TREM Daily Devotional 2 February 2019 by Dr Mike Okonkwo
Topic: God has You in Mind
“Before I made you in your mother’s womb, I chose you. Before you were born, I set you apart for a special work. I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 NCV
The God we serve is intentional. He is a God of plan, purpose, design and objectivity. Everything He does is intentional. That tells you right away that you are not an accident of birth. If He allowed you to be born, I can assure you that you have a part to play in His agenda on earth. You are not just passing through; there is something He put in you that your generation needs. There is something special about you. It came with your birth. When you add the God advantage to it, there is nothing that you cannot achieve in life.
“Before I formed you, I knew you”. So if He didn’t want you to be formed, He would not form you. He knew you while you were in your mother’s womb. He concluded everything about you before you were born. There is nothing about you that He doesn’t know. It depends on what you see. All God is waiting for, is for you to believe and agree with Him. When you do, then He will hasten His Word to perform it. He will ensure that what He has said comes to pass. Romans 8:29-30 is one of my favourite scriptures: 29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, 30 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. (Romans 8:29-30)
You are among those predestinated. You are among those He knew, those He called, those He justified, and those He also glorified. That means that your story will not end in shame. He said He has glorified you. It is already done, completed and packaged. So whatever the devil is trying to do is a waste of time because you will get there.
