The Lord Foreordained Jeremiah to Be a Prophet

Jeremiah 1:5

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

President James E. Faust said:

“Any man or woman who enjoys the Master’s touch is like potter’s clay in His hands. More important than acquiring fame or fortune is being what God wants us to be. Before we came to this earth, we may have been fashioned to do some small good in this life that no one else can do. The Lord said to Jeremiah, ‘Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations’ (Jeremiah 1:5). If God has a work for those with many talents, I believe He also has an important work for those of us who have few.”
