I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born, I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.
Often, I’ll listen to worship music, read my inspirational books and daily devos, pray about the problems in my life, and, throughout all of that, I forget to truly connect with the One who made me. The One who planned me thought of every single part of my personality, of all the promises He would make and KEEP to me, of every time He would wrap me in His arms, telling me once more He has me. He thought of every little detail. He designed me. Just the way He wanted, no mistakes. He knew me. In my mother’s womb, when I hadn’t met a single person yet, there was One who knew every single detail about me. Two thousand years ago, when He was pierced on that cross, bleeding to the point of being unrecognizable, He knew and saw me. He acted in such Love for me to say that I’m worthy, not because of anything I would say or do, but because He made me. He knew me. He said I was worthy.
And so, to say all of that, God sets us apart. Yes, that means stepping out in faith and loving those around you. Pray! Invite! Do your good things! But remember, in all of it, connect with the One who knew and knows you. Get to know the One who formed you even more.
Listen - God wrote and starred in the best Love story there ever was and ever will be. When you’re in your Bible time, truly listen. Learn more about the One who designed and appointed you.
Live Differently - Let the One who made you and the One who knows you change you from the inside out. Let time with Him remind you to live knowing you’re loved.
Jesus, thank You for making me on purpose for a purpose. Thank You for knowing me. I pray that as I read Your word and experience Your Love, I will know You more. Amen.
