We all want people to like us and approve of us. However, our desire for approval can truly be met only by receiving God’s acceptance and approval of us. God told Jeremiah that before He formed him in the womb of his mother, He knew him and approved of him as His chosen instrument. when God says He knows us, He means He really knows us. This is a knowing that leaves nothing out.

i am amazed that God chose me. I do not think I would have chose myself. But God’s tool chest has some interesting things in it. He works with what the world would reject as useless and throw away as trash.

Yes, God chooses and uses what the world would reject! Was Jeremiah perfect? Absolutely not! Jeremiah was fearful, and God had to correct him about fear of people. Jeremiah was afraid of being rejected and disapproved of. God correct him about speaking negatively and encouraged him to go forward and not give up.

Jeremiah :1-8

Be not afraid of them for I am with you to deliver you, says the Lord.
