Focus Verses For Today: Jeremiah 1:4-5a
Today our journey through the Book of Jeremiah begins! Jeremiah is known as the weeping prophet because God appointed him to inform Judah of impending judgment.
Take a few moments to ask God to share His true meaning of today’s journey through Jeremiah 1-6 with you. Now read Jeremiah 1-6. Let’s journey!
Jeremiah 1-6: Jeremiah is called by God to be the prophet that informs the tribes of Judah and Benjamin of the impending judgment upon them. God told Jeremiah that they would try to harm him, but to not waiver because God was protecting him. Jeremiah delivered God’s message to the people of Judah and Benjamin. The people were told that God judged them because they had forsaken the true God to worship god’s made of wood and stone. God judged the people because they choose a life devoted to sin. God judged the people because they chose to live an immoral life, citing adultery. God judged them because the people said God abandoned them. God judged them because they refused to confess their sin to Him. God judged the people because they refused to repent of their sins. The people of Judah and Benjamin found more pleasure in sin than they found in serving God their Creator. (Jeremiah1:1-6:30)
Our focus verses for today:
4The word of the Lord came to me, saying,
5“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart;…
(Jeremiah 1:4-5a, NIV)
Have you ever considered how special you are? No one is ordinary. Everyone is extraordinary! Did you know that before you were born that God formed you in your mother’s womb? Did you? Our focus verse tells us that. It tells us that God had a purpose for Jeremiah’s life before he was born. Do you realize that you have a purpose that was assigned to you before you left the womb? Do you! The question is: will you pursue that purpose? You don’t have to. You don’t! Take a moment; close your eyes; bring yourself to a calm relaxed state and think this thought; say it out loud if you like, “God, the creator of all things, formed me in my mothers womb.” Meditate on it for a while. Is it sinking in? God formed you! Can you comprehend that? What is God’s purpose for your life?
