The first part of Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee”.  God is speaking to the prophet Jeremiah but the same sentiment applies to us.  God knew each one of us before we were formed and before we were born He set each one of us apart for a specific purpose.

    There are many people today feeling lonely and unloved.  Each one of us must remember that God knew us before we were even formed.  More than that He even had a purpose for our lives.  If we can keep that thought alive in our hearts we should never be depressed.  We are not ‘things’ that He just threw together on a whim.  We are people, creations that were made by and came from the thoughts of the Almighty God.  He created us because He loves us and gave each one of us a specific purpose.  When we understand that we will know how important we are and our main concern will become pleasing Him and living our lives in a way that will glorify Him.
