YOU WERE CREATED FOR VISION.
BEFORE YOU WERE BORN I SANCTIFIED YOU:
Notice that God used the word “before” a number of times in this particular verse. He is trying to tell us that we should not make any mistake thinking we are the ones so smart and that is why we have accomplished what we have accomplished. No! Everything you are today has been long accomplished before you came into this world. You only need to align yourself with that vision.
Before you were born I sanctified you. You were not even born yet when God sanctified you. One of the interpretations of the word sanctification is, separated for a sacred service or mission. So God actually had each and every one of us already sanctified, separated, dedicated, for a particular vision, ever before we were born. What we only need therefore is to simply align ourselves with the original intent in the heart of the Father.
Friends we are created for vision even before we appeared in the womb of our mothers, God knew us. Before we were born, God separated us for vision. Amazing!
I ORDAINED YOU AS A PROPHET TO THE NATIONS:
This is so profound. God is so specific about the purpose and calling of every individual. In the case of Jeremiah, he was ordained to be a prophet to the nations. The result is obvious to us today, because in all nations of the earth, people still study the writings of Jeremiah.
Dear friends, your calling and vision in life has been ordained before you were ever born into this world. You were created for a vision. It is totally abnormal to live a life without vision. It is a life of misery, a life of loss and a life of woes. You have your specific vision from the throne of God. That is why you were sent here to carry out that preordained vision from God.
One of the greatest tasks of anyone on the earth is to first discover their vision for life.
“I think that the greatest gift God ever gave man is not the gift of sight but the gift of vision,” – Dr. Myles Munroe
The word vision comes from seeing. That is where we take the word visual from. It is the same root word for visibility. By vision, we mean seeing just like our eyes see. We have a term like the vision of the eye. So how does this all contribute to destiny? What is its relationship to purpose? What is the correlation between this vision and Jeremiah chapter one?
