Then the word of the Lord came to me,
saying: “Before I formed you in the
womb I knew you; Before you were
born I sanctified you; I ordained you a
prophet to the nations.”
— Jeremiah 1:4-5
I urge you to take time today and focus on what this verse is truly saying.
Before I formed you in the belly I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.
Today the House banned abortions after 20 weeks. There is quite a bit of controversy on this issue. I am hopeful that they are making a step in the right direction. It is sad to me that people need a law to make this decision. I know there are extreme cases. However, I also know of quite a few women who have been in extreme scenarios, for months, to have their situation miraculously (for there is no other word to describe it) change. Without the trust and hope in the Lord, these women may have given up and were richly blessed. Not every situation does change, but is it worth the risk of giving up before you know?
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 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.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
Psalm 139: 13-16
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
