If God calls, do not be afraid

Jeremiah 1:4-8  (Jeremiah’s call to be a prophet)

Now the word of the Lord came to me saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Truly I do not know how to speak, for I am only a boy.” But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a boy’; for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and you shall speak whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, says the Lord.”

Reflect: What might God be calling you to do? What words might God call you to speak? What scares you as you reflect on these questions? What would it look like to not be afraid to speak God's words?
