Led to Lament // Over Nations and Kingdoms // Jeremiah 1:1-19 // Oct 5 2014

Only strength can cooperate. Weakness can only beg.
— Dwight D. Eisenhower

At the outset of his ministry, the prophet Jeremiah sees his weakness and doubts whether he is qualified to speak God's word. But God assures Jeremiah that he is filled with divine power as one set over nations and kingdoms. Little does Jeremiah know that divine power does not overcome human weakness but rather is manifest in it.
