Jeremiah 1:18-19 (MSG)
“Stand at attention while I prepare you for your work.
I’m making you as impregnable as a castle,
Immovable as a steel post,
solid as a concrete block wall.
You’re a one-man defense system
against this culture,
Against Judah’s kings and princes,
against the priests and local leaders.
They’ll fight you, but they won’t
even scratch you.
I’ll back you up every inch of the way.”
He has been strengthening your character with patience, stamina and passion.
He has also been putting together all the talents within you to equip you for this moment.
You will be hurled into a divine work but you will also need to remain solid, steadfast and unshakable through it.
You may come up against supernatural powers that dominate this culture, opposition in the high places of influence and spiritual forces in the heavenly realms. But you are empowered to conquer them and come out without even a scratch.
God promises that even with all of this opposition to the work, He will back you up. He is behind you all the way. And if God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31b NIV)
