Sweet Freedom - Week of March 19

Join New York Times bestselling author Sarah Palin as she explores the bedrock of the Bible for answers to the pressing issues of our times.


Week 12

Created For a Purpose

 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Luke 1:41

John the Baptist leapt in his mother’s womb, and I’m sure Luke—a physician—purposefully referred to him as a “baby,” not a “clump of tissue” that leapt. “A person’s a person no matter how small”; a baby’s a baby even in utero. Jeremiah 1:5 tells us even more about God’s awareness of precious unborn children: “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.” Later in Jeremiah we read, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (Jer. 29:11). When that sinks in, we realize God’s omnipotence. We understand the truth that He created us for purpose; promising plans for good and not harm. Our Father does love every child and has plans for each. He has from the beginning.
