The Knew You

The Knew You — Our self esteem is also improperly connected to our abilities. I don’t care how empowering and encouraging it sounds, when you tell your baby, “You can be whatever you choose to be,” you are not telling her the truth. When the reality hits them, they’re disappointed AND they’re still in search of the truth — that you can’t be “anything you want to be.” Your only bet is to be everything God wants you to be, which is better than anything you could ever be!

Your worth to GOD was calculated before you were even conceived. You were birthed in the mind of GOD before you were birthed from your mother’s womb. You were a pre-meditated masterpiece before the world began. You are a product of GOD’s creativity and a reflection of His love.

And while our situation on earth may change, our looks my change, our jobs may change, our abilities may change — GOD is our Daddy and that is something that cannot change and, more importantly, we cannot lose.

GOD knew Jeremiah and GOD knew you, too. Translation: He CHOSE you and that is where our worth can be and should be found. Brothers and sisters, it’s time to live in the KNEW you. In order to do that effectively, we need to have an ACCURATE VIEW OF THE KNEW YOU.

I walked towards the lectern as my pastor commented on my suit and bow tie. The congregation carried a curious vibe throughout the sanctuary. They weren’t used to seeing me. I just joined Antioch last June. I’d been helping/hiding out in the media control room on Sundays – learning the cameras and sound board. Being an unfamiliar face and arriving at the lectern, located stage right of the altar, increased the crowds curiosity.


It was the longest three minutes ever as I informed my newly acquired church family that God had called me to the preaching ministry. My parents stood up, flashing their cameras and smiles. Someone yelped like my pug used to do when I accidentally stepped on his tail. I assumed it was a shout of approval.

I asked for their prayers and support as I began this new journey – a venture I should have started almost 20 years prior…but that’s another post. 

The following week, I met with my pastor who informed me that my first sermon would be in approximately 30 days. I was scheduled to bring the Word on 26 January 2014 at our 11am service.

Yeah, he did that.
