Jeremiah 1:5. ““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— that’s what I had in mind for you.””
No one understands you. Nobody knows what you’re really like. If only someone would take the time to talk with you, then they’d see what the real you was like. We all go through tough times, sometimes even suffer through an identity crisis. That because we all look for validation from the people around us instead of from the One who made us.
Not only did God make us, but He kept the rough draft, blueprint and noted! God knows us intimately; He knows us better than we know ourselves. Based on His knowledge of us God drew up a plan for us. Yeah there is a collection plan, a grand design if you will, but God made another you-specific plan.
God’s plan for everyone is different but built on the same premise; to make you a prophet to the nations. What does that mean? We’re not called to go wailing in the dessert or declare ‘Thus saith the Lord’. We are called to prompt others into repentance by our prayers, our words and our lifestyle.
What a shame to live this life, celebrating one birthday after another and yet unable to live out God’s plan.
Think About This
Can others see a reason for God and a call to repentance in your life?
Dear Lord, May I live so that others realize You are missing in their lives but found in mine, may that inspire them to live for You. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
