Prophet Of God, Search Your Heart

Prophet Of God, Search Your Heart
by Patricia Hamel

The Lord spoke to the prophet Jeremiah and told Him that He
was called before He was born and that He had ordained Him
to be a prophet to the Nations. Has God called you to serve
as one of His prophets? It is a noble calling but one that
will cost you everything. Jeremiah like many of us came up
with what He thought was a good excuse. Lord I am young and
cannot speak! What excuses have you given to the Lord when
He has called you to do something you feel inadeqauate about
doing? You need to be determined to fulfill your calling. The
Lord told Jeremiah that he would go and speak whatever the
Lord commanded him. He was told not to fear man but that the
Lord was there to deliver him. Do you fear man more than you
fear the Lord. Prophet of God search your heart, for the
Lord knows what is inside the deep recesses of your heart.
Do you fear man or do you fear the Lord? God is asking you
this deep and soul searching question. God is saying, that
He has put His words in your mouth and with His unction you
will speak them. God is asking you today to put total trust
in Him and He will fulfill His destiny in your life.

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.” Jeremiah 1:5 (NKJV)
