“‘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’”.
Does the verse above not overwhelm you? How great is our God!?
He said, “Before I formed you….I knew you. Before you came out of your mother’s womb, I already chose you.” This means Jeremiah was chosen before he was born!
And the amazing thing is, this just isn’t only about Jeremiah, it’s the same with you. God chose you before you were born.
The Bible says in Romans 8:29,
“For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son….”
The word “foreknew” used above, means more than just knowing about someone; it lends to meaning “having special interest in”. God took special interest in you and planned your life! Before you were born, He set you apart for a special work. There is a special calling upon your life to be His witness.
The Apostle Paul echoed the same message when he said, “But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen, immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood”. (Galatians 1:15-16)
Paul knew he was a chosen vessel, a chosen man to turn the Gentiles from darkness to light and from the power of satan unto God. No surprise he was passionate about the Gospel!
God has chosen you to be His witness to a people without hope, a people walking in darkness. Will you today accept that calling to be His witness and make disciples of Jesus and fulfil the plans He has for you?
