How joyful the mother who finds herself with child! How precious the love that has formed the child. The Word tells us:
13 For You did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self knows right well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret [and] intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery].
16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.
Sometimes Lord life is formed in the womb and is seen as ‘a thing’. Your love that began this life is disregarded without thought. Other times women try and use the logic button ~ it’s not a convenient time for ME, it would interrupt MY life, I cannot afford another child. And Lord they go out and end the life You gifted to them, because they do not see it as a gift. They “know” better than You how to run their lives, and so they choose to murder the precious gift of life.
This child within has thoughts and physical feelings. What terror must fill it when their snugly warm home is invaded by brutality. Skin burned, body dismembered pulled painfully apart limb by limb. Or sometimes they do not die completely, but are left to die in a dark room, scared, abandoned. Their tiny cries go unheard by all but You Lord.
Forgiveness. Lord I ask forgiveness for the women who made the mistake of aborting a treasure of life and have repented. Speak to their hearts Lord, and bring consolation to them. Jesus died for them and His blood covers their souls too. Help them to forgive themselves Lord.
Father You are so good! 13 For You did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self knows right well.
In beautiful harmony You made my body to work. Only the greatness of an almighty God could ever form something as marvelous as the human body in all its intricate workings! You are truly an awesome God!!
Cherished. We are cherished by You Father! You formed us; You plan a great life for us. and You smile lovingly over us. Then we begin to grow. Choices are made by us and also by others who surround our life. The enemy hates us, because God loves us, so he tries his best to wreck God’s good plans for our life. Sometimes he succeeds. However, if we choose to go to/with God, we can regain the plan of God for our time on earth, and then spend eternity with Him in heaven. No matter what sin we commit, when we repent and go before our loving Father, accept His Son’s gift, He will welcome us with great joy! He will forget the sin completely.
Let us all remember this God of Love Whom we serve, and let us enjoy His benefits, and let us praise and worship Him as He so deserves!
