Jeremiah 1:5 “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
Although this particular verse was referring to the prophet Jeremiah, the general idea is for all of us. Before you were even conceived in the womb, He already thought of you. As a matter of fact, He was already thinking about you not just before you were conceived, but way before He created the world! Before your parents even knew you existed He already made plans for your life. He determined your destiny and the reason for your existence. So He put the abilities and giftings in you so you could fulfill them. Everything you would ever need for your life to be lived according to His plan were already prepared beforehand. And He determined that those plans will be lived out by the power of the Holy Spirit that would be at work in you, through your identity as being in Christ.
If you want to discover what your destiny is, what your life purpose is, the answer can only be found by discovering who you are IN Christ. Living out His plan is the only way you can find peace and a true sense of fulfillment and contentment. If all of that is still a mystery to you, ask Him to reveal it to you. He wants you to know it. It’s a prayer you can be 100% sure He will answer!
“Abba, I ask You to show me Your plan for my life. Reveal to me the purpose for which I was born. Open my eyes to the destiny You have prepared for me to live. There are gifts of grace You placed in me to accomplish them, reveal them to me. Give me a hunger to keep seeking Your face, Your will and Your Word so that I discover my identity in You. I want to always live in Your peace, in Your joy and in Your love. I ask in the Name of Jesus, amen!”
