Jeremiah 1:5  “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.” (NLT)

When did God get to know you? Before you knew you, before you knew anything, before you were capable of knowing. Before all things, God knew you, loved you, and set a purpose for your life. If potential is the unfulfilled possibility of a life, is not purpose the fact of capability in the process of coming into realization?

God’s purpose and provision for Jeremiah is quite like his purpose and provision for you and me. 

1. God appointed Jeremiah a prophet to the nations (verses 5, 6).
2. God warned Jeremiah to avoid the fear of people (verses 7, 8). 
3. God promised to protect Jeremiah as he served his purpose (verse 8).
4. God provided the words to say (verses 9, 10).
5. God gave Jeremiah insight and foresight (verses 11-16).
6. God prepared Jeremiah for action (verse 17).
7. God strengthened Jeremiah for the opposition he would face (verse 18).
8. God promised success (verse 19). 
9. God promised his presence through it all to the end of it all (verse 19). 

This is God’s nature and character. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. What he did for Jeremiah, he will do for you and me. 

Today is a good day to begin turning potential into realization. 

Today is a good day to become who we might have been. 

Today is a good day to become all God dreamed we would be. 

I will step forward into the special future God has for me.

Our Father, take me where I am and lead me where I need to go. I trust you to guide, to provide, to protect, and to be my ever-present help. Give me ears to hear what you say. Give me a hunger and thirst for more of you. Place your thoughts in my mind, your words in my mouth, your compassion in my heart, your kindness in my hands, your direction in my feet. I am completely yours. Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
