“You saw who you created me to be before I became me!” Psalm 139:16 TPT
I have been in Psalm 139 this past week and was completely blown away by this verse. I have been reading it to myself aloud, and do you know when you read something over and over, and on like the tenth time something just jumps out at you. Well this was it for me.
So many people don’t know God, they go through their lives not knowing or wanting to know Him. Yet He was the one created them, and I cant help but feel sad for people who never acknowledge God. But for us Christians it is a wonderful journey to walk with God and get to know Him intimately.
Psalm 139 is one of those Psalms that expresses God’s joy and love for the human race. It is so full of intimate details such as “you formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside”, “wove them together in my mother’s womb” and “carefully, skilfully shaping me from nothing to something”. What a creator we have and what love He lavishes on us. Take a moment to think about these verses and how you fit into all this. God had us in His mind since time began, since He thought of you and me. The Bible says there’s a time for everything, a time to be born and a time to die, and when we are born and grow up we get the choice to choose God and know His love.
He has such a plan for your life and such a passion for you, He saw everything He created you to be before you became who you are. And He loves what He has created within you, He’s so proud of you, and like a loving father is pleased and filled with joy when He looks on you.
How amazing to think the God of the universe created each one of us uniquely and so intricately, and is with us on our journey to become everything He wants us to be. He is every where on our life journey, “Where could I go from your Spirit?” “Wherever I go, your hand will guide me”. I was struck by this -quite obvious- thought that God’s presence is everywhere, when I was at a park with my children. That He is everywhere and I am not alone. It was such a revelation for me that He is with me all the time. Because we can get side swept into the days and weeks and almost forget this truth, so take a moment and remember He is with you every where you go.
“Every single moment you are thinking of me! How precious and wonderful to consider that you cherish me constantly in your every thought!” I think that verse says it all doesn’t it? What love the father has for every one of us.
