Daily Devotional for 16 July 2020 – Psalm 139v13-14

Psalm 139:13-14

Maybe you remember your mum, or aunt, or grandmother, knitting or sewing, taking care over each stitch to make a perfect garment.

That is the picture of these verses. God, in His sovereign care over our lives, “formed” us and “knitted” us together in our mother’s wombs (v13). Yes, He used the natural process of pregnancy that He created, but He worked through it to make you- personally.

You are well-made (“fearfully and wonderfully”, v14). Your incredibly complex body and organs and mind work because He is an awesome Creator.

So:

Remind yourself that He IS the Creator. The world tries to say that evolution and chance made us. No, only an awesome God can design people and the whole creation so amazingly.

Pray for our nation. God knits together in the womb. Life in the womb is life created by the Lord and that life should be protected.

Give thanks to the Lord for His creation of you.  Many people are not happy with the way they look. We can be depressed about our looks, our hair, our eyes, our shape. But the Lord has made all things well, including you. Ask Him to help you to be content and at peace with the way that He has made you.

He is worthy of worship and obedience. You exist because of Him. Stop and look at your fingers. Each fingerprint is unique to you. This is your God who has done this.  “Worthy are You, our Lord and God” (Revelation 4:11).  He is an amazing God.
