Today’s Promise

May 30, 2024

I Knew You Before You Were Born

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.
Jeremiah 1:5

If you have ever had to deal with insecurity or felt like no one cares, today’s promise is just for you.

God Knows You

Let me remind you today that God knows you. He knows all about you. In fact, there is nothing hidden from Him. He knows the good, the bad, and everything in between. Jesus said God knows you so well that He knows how many hairs are on your head. For us older folks, He even knows how many hairs were once on our heads. 

Before you ever took your first breath, God knew you. He knew how tall or short you would be, the color of your eyes, hair, and skin, plus a thousand other details. You are not a genetic accident; you were created by God the Father. He is the one who formed you in your mother’s womb. Even before you were born, God knew you and was working in your life. 

God Formed You

He not only knew you but formed you for His purpose. He told Jeremiah that before he was even born, He had appointed Him as a prophet. God would use Jeremiah to bring a special message to the Children of God. He appointed Jeremiah as His prophet long before He was born.

God Has a Purpose for You

God has appointed you for a divine purpose as well. There are some things that only you can do. He has uniquely created you to accomplish His purpose in the world. He has a special plan for your life. He calls you to be a light in your world.

God’s plan for your life is good. That plan began before you were born and won’t be completed until you see Him face to face.

God knows and loves you beyond your comprehension. He sees the wonderful person He created. He sees all the potential that He created in you.

Look at that promise once again.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations. – Jeremiah 1:5

Make these confessions.

  •  God knew me before I was born.
  •  He formed me with His own hands.
  •  God has appointed me for a special purpose.
  •  I am known and loved by God.

In Jesus’ Name,

You are not a genetic accident but a person formed by the loving hand of God. He made you for His purpose and called you to fulfill that purpose in Him.

There is no question our schools are under attack. It seems every day, we hear of gun violence, bullying, and other dangers at our schools. Every day, our students face all sorts of temptations and challenges. That’s why I am proud to partner with the School Prayer Challenge. This little app on your phone allows you to join others in your community, praying for protection around our schools. The app lists every school in the United States. You can create a list of schools to pray for and then see how many others are praying for your schools. The goal of the School Prayer Challenge is to have people praying for every school in our nation. You can download the app for free in your app store or go to Take the challenge to pray for schools across our country.

What does it mean to you knowing God knew and formed you before you were born? (Share your thoughts in the comment section below.)
