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
If you have ever felt forgotten or cast aside by the world, you're not alone.
Thankfully, we don’t need to seek worth or strive to be known by humanity, because there’s One who already does it perfectly. God knows you on such an intimate level, He knew you before you were even born! This is such an extraordinary truth, it’s almost incomprehensible for our human minds to grasp.
Because of his extravagant love for you, He thought of your life and planned out your destiny prior to your birth. Let that sink in for a moment. The Creator of the universe Himself personally thought of you and set you apart for His glory before conception.
He regards us so intimately and lives closer than the air we breathe or the clothes on our body. God didn’t need to wait until we were born to start loving us. He didn’t need to wait until we took our first breath to know every detail about us.
After all, we are His very workmanship and He crafted us with His very hands. God knew what your personality would be before you were born because He was the one who designed it!
When you feel forgotten or insignificant in this world, remember how God not only knows you, but personally set you apart for Him.
