4 The Lord gave me this message:
5 “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.
Before you were born I set you apart
and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
6 “O Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I can’t speak for you! I’m too young!”
7 The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you.Jeremiah 1:4-7

Not only does God have a calling on our life, but he has set us apart before our parents even thought of us. It’s OK for us to be real with God, when it comes to our inadequacies, because that my friend is when God’s power is made perfect – in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).
Jeremiah was young and at an age, at that time, where it was not acceptable for the youth to teach the elders, but God specifically called him to do just that, because of the wickedness of the Jewish nation and rulers. God told him to oppose them!
God is not subject to human rules or traditions, he is able to protect you and direct you, even when you must oppose the immorality of government. We must obey leaders and authority, as long as they don’t try to force you to disobey what God’s word commands.
God’s calling is not limited by age, appearance, background, or human knowledge. God says,
If you don’t know Jesus as your personal Savior, then receive Him now. Your citizenship will be in heaven and you will become a child of God.
Romans 10:9-10 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”
SAY this beginning PRAYER:
God I’m a sinner and right now I turn from my sins. I ask you to forgive my sins, that I may be right with you. I believe that Jesus Christ: lived, died and that He rose from the dead. Right now, I ask you Jesus to be my Savior and Lord, that I may have eternal life in heaven. Thank you God for saving me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen!
