Forethought

Standard

Devotion:  Jeremiah 1:4-10, Acts 2:22-28

You are not an afterthought in God’s mind.  Before God created the world, He knew every detail about you. He fore-planned you. He created you to be born to your mom and dad; to have your brothers and sisters, to have your strengths and your weaknesses, for such a time as this.  He knew every detail about you; as He formed you in your mother’s womb, even before He created the world.  That’s because He is an all-knowing God. You are no accident, and nothing that happens to you is an accident. 

David said, “I foresaw the LORD always before my face, for He is at my right hand that I may not be shaken.”  His thoughts of you are as the grains of the sand.  You are always on His mind. His forethoughts of you are higher than you can begin to imagine.

Romans 8:29 tells us, “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of HIs Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.”   He knew the day you would pray to receive Christ.  No detail escapes the Lord our God.

If you have a personal relationship with Christ, you can have His mind, know His heart, hear His voice.  The next time your enemy tries to tell you, “God is not listening to you.  He doesn’t even know you exist.”  You declare the above verses to him and tell him to “Get behind you!”  You; my friend, are ever before the throne room of God, being talked about and prayed for.  Never ever believe the lie; that you are an afterthought.

In Motion:

Thank God today for His foreknowledge of every detail in your life.
