“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
We serve a God who knows us. he had purpose for us before he formed us. until that purpose is fulfilled we will be existing. he is going to sustain us in this world by the things he knows will feed our spirit. our spirit doesn’t feed from anything. it is very picky. there are things that it rejects. like lies, blasphemy, pride etc. for us to grow in our purpose God prescribed a diet for our spirit just like our body need specific nourishment. he knows how every part of our being functions. what is needs and what it will rejects. he knows things that will suffocate our spirit. he is the master of our anatomy. all he wants for our bodies is things of his light. because if we are illuminated we will bring light in this world. Here is an amazing verse. it always gets me. to know that God was there in the very beginning of our formation. it says:
Psalm 139:13 :”For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” this verse tells me it is God who crafted our being. it also says in Acts 17 that we have our being in him. in him it all comes together. he’s got the specifications of our body and how it ought to function. it says in Psalm 139:13 that he knitted us together. without him we were scattered and he brought us into wholeness. he knows how everything has to come together. it says in John 15:5 :” I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing” we are intertwined with him. we cannot function without him. if he lives we live. we depend on him and that’s how he designed us.
lastly lets go to the book of Jeremiah again in chapter 1 verse 5. he says he knew us before we were born. he created us for a purpose. this God we serve is amazing. he wants to see that purpose into fruition. so he knitted us together so that everything can flow. we were created to give God the praise. to worship him and depend on him. let us go back to the drawing board and remember In God we have everything. we need not worry about anything but to just worship him like the birds that never worry about what they are going to eat. lets give ourselves back to God. he knows us, he knows where it aches and what’s wrong. which part to fix. we function better when we are in God.
