Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you. The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day. (Psalm 139:13-16, The Message)
As I read through this Psalm this morning, I couldn’t help but thank God for my life. He created me with a special plan in mind. I do not always understand why things don’t go as I want, but He knows. We have to trust in Him, and He will do a great work in us.
Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for shaping me into who I am today. I know I make mistakes but You are so merciful and I am so grateful. Thank you for leading my life the way you have and for designing a future that I couldn’t even fathom. In Jesus Name, Amen.
