Even a Young Man..

Jeremiah 1:6--"Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child."

At the very beginning of Jeremiah, God calls him to be a prophet. God calls him out in verse 5 saying, "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."

Although this calling is very specific to Jeremiah, we do see something very important here. God calls Jeremiah to be used for His purposes at a very young age. I noticed how in verse 6 Jeremiah calls himself a child. Jeremiah does not think he can be used by God because of his age.

While looking into this verse I found that Jeremiah was probably 13-17 years old. Jeremiah was only a teenager! Yet, God calls him to do great things for Him!

The principle to consider is this: Nobody is too young to be used by God. You are not too young to be used by God either! Don't hinder the work of God through your life simply because of age. Allow God to use you despite your excuses!
