“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” – Jeremiah 1:5
Who really knows you and the thoughts of your heart and the secret things you intentionally keep hidden from others? Do you share your innermost thoughts with anyone?
Some may say it’s their spouse or a best friend. Yet, I suggest that even though you may think you know yourself well and that others see the real you, no one knows you more completely than the One who created you.
God says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.” It only makes sense that to know and understand ourselves, we need a personal relationship with the One who knows us best.
The good news is that God knows us best, and loves us more than anyone else. He knows our failings and our shortcomings and loves us anyway. Through Jesus Christ, we have the privilege of having a personal relationship with our Creator. That relationship begins when we accept God’s love through faith. It’s a relationship that lasts forever and that’s mighty good news.
