Jeremiah 1:5 – The word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I firmed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
I’ve just come back from Hillsong Conference in London. This was my fourth year attending/serving and every time it changes and brings light to my world even more. Bradley and I were serving the Oxford Youth. We had a substantial number of youth going, along with some incredible youth leaders to serve alongside us.
The most amazing part for me this year was watching how our youth changed over the course of the three day conference. They started the conference on Wednesday night, worshiping God with their phones in their hands, to Friday night where they had totally surrendered their lives to God, praising Him with both hands high in the air. It was so beautiful to witness. God works wonders, right?
I loved that our youth weren’t just faces in a big crowd. Yes, there were thousands of people attending. But God still spoke to them and He still spoke to me. He encountered everyone in His own, beautiful way. This verse is a good reminder of how He works. He has set each and every one of us apart. He has an appointment for every single person here on Earth, including you.
You’re not just another face in the crowd. You’re not just another ordinary person. You are a child of God. The God who set you apart before you were born.
