Creation is Limited

In Jeremiah chapter 1 we learn of the young prophet's call to be a prophet of the Jews and neighboring nations. 

When confronted Jeremiah tells the Lord God, "Behold, I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.”  Not only does Jeremiah admit that due to his young age he could not have enough wisdom to prophesy to the nations, but it reveals the fallibility of creation and no work of the Lord is possible without our Lord God.

I believe this was a humbling situation. When creation fails to satisfy your heart, it's not a tragedy, it's grace. God's teaching you that what you seek can only be found in him.
