Daily Devotional “A Grand-Scale Vision”
January 17, 2022
“’Alas, Sovereign Lord,’ I said, ‘I do not know how to speak; I am too young.’
But the Lord said to me, ‘Do not say, “I am too young.” You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,’ declares the Lord.
Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, ‘I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.’”
Do you ever feel like God has called others to big plans, big visions, and important roles in his kingdom, but you’re just not cut out for it? That is what Jeremiah thought.
When God called his number, Jeremiah protested, claiming he was too young—and a poor speaker besides. But the Lord replied, “Do not say, ‘I am too young’ . . . for I am with you . . . I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”
What a grand-scale vision! Speak for God? Confront nations? Overturn realms? Build and plant in remote corners of the earth?
It seems like too much for you and me too, doesn’t it? We shrink from the task, thinking, That’s too big. Too grandiose. I can’t handle that! Yes, you can! And this very day, God is calling you to a great role, bold prayers, and mighty deeds for Christ’s kingdom.
Dear Lord, please don’t let the enemy shrink my vision of life in Christ into something small, modest, and manageable. Lift my heart today, Holy Spirit, as you show me ways I can touch a hurting world through my prayers—and with whatever else you place in my hand to do.
