“Before I shaped you in the womb,
I knew all about you.
Before you saw the light of day,
I had holy plans for you.
A prophet to the nations…
thats what I had in mind for you”
-Jeremiah 1:5 (the message)
If your like me, you needed to hear that today.
Maybe that scares you, knowing that God knows all about you.
Maybe it gives you comfort because God cares about you.
Whatever emotion this verse stirs up in you, talk to God about His love and care for you.
This was written to Jeremiah, a great prophet of Israel, and yet a depressive man.
He wrote great warnings to Israel and they continued to turn their back on Jeremiah and God. Later in the book of Jeremiah, he writes this:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Rest in the peace that God knows you,
He knows you intimately and knows everything about you.
Rest in the peace that God is going to take all your gifts that He has given you and use them for His glory.
Wait for open doors….
Don’t try to bust down your own door.
