“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart for my holy purpose. I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 GW
With all I’ve been through in my life, sometimes I need to be reminded of how God sees me. I need to remember that way back, I mean way, way back, before I was a gleam in my daddy’s eye, long before he was even born, God knew me and had purpose for my life in the earth.
And it’s not just me. You too! Most of you wouldn’t give me a cursory glance if you saw me at the mall but God knows me by name. That gets me excited! Of all the people on the earth, when I call on Him, He answers me. He’s not confused or left wondering at my voice. He knows exactly who I am.
And here’s another great wonder to remember and ponder on today; His Holy Spirit has been deposited in me so that we can share life together. He doesn’t just walk with me and talk with me, He’s in me constantly telling me things about Him and His deep love for me.
When I need a doctor, He’s mine! When I need a provider, He’s mine! When I’m feeling alone, His Presence fills me up until I overflow with joy. Oh and when He needs hands, I’m His. When He needs arms, I’m His. When He needs a voice, I’m His. When He needs feet, I’m His. Just as I have access to all He is, He has access to all I am.
You’ll have to excuse me now as I’m a bit overwhelmed with His glory as He’s just shown me another aspect of what He has planned for me today.
