Oh Lord my Lord How Majestic is Thy Name!

psalm 139 before you were borna With today’s technology we are able to “see” into the womb and see the development of the fetus. We can determine sex and the contours of the body.  We are awestruck when we read of surgeries that have been done to repair fetal conditions. But it is God alone who sees beyond conception to our very lives from the time we emerge from the birth canal. Stop and ponder the depths of these words: “Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.”[Psa 139:16]

Not only is God aware of our comings and goings, our motives and our future actions but even our words are known before we speak. How awestruck we should be when we stop to ponder these words God spoke to Jeremiah:  Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”[Jer 1:5] and again as the psalmist records: “Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written” [Ps 139]

This explains why when God says that he was willing to send his only beloved Son to die for us that we should be awestruck with the amount of love that was poured out upon us. We should pause and thank God that he is not willing any should perish but all come to repentance. God knows our comings and our goings because he can see into the heart. He is the  Lord of hosts, who judges righteously, Who tries the feelings and the heart, [Jer 11:20]   For He knows the secrets of the heart.[ Psa 44:21]  This is the Lord’s doing; It is marvelous in our eyes. [Psa 118:23]

Beloved consider that you are loved by God and have been loved by him even before your conception and why the truth of Jer 29:11 is so profound:  “For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.”
