God’s Plans for You Started Before You Were Born

“Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you” (Jeremiah 1:5a The Message).

If you want to live a life of purpose and meaning, maximize the strengths God has given you. Find ways to do more of what you do well and less of what you don’t.

One reason for this is because God created you to be unique, and he wired you for a unique purpose. The Bible says, “Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you” (Jeremiah 1:5a The Message).

No matter what, you can rest in the truth that God has holy plans for you. He shaped you in advance for those plans. God’s plans for your life didn’t start the moment you were born. Those plans started before your birth, when the Bible says he shaped you in your mother’s womb.

But here’s the best part. The way God shaped you reveals how he wants to use you. In other words, if you want to know what you’re supposed to do with your life, you’ve got to look intently and deeply at how God wired you.

Your SHAPE — the spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality, and experiences God gave you — reveals your purpose. Set aside some time to discover your purpose, based on how God shaped you.

  • What do you think about the truth that God had a purpose for you before he placed you in your mother’s womb? How might that change the way you live?
