“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” – Psalms 139:6, NIV).
Times as these when many people are stuck at home due to lockdown are certainly full of uncertainties. In fact, many may wonder how we got here. A dangerous disease from end to end that has brought down all planes and put businesses on hold is certainly no one could have imagined.
Yet as we see in our verse today our creation here and all that goes on is not by accident. To imagine that what has happened all came by chance would be to deny there is a God of creation, who fore knew everything, and He too was taken by surprise.
Yet long before we were here our God knew all the days of our lives and what was to pass, including our mission. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you and before you were born and consecrated you; I pointed you a prophet to the nation” (Jer 1:5)
The knowledge that nothing has come by chance should give us confidence that no matter the tremors we are experiencing there are but for a season. It would be one thing if ours was a walk through the dark, grappling here and there, without anyone watching over us. But yet that is not with us believers. “Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you of marvellous and wondrous things that you could never figure out of your own” (Jer 33:3)
Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray that whatever anxiety I might have over the times I may not worry for you knew long before I was here what was to come and you will gently see me through!
