Yesterday, we came to a better understanding that we are created in the Image of God and in His Likeness. Today, in the light of Psalm 139 and Jeremiah 1:5, we will continue to ponder and meditate
on “Who I am in Christ“.
Psalm 139 addressed the LORD (In Hebrew is YAHWEH). The Psalmist calls out and establishes a salutation and an understanding of what he knows God to be. He even flabbergasted on the omnipresence of God even in the most secret of places (v13-16) and glorified God for His massive knowledge of the future. In another word, Psalm 139 tells us that God has known us even before we were formed in our mother’s womb, our whereabouts, and our future. As it is written in Jeremiah 1:15,
“I chose you before I formed you in the womb;
I set you apart before you were born.
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” (HCSB)
God has chosen us even before we were formed in our mother’s womb. God has a special plan and purpose for us. Furthermore, as the LORD appointed Prophet Jeremiah for a specific ministry, so does the LORD appointed us for a specific purpose in our lives.
In conclusion, the Creator God made me and knew me before I was born:-
- God made me
- God knew me while I was still in the womb
- God knows me better than I know myself.
He has a special plan for us, it is because He is our Creator and the One who knit us in our mother’s womb. Now, with great confidence, we can say that “I am known”. God bless you.
