THE WORD FOR TODAY Jeremiah 1-3
Jeremiah 1-3 (Click to read Today’s Word) Truth for Today
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you: I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Have you ever heard someone say, “Before you were even a twinkle in your Momma’s eye...?” I have plenty of times. Most of the time it was said to put me in my place and help me understand life a little better.
But think with me for a moment...before you were even a twinkle in your Momma’s eye...God had a plan, purpose and direction for your life. WOW!!! I know that it’s big...it’s very difficult to get our arms around this truth and understand. It’s really beyond my comprehension to think that God wanted me to be sitting here writing this email for you...before I was even born. But, I believe that is exactly what He wanted for my life and I praise God that I am here sharing this word with you.
It’s easy to think that FATE plays a key role in our...but I don’t believe that. I believe that God has a plan for every single one of us. Those who understand His plan are those who like Jeremiah are submissive to the will and work of God in their life.
Honestly, if I had my druthers (Mississippi word here.) I would still be a mechanic in Clarksdale, MS. But God had a different idea so here I am typing this email to encourage each of us be submissive to what He has ordained for us.
Hold on...I know someone may say, “How do I know what God has ordained for me?” Check your relationship with HIM and then get back with me on that discussion. It would be a great discussion!!!
Father, may we submit to your will and your purpose for our life, to walk where you want us to walk, to work how you want us to work and live in obedience to YOU...In Jesus Name...AMEN!!!
