Devotional Readings

Jeremiah 1 – I am not a Prophet…

I’ve noted before that I am on my fourth reading of the Prophets in the Old Testament, under my 10 Lists Reading Plan. I expect there is much new ground to observe as I again read this book.

it is interesting how Jeremiah starts out….

Jer 1:4  Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Jer 1:5  Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.


Jer 1:6  Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.


Jer 1:7  But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.

Jer 1:8  Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.

Jer 1:9  Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.
