Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in that secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained (determined, ordered, anointed) for me where written in your book before one of them came to be.
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared (to make ready) in advance (beforehand) for us to do.
This is my thought.
God ‘spoke’ creation into existence (Gen. 1:3,6,9,14,20,24,26). So God must have spoken words over you and I before we were even born. Beautiful words of how much He loves you and I. And spoke about the things He wants to accomplish through us. However the enemy does everything in his power to fill our minds with many different things that creates confusion and stress. We get lost (sort of speak) and forget who we are. The enemy knows that if we truly knew what we are capable of doing (with God’s help) there would be no stopping how much we can impact our world.
It’s a battle, I know, to hold tight to these verses along with others. We need to guard our minds (Philippians 4:7).
We need to remember God can do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).
At times when I pray the Lord’s prayer found in Matthew 6:9-13, I pray verse 10 this way: Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth (as you said it) in heaven. In other words I am praying those words that God spoke over me – would be, the words God spoke over my husband- would be, the words God spoke over my children – would be. Bottom line- THE WORDS GOD SPOKE OVER EVERY PERSON THAT NOW WALKS ON THIS EARTH – WOULD BE.
I know beyond a shadow of doubt God has spoken awesome things over our lives, even before the day we were born. I pray that you would seek God and doing so you will remember those words.
Be blessed my friends.
