Set Apart

Dear Precious Ladies

Special greetings! We thank God for giving us the grace to finish the month of January 2017 alive and well. Just as we are all different, the journey has not been the same but His love has kept us. His love will see us though the brand new month of February.

On the 12th and on the 27th of January I had the privilege of holding newly born baby boys. I visited them a day after they were born and this was an amazing experience. I was reminded about how we begin life as tiny helpless babies heavily dependent on our mums or on someone else to feed us for survival. Although these boys looked vulnerable, God has already got great plans for them and a great destiny awaits them. In them are seeds of future husbands, professionals, fathers, uncles, pastors, doctors the list is endless. They were born in the same month and country but their destinies are not the same. Each one is unique and born for a specific purpose to specific parents and I found this intriguing. God formed them in their mothers’ wombs and he knew them before he even placed them in those specific wombs. Before the pregnancy test was ever done the Lord had already completed the plan and a place for them on earth. This is what Jeremiah meant in Jeremiah 1:5:
“Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you: A prophet to the nations , that’s what I had in mind for you.”(MSG)
“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.” (NIV)

According to the oxford dictionary the word form means; a style, design and arrangement. It also means the following: to be established; a particular way in which a thing exists; bring together; to create; inaugurate; initiate and launch. My sisters, it is God who formed us. We were already in God`s mind before our parents ever met. His very hands designed us, arranged us, styled us, structured us and placed us in our mothers' wombs. He knows us with all our weaknesses and strengths. He knows both our spiritual and geographical locations and He has set us apart so we may fulfil a certain role on earth and in our spheres of influence. God has a specific plan for us for this month of February and the rest of the year. Despite how the month of January was, we are still set apart for Him and He loves us. May we all embrace who we are, embrace His plans for us and walk in them for the rest of the year. May we be fruitful, multiply and take dominion where God has placed us.

Much love,

Pastor Fatima
