“My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret [and] intricately and curiously wrought [as is embroidered with various colours] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery]”
Do you ever wonder if God really notices you? Does he really care?
The devil wants to trap you into thinking you are nothing, that you shouldn’t like yourself or be confident in Christ’s power in you. But don’t let him stop you from discovering your worth and your authority in Christ. It’s time to start realising how special you really are!
The truth is, God does care. The author of Psalm 139 seemed to struggle to put into words how incredibly intricate each of us is and how much God thinks of us. When you think of all the incredible complexities of the human body, it’s a mystery! Every single person on this planet is a work of art, a one-of-a-kind treasure!
Then verse 16 goes on to talk about the destiny God has for each of us. It says, “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 tend to expect so little in life. Meanwhile, the God of the universe wrote a book detailing all the incredible plans he has for you—plans you have the opportunity to choose. That’s how much he thinks of you! In fact, just look at what verse 17 says: “How precious and weighty also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!” (AMPC).
God thinks about you all the time, and his plans for you are all good. You are special, and he loves you so much!
