In HIS Presence


Read: Jeremiah 1:1-10

Meditation verse:

“Then I said, “Behold, I come; in the scroll of the book, it is written of me” (Psalm 40:7).

Irrespective of the circumstances of your life, God thought about you, and purposely put you in your mother’s womb. Your conception was not an accident. Your birth was not a mistake. You purpose was determined before your arrival here; the number of your years was decided by the One who put you here. The story of your life has already been written by God; you are just living out the script. And there are several scriptures that highlight these facts.Psalm 139:13-17 says, “For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book, they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!”.

Jeremiah 1:5 says “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.

“Romans 8:28-30 says “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 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. Moreover, whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified”.

One important question that we need to ponder over is “am I living out the script written by God? The only way you can be certain that the script you are living is the one predetermined by Him is if you have surrendered your life to Jesus Christ as Your lord and Savior. Because if you have done so, you have the Holy Spirit in you, working in you to will and do according to God’s will for your life. Outside of this, chances are you are either living out your own script, the script dictated by the world or even that dictated by the devil. Remember you will give an account on the last day.

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
