When God Knew You

Jeremiah 1:5

(God said) “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.”

Acts 10:34 tells us that God does not show partiality. God knew Jeremiah before He formed him in his mother’s womb. He knew us, too. Psalm 139:16 tells us that our days were written God’s book before we lived one of them.

The word “formed” in today’s scripture carries with it the meaning of a “pre-ordained divine plan, a divine purpose of a situation.” Each of us comes with His plan and purpose for our lives. With that in mind, we need to seek Him to find out what He planned for us in order to fulfill His purpose.

Each day brings a new purpose. Each situation a new plan. So we need to be constantly listening for His next instruction.

Lord God, tune my ears to Your voice so I may obey You
and fulfill the reasons You sent me here.
Thank You for Your plans mapped out long before
I lived my days.

As a side note, I’ve published a new 366 day devotional book entitled Looking Deeper. It’s available in paperback and e-reader. Looking_Deeper_Cover_for_Kindle
