Today's Verse/Thought: Unalterable Fact 1-He Knows Me and Has a Purpose
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 1:5
Whether you know God or not you have likely sensed some sort of destiny or purpose for your life. We were created that way and God's great desire is that some day we discover His perfect plan for us.
Not knowing His plan for our life leaves us to following the plans outlined by the world around us, or our own inclinations. This can often lead to a sense of frustration. Nothing is as important as knowing and living out our Creator's purpose.
What God spoke to Jeremiah in the verse above is something that He wants to say to all of us. In Jeremiah's case He was appointing him as a prophet. He has a plan for each one of us too.
If you are having difficulty discovering God's plan for your life-you are not alone. Most people have a difficult time here. As we have already mentioned, getting close to God is the key to everything. Go to Him in prayer everyday and ask Him to specifically reveal His plan for your life. I can't underscore enough the need to be specific. Be persistent and then sit back and watch for His response.
It might be a person He sends with a subtle message or idea. It could be an opportunity or circumstance that He sends your way. Look at everything that comes along-chance meetings-phone appointments-trips to the market, etc. as possible scenarios where God might be communicating something to you.
