A PROMISE For ALL WHO ARE CALLED
by David Wilkerson
God gave the prophet Jeremiah a word to speak to Israel: "Thus
says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: `Behold, I will bring on
this city and on all her towns all the doom that I have pronounced
against it, because they have stiffened their necks that they might
not hear My words´" (Jeremiah 19:15). Jeremiah´s words so
incensed the chief governor of the temple that he was bound and
tortured. Yet, in spite of his suffering, Jeremiah never doubted his
calling. He knew he had been given a word from God.
God went on to say to Jeremiah, "I planned a ministry for you
and you are to build up my church. I want you to plant seeds
of my good news, so don´t worry; I´ll give you every word to
speak just when you need it. And don´t ever be afraid of men
or fear failure. Remember, as long as you live, I am with you.
Do not be discouraged but rise up in faith and do as I have
commanded you. You have one divine purpose and that is to
speak my mind" (see Jeremiah 1:9-17).
Jeremiah tells us, "The Lord put forth His hand and touched
my mouth, and the Lord said to me: `Behold, I have put My
words in your mouth´" (1:9). What an incredible moment in
this man´s life. How wonderful to know that God has put his
hand on you, revealed his thoughts, and anointed you to speak
for him. Then God added this word: "Do not be dismayed before
their faces, lest I dismay you before them" (1:17).
Beloved, this is God´s message to every Christian who has
ever been called by him. He is telling us, "Don´t let anyone
break you down! You have no reason to be confused or
despairing. I have told you I am with you and there is no reason
for burnout, no cause to quit. No matter what hardships you
face or how badly people treat you, I have put mighty pillars
around you and I am with you to deliver you!"
