Jeremiah 1:5

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.
Jeremiah 1:5

When God's call to Jeremiah came, he was about 17 years old. Before Jeremiah was even born, God had already set him apart for this special calling in his life. In other words, Jeremiah already had a job and a calling for his life before submitting his resume or filling out an application. Before he was even formed, God knew him and knew that he would be a prophet to the nations. It's amazing to think that God knew me before I was even formed in the womb. He knew all about who I was, my personality, the things I would fear the most, and the things I would enjoy the most.

God knows the beginning to the end and has a plan for each and every one of us. Long before that "twinkle in the eye" our parents had when they were thinking about children, God already had a plan for our lives. He has called us specifically for His purpose and set us apart for what He has called us to. Each and every one of us has a special plan and a purpose. We must then learn to hear God's voice and trust His Word so that we can walk in what He has already prepared beforehand.

This serves as a reminder for when my wife and I have children. It gives us great assurance in that whatever happens, God already has a plan for their lives. All we need to do is seek Him first in all that we do. Trust that God already knew them before they were even thought of by us, and has already set them apart for a specific purpose. God already knows what is in store so that I can rest and not have to be up all night worrying about being a good father. All we have to do as parents is raise them in the ways of the Lord to the best of our abilities. We should teach them all that we know about Jesus and trust that God will do a work in their lives.
