Can God open our mouths? And if that were to happen, what would God have us say?
The Old Testament offers several stories of reluctant prophets. One of them is Jeremiah, who, upon receiving his call, protested that he didn’t know how to speak. What followed was a truly dramatic episode: “The Lord put out his hand and touched my mouth; and the Lord said to me, ‘Now I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to pull down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant’” ( Jeremiah 1:9-10).
