created, knitted, and ordained

By June 14, 2011General

I’ve been prepping for a message I will preach at Valley View Christian Church on July 3.  The theme is taken from Psalm 139:13-16 …

“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.”

What a wonderful passage about the providence and provision of God!

As I’ve thought about being created, knitted, and ordained by God, it’s been a good time to reflect and assess.  We have been fashioned by God — physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  Our lives bear the fingerprints of a master designer.  It’s amazing to think that the God who created the heavens and the horizon actually took an interest in my blue eyes.  But he did.

More than that, he took an interest in what I would do with my life.
