““Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument], And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own]; I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”” (Jeremiah 1:5 (AMP) “4 just as [in His love] He chose us in Christ [actually selected us for Himself as His own] before the foundation of the world, so that we would be holy [that is, consecrated, set apart for Him, purpose-driven] and blameless in His sight. In love 5 He predestined and lovingly planned for us to be adopted to Himself as [His own] children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the kind intention and good pleasure of His will—” Ephesians 1:4-5 (AMP)
There’s not anyone in the entire world that knows you and loves you like God does, not even your parents and family. No one sees what God sees when He looks at you. Even before you were conceived in your mother’s womb, God loved you and at the precise moment when you were conceived, He was singing praises and rejoicing over you thinking about all the good things He had planned for your life.
Your parents were hand chosen by God so you would have the precise DNA structure He needed you to have so that you could be fashioned into the wonderful person you are! Your skin color, your hair color, the color of your eyes, your speech pattern, your talents, your gifts and even your desires that would spring forth from deep inside of you. God planned all this even before the foundation of the world. All of this was placed within you by God’s hand with great love.
God investigated your future and thought about all the mistakes (wrong choices) you would make, the sins you would commit and even the sins committed against you. That’s why He placed inside you and even the circumstances in your life were built the things that would be needed to guarantee that through God you would be able to concur and overcome all difficulties, learn from them, grow in them and you would realize that He turned these circumstances in your life to a greater good. He worked all this out in advance for those who loves Him.
Just think, God ordained the specific place and time for your to be born into this world, the home(s) you lived in, the people you would grow up with, the family you have, the job you have…all of this God did for you so you could make a “unique” impact for His kingdom! With God’s infinite wisdom and understanding, as He was thinking about you before the foundation of the world, He also thought about other people He would create around you, keeping you and your future in mind. He was thinking about how to position His chosen ones so they could be woven together in His body so they could make the greatest impact here on earth for His kingdom.
Have you ever felt like there’s something missing in your life? Something important to sustain you mentally and/or physically? God created us to operate in unity with everyone who has surrendered to Him. It’s like a great big pie and you are just one piece of the pie. To be a whole pie all pieces must work together in unity to complete the whole pie. God knew this and placed in each of us a longing for fellowship with other Christians.
As we learn to find what’s missing in our life in God, He will show us the paths to “green pastures” where we find relief and comfort. As we grow closer to God, learn more about Him by reading His Word daily, He will take us to beautiful levels of fellowship through His Spirit where we can grow in intimacy with Jesus.
As you grow in your intimacy with God you will begin to understand how very precious you have always been to Him and always will be to Him. God loves you with a love that is unconditional and everlasting. As your love for God grows you will notice your love for people growing and the way you look at people changing because you will begin to see and love as God sees and loves! As you allow God to peel off your former life and clothe you in His righteousness, you will find what true intimacy and friendship is all about.
Some people in life have walked the same path you have walked, and some have not. Some will understand your past journey, and some will not. But you have walked the path you have walked for a reason. Think about it, when someone has walked the same path you have, you have more of an understanding of what they are going through, for you have already “been there and done that”. You know how to pray for them and what to pray for. Your heart breaks over these people’s lives and their circumstances that separates them for the mighty love of God! Because you love God, long for a deep, rich, personal relationship with Him, you can share in His suffering over His people who have been blinded to His glory, love, forgiveness, goodness, mercy and grace.
It’s our passion for the unbelievers to know the love of God that should determine us to grow stronger in our knowledge of God, in our love of God and everything His Word teaches us. Don’t let anything of this earth quench our fiery pursuit for the unbelievers! God has assigned angels to each of us to assist us in His kingdom work. Before you were born, God provided for everything we would need through our journey in life as each of us steps out in faith to obey what God created us to do.
Always remember, even before the foundation of earth, God formed everything in this world for a purpose and He determined in advance a way of redemption for everything in your life to be a part of His great plan. The story of your life was written so that others can see His glory and goodness and it will draw them to Him.
Stay close to God by spending time reading His Word and saturating your day in His presence, for as you do you will see your faith rise you above the storms in your life. God will strengthen you through your trials as you stay close to Him. As you humble yourself before God, He will honor you above those who have let pride get in between them and God. He is your provider and will meet all your needs! There is no one nor nothing that can come against what God is doing in your life. God has the power of working miracles at your disposal, so walk in the authority He has given you in Christ Jesus, for you will not be shaken! Take the visions God has given you for it is time to break forth!
NOW is the time you will see God’s mighty power manifested in new and mysterious ways. God is releasing a harvest of provision for His people that will enable you to accomplish His will in your life. Doors that have never been open before are opening and nothing will be able to shut them as a great shift is happening in the atmosphere around you. Get ready for your break through, get ready for your “shift”, get ready for the earth is moaning and groaning for God’s sons and daughters to come forth!
