You’ve been called by God
“I knew you…I sanctified you…I ordained you.” Jer 1:5 NKJV God told Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you…sanctified you [set you apart]…I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Observe: (1) God knew you. The word knew means “to have intimate knowledge of.” When your delicate fingers were just a web, before your heartbeat registered on the monitor or the doctor could predict your gender, God knew all about you. “You…scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe” (Ps 139:16 TLB). God knew what you were born to be, and provided everything you’d need to fulfill your life’s purpose. (2) God sanctified you [set you apart]. He fixed it so you wouldn’t fit in, and designed you so you couldn’t rest any place He didn’t want you to be. He intended you to wander and feel lost until you found Him. That’s why you’re uncomfortable in certain places and around certain people. It doesn’t matter how hard you try, you won’t fit in because God has set you apart for Himself. (3) God ordained you. Men may ordain, but only God can foreordain. Stop worrying about who does or doesn’t recognize your gifts. John Mason says, “Each person has been custom-made by God the Creator. Each of us has a unique and personal call on our lives…to be our own selves and not copies of other people.” God told Jeremiah, “Go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you” (Jer 1:7-8 NLT). So the word for you today is: You’ve been called by God.

This is very powerful, today 28/05/2015, Praise GOD for his kindness, This message is amazing. I'm speechless, today I had to provide and cater all the meals for more than 100 people, just by myself, and I just constantly pray almost 5 to 6times within an hour, God please give me the strength to do this, and the courage. After I had prepared all the meals, All night, 6am, I pray please make the people happy about the food , I have done what I got told to do, therefore, please make them like my cooking, and I hope they will enjoy. At the end, it was a success, with God, everything is possible.
