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.

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
