Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you . . . (Jeremiah 1:5 – The Message)
God spoke these words to the prophet Jeremiah centuries ago, but they have timeless implications for each one of us.
No matter what you think about yourself or what others think about you – what God thinks about you is the most important thing.
Even though God spoke these words specifically to Jeremiah, they apply to our lives as well. Notice the important principles that come out of this verse.
- God made you – “I shaped you in the womb . . .”
- God knows you – “I knew all about you . . .”
- God chose you – “I had holy plans for you . . .”
No matter what you are going through today and even if you feel you aren’t worth much – never forget that God loves you and values you.
