Psalm 139:13

Psalm 139:13 “For you created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.”

The first half of this verse is written in a few different ways, in other translations, that may be helpful in understanding.

“You created my inmost being”-NIV

“You formed the way I think and feel”-ERV

“For thou hast possessed my reins”-KJV

“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body” -NLT

All of these translations help us to better understand how God first created each of us in our mother’s womb. God’s importance in our lives is evident from the moment we began to be formed. He has created us down to the smallest cell in our body. He knows me better than anyone could possibly know me, even better than I know myself and yet He still loves me enough to send His son to die for me. 

For anyone who doubts whether or not they should be here, on this earth, this is a good reminder that God has a purpose for each of us and created us the way He wants us to be in order to grow into the person He knows we can be.

“You knit me together in my mother’s womb”

When you think about knitting and how each knot must be carefully put together by the crafter in order to create a design that will not only hold together, but can also be used to help to keep others warm; there is no doubt that when God created each person He had a plan for them. His plan for each of us is ultimately to know Him, love Him, enjoy Him and glorify Him. If we spend time reading His word, praying and seeking to worship Him in all we do, He will use the intricate traits He has given to each of us to help us become the child of His that He created us to be. He gave each of us unique gifts that can be used to glorify Him.  We often see the potential in others, but don’t always realize the potential within ourselves. 

Our God has so many possibilities that He will reveal to us once we submit our lives to Him. “Jesus looked at them and said, “With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” Matt. 19:26  We worship a God who can do all things. Only a God who knows us so well can know all that we are capable of. All He asks is that we give up our selfish ways and follow Him with our mind, body and soul.

I will leave you with this last verse, “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.” Eph. 3:20

He wants you to reach your potential and submit your life to Him today!
