“Look, today I have set you up as a fortified city – an iron pillar and bronze walls – against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, its princes, against it’s kohanim ( priests) and against the people of the land. Though they will fight against you, they will not win, for I am with you, to deliver you.” (TLV) Jeremiah 1:18-19
Nosh: When God calls us to serve Him, there is oftentimes strong resistance to His purposes and plans. In fact, He warns Jeremiah to expect resistance. Nevertheless, His desire is that we be fearless in the face of these challenges – trusting that God Almighty, will triumph on our behalf! So how do we express fearlessness? By pushing against the resistance, moving forward in faith and never giving up!
