I thought this was worth posting today. Some great teaching here from Bob Gass. Worth sitting down with a cuppa, chewing this stuff over then applying it to your life by prayer and action. I’ve highlighted words etc that I think are very significant!

‘I knew you…I sanctified you…I ordained you.’
Jeremiah 1:5 NKJV
God told Jeremiah, ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew yousanctified you [set you apart]…I ordained you a prophet to the nations.’ Observe: 1) God knew you. The word knew means ‘to have intimate knowledge of’. When your delicate fingers were just a web, before your heartbeat registered on the monitor or the doctor could predict your gender, God knew all about you. ‘You…scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe’ (Psalm 139:16 TLB). God knew what you were born to be, and provided everything you’d need to fulfil your life’s purpose. 2) God sanctified you [set you apart]. He fixed it so you wouldn’t fit in, and designed you so you couldn’t rest any place He didn’t want you to be. He intended you to wander and feel lost until you found Him. That’s why you’re uncomfortable in certain places and around certain people. It doesn’t matter how hard you try, you won’t fit in because God has set you apart for Himself. 3) God ordained you. Men may ordain, but only God can foreordain. Stop worrying about who does or doesn’t recognize your gifts. John Mason says, ‘Each person has been custom-made by God the Creator. Each of us has a unique and personal call on our lives…to be our own selves and not copies of other people.’ God told Jeremiah, ‘Go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you’ (Jeremiah 1:7-8 NLT). So the word for you today is: you’ve been called by God.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father God, this knowledge is astounding, that before I was knitted together in my mother’s womb, you knew me, chose me and divinely designed me to be the unique me that I am. WOW. All I ask is that you would help me to be me, help me to serve you, help me to be significant and help me to make a difference. Please. Amen.


About wonderboy57

Let's make a start. I am a Christian but I guess that's pretty obvious. I am a gardener, builder by trade. I live in the Black country. I love 50s 60s 70s and 80s music. I play guitar and sing. I do open mic nights, I love growing veg and flowers, but I don't eat the flowers. Well I eat cauliflowers but that's not the same. If you need a good Gardener/bricklayer/landscaper and plasterer, not all in one go of course then contact me. My business is Dedicated In Gardens or D.I.G. Do you get it! Or do you dig it?
