BEFORE I FORMED YOU IN THE WOMB
I knew you before you were born. I dedicated you, I appointed you.
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before your were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you." Jeremiah protested these words of the Lord calling him to the prophetic life, saying that he was too young and did not know how to speak. God rejects Jeremiah's protestations and instructs him to have no fear because He, the Lord, is with Jeremiah.
 
We see frequently in the scriptures something special about the conceptions and/or births of individuals that have been given a very special responsibility in God's plan for His people. We see this with the birth of Moses and how he is spared the fate of most of the other Israelite baby boys. Instead of death, Moses is groomed in the Court of the Pharaoh for his special mission. We see this also in the conception of Samson who is destined to be a great champion of the people of God. Samuel becomes the priest chosen to anoint the first two Kings of Israel - Saul and David.
 
And then we have in the era of the New Testament, Mary Mother of God. Who was this Mary that she would be called God's Mother? By giving birth to Jesus the Son of God she became an exceptional mother. Consequently she is recognized as the Holy Mother of God. We celebrate the feast of Holy Mary Mother of God, on January 1st. This is a wonderful way to start the New Year.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder. We read this in the scripture today. I knew you before you were born. I dedicated you, I appointed you. Lord send me!
