YOU WERE NOT AN ACCIDENT. I WAS NOT AN ACCIDENT

PSALMS 139:13-16 (NLT)

13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.

My mother was 17 years old when she conceived me. It was November of her senior year of high school. She was rebelling toward her parents and got involved with a 20 year old young man. Although my conception was a result of an accident, God was making my inner parts and knitting me together in my mother’s womb.

Whether you were planned, a surprise, or the result of an accident, God made your delicate inner parts. He knit you together while you were in your mother’s womb.

14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your  workmanship is marvelous-how well I know it.

Lord, help me to believe and agree with this verse. Reveal to me the truth of your marvelous workmanship in me. I confess that I have believed the lies from my enemy, that my past negates your truth. I believe. Help my unbelief!

15  You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.

Regardless of the circumstances behind our conception, God was watching over us. He wasn’t hiding in shame, disappointment, anger, or rejection. He was watching, overseeing, ordering our forming.

16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

I was not an accident to God. My life was recorded before birth. That life included God. He has never, nor will he ever, forsake me or reject me. His plans always lead to Him.
