Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you. Jeremiah 1:5
It’s mind-boggling to imagine what God was doing before the creation of the universe. Since He is from “everlasting to everlasting” (Psalm 90:2), there was some kind of infinity before time began. But only God Himself can understand that. Yet, we do have a few hints about it from the Bible. We know the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit enjoyed rich fellowship, for Jesus prayed about the glory and love He shared with the Father before the world began (John 17:5, 24).
Ephesians 1:4 says that God chose us in Christ “before the foundation of the world.” And Matthew 25:34 says that God has prepared a kingdom for us “from the foundation of the world.”
God also knew you and planned your life in advance, so you could live with purpose and fulfillment. Before He formed you in the womb, He knew you and set you apart to serve Him. The apostle Paul said the same thing in Galatians 1:15.
Jesus has a lifetime of purpose stored up for you. Don’t waste a moment of it, but seek His guidance and go forward into His perfect will.
It should not surprise us that God was planning His kingdom before He created the universe. Lita Cosner
