THEME: YOU WERE PRE-DETERMINED
SCRIPTURE: Jeremiah 1:5 (KJV)“Before I formed thee in belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations”.
Enough of murmuring, enough of crying and cowing under the seat. None of us is a product of biological accidents.
Everyone born into this world is born with something that gives him an edge. You have a cutting-edge advantage. You may not have discovered it and you may not be working in it. But I want you to know that you have it.
God would have not allowed you to be born if there were nothing that He has already pre-determined before the foundation of the world concerning you. There is a pathway that He has ordained for you to walk through and that pathway is good. The book of Romans 8:29-30 says: “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.”
In the book of Jeremiah 29:11, God’s word declares: “I know the thoughts that I think towards you, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end”. God has a future that is planned and designed for you. The God who planned your future will ensure that it comes to pass. God told Jeremiah, “Before I formed you, I knew you…” Whilst Jeremiah was yet in his mother’s womb, God prepared him to be His mouthpiece. Jeremiah was looking at himself and was wondering if it was him God was talking about. But God said to him, you are going to accomplish everything I have said. You will speak for me! You will throw it down! You will plant! You will destroy. You will establish my purpose and you will fulfill my mandate.
Come what may, you will fulfill everything that God has spoken about you in Jesus name.
