You were born with purpose and destiny in you. Often we think the circumstances around our birth determine the meaningfulness of our lives. That is not the case. Our purpose is tied to God’s plans. We are never disqualified because of where we come from. The first thing we received was our purpose when God breathed us into existence.
Your purpose preceded any mistakes you may have made. So, you can’t lose your purpose. Jeremiah realized this as he tried to convince God he had chosen the wrong person. God made it plain to Jeremiah that He knew his purpose when Jeremiah was in his mother’s womb.
The same is true for you. You have a created, unique purpose from God. Claim it. Be proud of it. Walk in it. Then you will truly be fulfilled. Jeremiah was called to do some great things for God. He would never have done them if he didn’t realize that being a prophet was what he was created to do from the foundations of the earth. You should have the same conviction about your purpose.
