There are those that would say of you, “I don’t understand how she/he was placed in this position. She /he has not paid their dues.”
But I hear The Lord saying,
“They did not see what you went through as a child and you called My name so many times …
They did not see the maturing in the Spirit that happened as I brought you up Myself…. They did not see that like David we slew the lion and the bear together……. and they do not know that I have called you to rule and reign with Me and that this is only the beginning!
So take heart My child, for many jealousies will arise like King Saul of old, but you will rise to the occasion and be a deliverer to the people to whom I will send you.”
“Then the word of the Lord came unto me, 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.”
Then said I, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a child.”
But the Lord said unto me, “Say not, ‘I am a child,’ for thou shalt go to all whom I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.
Be not afraid of their faces, for I am with thee to deliver thee,” saith the Lord.
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.
See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms to root out and to pull down, and to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant” Jeremiah 1:4-10 (KJ21).
