28. Designed By God
Verse Of The Day: May 28
Jeremiah 1:5 NLT
““I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.””
When my kids were born I held them in my arms and just marvelled at the kindness of God. I had been waiting so long to meet them but, each time I realised that God knew exactly who they were.
Science has come a long way. When we first saw our kids in their mothers tummy, it was a black and white, scratchy image of an ultra sound. Theee days it's a 4D colour image and a short clip of them moving around inside the womb.
We have friends that we're not able to conceive children because of a genetic malfunction. So they tried conceiving through IVF and modified the gene that created the problem and now have two beautiful children.
And God says He knew us before He formed us the womb. This means that before we ever took on a human body in this life, we were known by God and formed for His glory. I don't know what our bodies will look like in heaven but you are not your body - you are much more. Your soul and your spirit is the real you and is entwined in a physical body.
The greatest thing you can do in this life is to discover the reason God made you. God made you special, with all kids of gifts and abilities. It's time to live your life for the praise of His glory.
Do you understand how and why God has made you and what He wants you to do in this life?
God, You made me and You knew me before I was even born. You know exactly how I should live my life so I pray You will guide me and help me to live the way You designed me to live. Amen.
