“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.” Jeremiah 1:5

From the moment you were born you’ve been a treasure to Him. You are a special creation of the Maker of Heaven and Earth.

You were made by God. 

Imagine, then, the value of something made with love and care by God Himself. The majestic and sovereign God of all creation is your creator. Just like Jeremiah you were formed by God Himself and known to him. Nothing will ever bring greater value to your life than this.

God has made you for a purpose. 

Just as Jeremiah was “set apart” and “appointed” by God to be a prophet, God made you for a purpose that is important to Him. A purpose is important not because of what it is but because of who assigns it.

You may say, “But I do small things in quiet places. No one really cares about what I do.” If in the eyes of the world you feel small, take heart. You are important to Him. But if you feel large take no glory in it because the honors of the world fade. A purpose appointed by God endures—forever!

Faithfulness is your key to a life of significance. 

Since God has made you for a purpose, your key to significance is faithfulness. Do what He has set you apart to do without regard to anything else. 

If you are faithful to God your life will be filled with His grace and glory. Not only that, you will also be filled with joy because the greatest joy comes from serving Him. 

Father,
Thank you for carefully knitting me in my mother’s womb. Thank you for the gift of my life and thank you for the gift of faith. Thank you for the purpose that you have carefully and lovingly set apart for me. Holy Spirit, I ask you to fill my heart, my mind, and soul with your grace. Help me to seek You in all that I do. Help me to live out the purpose that you have appointed to me. All this I ask in Jesus’ name, amen.
