Jeremiah 1:5–7 (NKJV)
5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I
sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
6 Then said I: “Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.”
7 But the LORD said to me: “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ For you shall go to
all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak.
How many make excuses in not following God’s calling in their lives.
Jeremiah’s excuse was his youth. Moses could have told God he was too old,
he was eighty. Exodus 7:6–7 ,“Then Moses and Aaron did so; just as the
LORD commanded them, so they did. And Moses was eighty years old and
Aaron eighty-three years old when they spoke to Pharaoh.”
We make many excuses in following God’s call. Age cannot be one of them.
You are never too young or too old.
