You know, until 2 years ago, I had not read this verse:
"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." Jeremiah 1:4-5
As we live this life, throughout our career, school, life, marriage and/or singleness, we are always trying to find or prove ourselves. But, take another look at that verse above. God chose us and set us apart before we were born. We didn't have to prove a thing. He loves us just as we are.
Who on this earth really loves us as we are?
And who really understands the gifts we have to offer the world?
The One who created us does!
There is an exact purpose for us. Half the fun is realizing this and the other half is fulfilling what we are meant to do. It doesn't matter what time of life you're in right now. When we're young, we're concerned with other matters and sometimes we lack wisdom in our decisions.
As we mature in our walk with God, we seek His Will for our lives which in turn provides us with peace and happiness. Walking forward without His direction is "downright crazy". In fact, it may be other people in our lives who believe they know our paths. If we listen and follow their advice, the result can be confusion.
No need for that. Chaos and confusion are not of God. His way is ordered.
Take some time to read thru the book of wisdom in the Old Testament of the Bible named "Proverbs". Pray before you read, asking God to reveal His truth to you.
