“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
All true ministries begin with a call from God.
Jeremiah’s call came in a specific word from God when he was young. The Lord said to him, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Because of our anointing through the finished work of Jesus, these words to Jeremiah are true of us too. Not only did God set us apart before we were born, He told us through Jesus to bring His good news to all nations (Matthew 28:19-20).
God knows where He wants each of us. But the only way we can figure that out our calling is to draw near to Him. And every time we opt out of spending time with God, we rob ourselves of an opportunity to live our lives more fully through our service to God.
Dear God, Thank You for calling me to serve You in some capacity. Help me to find my true purpose in life…my true calling…in order that I may live fully to your glory. Amen.
