Jeremiah 1:4–5 (ESV): "4 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations."
No one is born without purpose! From the moment of conception, God is busy at work forming and fashioning every child for a specific purpose. Some struggle to find it, while others step into it early in life. Some completely reject it, but one thing is for sure, everyone has a purpose.
Jeremiah's story is not unique in this way. God has put a purpose in every human heart. We all have a specific calling and it's our job to discover it. How did it happen for Jeremiah? It would appear he was in a place of seeking God. King Josiah had called for reformation in Judah. It was during this time that Jeremiah heard from the Lord. That is the only secret when it comes to discovering God's purpose for your life. You must set yourself apart from the world and its idols and truly seek God on the matter of His design and purpose. Devotion always leads to clarity of calling!
