    Moyà God knew you before you were put in the womb just as He knew Jacob whom He loved and Esau whom He hated and you have to live with some one to know those things. In Isaiah 45 vs 18 God created earth to be inhabited and in Job 38 vs 7 all souls sons and stars which are children rejoiced at earth's creation.

    The fear of God is the beginning of knowledge. I know I have to put my trust in God I do not fear what man can do to me. I Fear God I know he is my protector and I know he will make a way for me . I put my trust in God only this is a great chapter.

    Today I woke up without a plan for the day and someone from a group told me to read thus chapter. Reading this chapter really inspired me. While we were in the womb he knew the plans he had for us and his purpose for us. Whenever God calls us to do his work let us take up our responsibilities and forget about flesh. God is with us every step of the way. Never fear man nor live for man. God bless.

    It's an inspiring chapter meant to encourage those in tribulation and those who don't want to follow God's command of serving Him giving petty excuses.

    As with Isaiah,it's taking me quite awhile to get thru Jeremiah.I want to be careful and distinguish between what prophecies are fulfilled as opposed to those that are for today's time. It's bogging me down in my studies.Some commentaries seem to discount history in favor of most or all prophecies for today.This time through the prophets I don't want to just put things on the shelf. Lot of prayer
