission. His vision is that many will be saved and how can we fulfill that? By sharing His words to unbelievers, by being an instrument that they will know, accept and believe in Jesus, by praying for those who are still living in darkness to see the light.
