‘Whom he foreknew!

To foreknow something is to know it before it was formed. Only the Lord can foreknow us as He made us.

Jeremiah 1: 5

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

The Lord has plans for us, and His plans for us were predetermined before He made us. In other words, He knows what we have the potential to do and what graces we have, don’t let anybody else define you.

Lets look at the above scripture. Before l formed thee in the belly, l knew you, and before thou came out l sanctified and ordained you to be a prophet to the nations. As only the Lord knows the foundation of our lives, its only Him we should sought for direction and His own plans for our lives. Forget what people are saying, the one who formed you and preknew you knows better.

Do you know that God has great plans for your life? But l am not even born again, l don’t know the Lord. Receive the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart and make Him Lord of your life (please follow this link for steps to take to know the Lord http://peacewithgod.jesus.net/). But life is tough? That’s why you need the Lord.

Lets see what the Lord has in stock for us:

Romans 8: 28-29
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Do you see the desired destination? To be conformed to the image of His Son. Brethren are supposed to look alike. Jesus Christ is our big brother.

This is the desired end, we are to become more like Jesus every day. The Lord that formed us, knows what He has invested in us. He foreknew us, and He knows better. Don’t give up on yourself, you have great potential in the Lord and He has great plans for you.
