God Has Equipped You

Jeremiah 1:4-8, “Now the word of the LORD came to me saying, ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.’ Then I said, ‘Ah, Lord God! Truly I do not know how to speak, for I am only a boy.’ But the LORD said to me, ‘Do not say, I am only a boy;’ for you shall go to all to whom I send you and you shall speak whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.”

As you walk and move forward towards your destiny this week, do not afraid. Instead, be encouraged in what God was telling Jeremiah, because the same message applies to you. Let me explain. God wants you to know that the reason you will not have a problem reaching your destiny in life is because you have a rich history with God, your are wonderfully made in God’s image and God (and only God) is the author of your destiny and not anyone else. When you come to believe that with ALL your heart, mind, soul and strength, you will be able to look at your destiny and say, “I am made for this, because God has equipped me with everything I need.”

Go and be everything God created and destined you to be this week!
