February 18 – Today’s thought – God’s Idea

Good Afternoon

Jeremiah 1:4-5
Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 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.

God planned and packed you on purpose for his purpose.
Heaven’s custom design.
At a moment before moments existed,
the sovereign Star Maker resolved,
“I will make ________________>”
Your name goes in the blank.
The he continued with,
“And I will make him/her ______________,
____________ and _______________ and
_______________and ______________.”
Fill those blanks with your characteristics.
Insightful
Clever
Detail oriented
Restless
And since you are God’s idea,
you are a good idea.
What God said about Jeremiah,
he said about you-
“Before I made you in your mother’s womb,
I chose you.
Before you were born,
I set you apart for a special work.”
Set apart for a special work.

Care for the Common Life, Max Lucado

Accept God’s idea . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

I AM THAT I AM

God is His own equivalent, and God needs nothing but Himself to achieve the great purposes on which He has set His heart.

I AM THAT I AM  Exodus 3:14

Whatever life may bring to you,
“God” will ring true to you;
Star in your sky—
Food in your store—
Staff in your hand—
Friend by your side—
Light on your path—
Joy in your heart—
In your ears music—
In your mouth songs.
Yes, rapid as your race may run,
And scorching as may shine your sun,
And bitter as may blow your blast,
And lonely as your lot be cast—
Whatever life may bring to you,
“God” will aye ring true to you.
Charles. Herbert

Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD. Jeremiah 23:23
