The Impulse To Soar

“One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.”
– Helen Keller

The LORD said to Jeremiah in verse 5 of chapter 1:

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

Our God and Creator has appointed each of us for a purpose.  He knew you before you were even born and has bestowed to you certain unique traits and gifts that you might carry out such purpose.  God created the eagle’s majestic wings that he may ascend into the heavens and the great whale’s might that he should navigate the deep.

God’s Spirit bears witness with our own, whispering to us that we are His children, each created in His image and gifted for what He has fashioned us to do.

What has the Spirit inspired within you?
