Wednesday In The Word: Psalm 139

I love Psalm 139, I have memorized most of it and said it over and over to myself on many occasions. I have found this one passage of scripture to be encouraging at times and comforting at others. Yesterday this scripture took deeper hold of my heart and began to develop even deeper meaning in my mind.

Yesterday, I sat in a doctor's office in total awe and amazement as my daughter's inmost being was projected up on a screen to determine the health and sex of her babies. That is right, not just one baby but two. What we saw would make the hardest heart melt. We actually witnessed two eight ounce little people interact with one another. First, baby A kicked baby B. Then baby B sat on the head of baby A and baby A tried to bite baby B. I kid you not, this is the truth.

What we saw brings this scripture into complete focus:

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 16-18

From the rooftop:

The babies I saw are already known by God because He created them.

God already knows their personalities as we are just beginning to know their personalities.

These babies are not hidden (neither are we) but fully known by God.

These babies days are already planned by their maker and so are all of ours.

We can turn to the ONE that knows us completely because HE ALONE knows what we completely need.

I want to thank my daughter and her husband for allowing me the privilege of being a witness to this miracle. I understand so much more about God and His Word because of what I saw.

It is so easy to forget in the middle of busy schedules and the chaos of the world, where we actually came from and who is in complete control. But the One that had each one of us in His mind before we were born is still watching over each one of us until we ultimately go to be with Him. May we all find comfort and strength in that fact.

I Love You,

Oh, I'm so glad you wrote on this chapter. I was just thinking about Psalm 139 this morning. Maybe because my 3 year old is quoting vs. 14 for AWANA tonight. Thanks!
