  • When did God decide to use Jeremiah for this task?

Prepare – Saturday – March 2

Read Jer.1:11-19 - In light of Jeremiah’s difficult task, what promises does God give Jeremiah?

Think about it:

  • How might it be said that God formed you?

  • Does he know you?

  • Has he set you apart?

  • Has he appointed you?

Personally: How do you handle life when it doesn’t go the way you think it ought?
