He Knows Me (Jeremiah 1:4-9)Pastor Jared Shumate, August 5, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
This morning we were blessed to have Pastor Jared Shumate with us today in his first official Sunday as Pastor! As we are getting to know him and his family better, he reminded us today that God already knows all about us.
In the book of Jeremiah we see that God calls Jeremiah to be a prophet. But Jeremiah gives an excuse; he is but a child and cannot speak. But God already knew all about Jeremiah. Not only did he know all about Jeremiah, but He knows all about us!
Think about that for a moment...The God of the universe, the Creator or everything...He Knows Me...

4Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 5Before 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. 6Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child. 7But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. 8Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD. 9Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. (KJV)
