The word of the LORD came to me, saying,”Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” – Jeremiah 1: 4-5
Read Jeremiah 1: 4-5 in context
After college and before meeting my wife, I did everything I could to stay busy or distracted. I didn’t realize it until much later, but I was very lonely. I remember writing a letter to my future wife, before I ever met her. It described how I hoped our relationship might be.
I didn’t have the power to give that dream form. I had to wait and let God full fill that dream for me. But God didn’t have to wait for me. Like Jeremiah, God has a plan for me. He was thinking about me and planning for me. before he created me. He was working out a design schematic for me and the life he wants to see me live the way a master craftsman plans his work. Then, when it was time, he gave that plan form.
Maybe you’re reading this today because God planned it that way. God thought through all the details about you and how your life should be before you were ever conceived. You are God’s living breathing plan in motion.
