TOPIC: Not Taken By Surprise
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Jeremiah 1:5
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Your arrival on the earth did not take God by surprise.
The Scripture makes it clear that our God is a God of plans and purposes. Our God does not act randomly. He is a God who acts deliberately.
In Jeremiah 29:11, God says,
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
One thing I want you to know about God, in relation to your purpose on earth is: God is not confused about man’s purpose and journey on the earth.
God is not confused about what to do with your life.
In Jeremiah 1:5, He says, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee;
Beloved, your arrival on the earth did not take God by surprise; He consciously planned and deliberately orchestrated it.
You may have had people who had visited you, and you were surprised because they didn’t inform you of their coming. There could be children who were born without the plan of their parents. Their parents did not plan them, and so they came by surprise. But God is not surprised about the birth of such children. God knew them before they were born.
Beloved, God is not surprised about your existence on earth. You would not have arrived on the earth if you were not needed. Your life on earth does not take God by surprise. Your arrival did not take God by surprise. He planned and programmed your arrival. He prepared for you.
My counsel is, make up your mind to live purposefully on earth.
Remember This: Your arrival on the earth did not take God by surprise.
Convince yourself and believe that God knew you before you were born.
Make up your mind to live purposefully.
Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to live a meaningful and purposeful life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

Your invitation into the earth by God’s Act of creation was preceded by His Preparation for your arrival. You won’t be here if He didn’t prepare for your arrival.
The full purpose of your existence shall continually unfold for you in this season in Jesus’ Name.
