“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5 NASB
The implications of this Scripture are huge. It says before you or any other baby was formed in the womb, God knew you. He knew who you would become, what you were to accomplish, what your personality would be like, everything!
God has His eye on every human being BEFORE they were formed in the womb.
The Scripture also says that He consecrated you. He set you apart. He has a plan for every one BEFORE they are formed in the womb.
But God doesn’t force His will on anyone. He allows us to live our lives the way we choose. His plan is there, waiting for us, if we choose to accept it.
It makes sense that if God knew you and consecrated you BEFORE you were born, that you should want to know and walk in what God has for you before anything else.
He is God. And what He has for you, what He has set apart, is so much better than anything you can imagine.
God’s plan for your life is easily found when you start living for Him!
Are you frustrated, burned out, stressed out? Could it be that you are like that because you are not following in God’s will for your life.
Get close to God and see what He has for you. Spend time with Him. Enough time! Not a little bit here and there! Get to know your creator, the One who set you apart and know His will. It is the best place to be!
Lord, show me more of You. Forgive me for taking You for granted. I want to know You more. As I draw near to You, draw near to me and show me Your ways.
