This message by Pastor Rod Harris was delivered at Trinity Baptist Church on Sunday evening, June 10, 2007, and was taken from Jeremiah 1:11-19.
How do you wrap your arms around the kind of task that God gave to Jeremiah? “How do you eat that elephant, anyway?” The problem is in the doing. God has spoken clearly Jeremiah’s task, now in the passage before us, He gives Jeremiah a little nudge, a push.
When called to a monumental task God graciously preserves and enables His servant.
- vs. 11, 12: God reminds Jeremiah of the certainty of His promise.
- vs. 13-16: God warns Jeremiah of the fierceness of His judgement.
- vs. 17-19: God assures Jeremiah of the abundance of His provision.
