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 – Psalm 119:114

Psalm 119:114 You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.

Daily D – Jonah 4:2-3

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”

Daily D – Psalm 115:14-15

Psalm 115:14, 15 May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Daily D – Joel 2:12-13

Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”

Daily D – Hosea 14:8-9

Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
