I love what God declared to Jeremiah when he appointed the young man to be a prophet:
“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.”
With these words, God told Jeremiah an amazing truth: he had been designed by God, for God. When I start asking questions about my identity and purpose in life, I know Who has the answers. The One who created me has a plan for me – for each one of us!
“You weren’t an accident. You weren’t mass produced. You aren’t an assembly-line product. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on the Earth by the Master Craftsman.”
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
