Daily Inspirations

Wednesday, July 23

Have no fear before them, because I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.

Then the LORD extended his hand and touched my mouth, saying, See, I place my words in your mouth!

Jeremiah was frightened that he was unprepared for the task God had given him. Ever feel like that—not enough? Not virtuous enough or courageous enough or smart enough? We are given challenging appointments to speak for the poor, to protect the vulnerable, to demand justice and religious freedom. It’s not easy; we are not enough. But the Lord is, and he will touch us and give us what we need—words, strength, courage, faith, hope, tenacious love.
