Memorise: Before I formed thee in the 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; Jeremiah 1:5

Devotional Reading: Jeremiah 1:4-19

From our memory verse of today, God said He knew you even before you were formed in your mother’s womb. He had decided your physical look, how clever you will be and your spiritual standing, before you were conceived. Your complexion and body size had even been determined, that is why I am amused when I see people bleaching their skin. The one who designed you to be black knows why you are black. He has decided the kind of hair that is going to be on your head and the colour of your eyes.

No man, or science, has your blueprint. Only God does. God knew you before anyone could think of bringing you into this world, and designed you for a purpose. Daniel.2:21 says “And He changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding”

There was a young man who went to school and could not make it, finally, he ended up in a technical school and learnt how to fly a plane. A certain man of God bought an airplane and needed a pilot. This young man applied for the job and got it. He was quite satisfied. Then one day, the man of God had just finished preaching, and those that wanted to be prayed for were so many that he couldn’t do it alone, so he beckoned on his pilot to assist him. The young man assited him and miracles began to happen. Today, that young pilot is now a worldwide evangelist, whenever he shares the story, he would say, if he had been very brilliant, he would have ended up being a university professor, but God had a plan for him. Today, he is bringing blessings to millions around the world. He started as a pilot but today he is a global evangelist.

Don’t ever condemn your being, or compare yourself with another, rather be thankful daily to God because He knew why He made you who you are, He didn’t make a mistake. If God wanted you to have a broad nose and pink lips He would have made it so. If He wanted you to be man and not a woman, He would have made you so. So, when you see somebody much stronger, beautiful, taller, shorter than yourself, just glorify God. It is often said that it is not lack of food that has made a cat smaller than a dog, it was God who limited the size of the cat for a reason. Whatever you are today and wherever you are today, know that God has a purpose for you. All you need to do is ask the Father to make known unto you His purpose and His plan for your life and walk according to His plan and purpose for you.

I pray that God will help you appreciate who He has made you be and not complain about what you feel you have not become.

Prayer point: Father, please help me fulfil my purpose in life and accomplish my destiny in Jesus name.

Key Dose: Remember that Godliness with contentment is great gain. Be content!
