Psalm 139:13-18 is a very powerful section of Scripture for me. While the first part of Psalm 139 talks about how there is nowhere you can hide from his presence and how he know are very thoughts and everything we will do before we do it, this section of Psalm 139 focuses on how created each one of us on purpose for a purpose.
Created for a Purpose
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 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 the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
We can be Confident
My confidence can be totally dependent on the fact that God created me with purpose. From the color of my hair to the things I am passionate about to my skills and abilities, everything little thing about me God designed it that way for a purpose with love. He did the same for you and every other person on the planet.
God doesn’t want us to live doubting ourselves, but to be confident in who he created us to be. He doesn’t want us to be arrogant either, but to walk confidently, but humbly, in the knowledge that He created us on purpose for a purpose.
Just knowing that he loves me so much that he chose to create me and all my little quirks, fills me with such joy that there isn’t room to contain it when I really think about it.
