“O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD”. Jeremiah 22:29 KJV
Chosen to Blossom and Bloom
Father God I pray and ask for the strength, courage, knowledge* and wisdom that I might grow from a budding, unopened flower, into a blossom (the state of flowering; to develop in a pleasing or promising way) of maturity and righteousness, able to send forth pollinations, God’s Anointed Word, seeding the ground I walk, whereas “Your Truth” will bloom (the mass of flowers on a single plant) in the hearts of man. Provide me with the holy gardeners and guardians of Your Word who are cultivators, pulling up weeds of misconception and UN truths so that my ground is fertile and of goodness. In the Name of Jesus I petition this prayer. Amen

Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. (Psalms 139:16)
A Study of Jeremiah 1:4-5
As prophets we are called:
And the Lord said to Moses, “Write these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.” (Exodus 34:27).
1. To reveal the nature and attributes of God to men (Deuteronomy 5:4-10)
2. Make known the laws of God (Exodus 20:1-17)
3. To foretell future events as God has willed (Jeremiah 30:1-3)
4. To warn them of Divine judgment upon sin, both personal and national.(Jeremiah 36:30-31)
5. To call the people back to obedience to God’s laws (2 Chronicles 24:19)
6. To exhort the people to sincerity in worship (Jeremiah 7:1-11)
7. To foretell the coming of the Messiah, the Savior. (Isaiah9:6)
8. To record the history of God’s dealings with men, (Deuteronomy 31:9-13)
9. To record the Word of God in the Holy Scriptures.( Exodus 17:14, Exodus 34:27)
“Write this as a memorial in the book, and rehearse it in Joshua’s hearing; for I will surely wipe out the remembrance of Amalek from under the heavens.” (Exodus 17:14).
"See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant."(Jeremiah1:10)
Over the Nations and over the Kingdoms
“Genesis chapter 10 describes how the present world population was derived from Noah's three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth, and their wives (three family groups). Verse 32 states, "From these the nations spread out over the earth after the flood." Additional references are given in 1 Chronicles chapter 1. Genesis 10 exactly names 16 grandsons of Noah, and then we are provided further details of the Babel dispersion (Genesis 11) where their descendants fanned out over the earth and established the various nations of the ancient world”. (GENEALOGY OF MANKIND)
Acts 17:26 states, "From one man (or one blood) He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live," a corroboration of Genesis 10.
“As family groups became isolated by language barriers, environmental factors allowed particular traits already present to be expressed more frequently. Noah's family suggests a "racially mixed" population with biological potential for variation. The Biblical viewpoint is that there is not a black race, white race, yellow race, etc. Instead, there are three distinct families or characteristics of man that make up the oldest Table of Nations in existence, which is a completely authentic statement of how the present world population originated and spread after the flood, as recorded in Genesis 10 of the Bible (a historical document itself). Here we learn the true divisions of mankind, indicating how the present population of the world came to be. The listing of Noah's descendants is more theological than hereditary, so we must understand that Noah's descendants existed because of his righteousness”. (GENEALOGY OF MANKIND)
Summation: Since the population of man is scattered over the world (Acts 17:26) we who are chosen (Jeremiah 1:4-5) must do as instructed in 2 Chronicles 24:19.
