13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139)
Psalm 139 is one of my favorite Psalms. It clearly tells me that God knows all about me. He knew me even before my mother and father met. When I really take time to think on that, I can’t help but to be in awe of how amazing my God is! The scripture above tells me that He knit me together in my mother’s womb. The word knit means to unite, bond, fuse or even to mend. To me, that means He took the time to consider how He wanted me to look physically; not just at birth but as I would grow older. He took the time to consider how He wanted me to sound when I would speak. He knew what He wanted my smile to look like on my face. He decided the shape of my eyes and what color they would be. He took time to consider my height and how I would walk. He took the time to make me just the way He wanted me to be!
Psalm 139 states He created my inmost being! Not only did He knit me together in the physical, He also took the time to consider my behavior, my thoughts, my dreams and my desires! He went so far as to put me together to know how I would deal with a broken heart, neglect, abandonment and abuse. Even before He allowed me to be birthed, God reached down into the depths of my soul and He created me!
He created me in such a fashion that I cannot hide from Him. I cannot hide from His love even when it is hard for me to love myself. I cannot hide from His grace and His mercy, even when I mess up along the way. I cannot hide from His comfort, when the tears are streaming down my face. I cannot hide from Him when I am angry or disappointed, because He is the One who is always there to give me peace. He knows all about me!
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139)
Dear Lord, I thank You for taking the time to create me the way You want me to be. I know that I am still a work in progress, but you already know what the finished product of me will be. I am thankful that You were mindful of me and you have given me this life with all the joys and heartaches to make me stronger in You. I am thankful that you are always with me and that you know my thoughts even before I think them. Father, I am thankful that I cannot hide from you because where would I be without you on my side! Thank you Dear Lord, for letting me know that I am fearfully and wonderfully made! You know this because You know all about me! You created me to be your daughter! In Jesus, name I am forever grateful!
