Words from the Heart for Friday October 30th, 2020
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 139:16 (NIV)
All My Days
The shortest day of the year this year – winter solstice – will be December 21. The winter solstice is due to Earth’s tilt, which is also responsible for our seasons (it has nothing to do with our distance from the sun; in fact, we are closest to the sun in January). The winter solstice marks the time of year in the northern hemisphere where Earth is tilted at the most extreme angle. But just because it’s the darkest day of the year, it’s not the coldest.
God has a plan for your life. He’s had that plan long before you were born. He was watching over you while you were being knit together in your mother’s womb, and since your birth He has been working out His plan for your life. Psalm 139:16 says this: “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” From the moment of conception, God has had His eye on you. He saw you as you developed in your mother’s womb. Your birth was a part of that plan, but God has so much more for you. It is beyond our imagination how God can keep track of every single human being on the planet – the current world population is 7.6 billion. But He does. He knows where each one is, and He knows them by name. He knows you by name. And He wants to work out His plan for your life. There is no better place than right in the centre of God’s will for your life. Allow Him to work out His plan for you.
These have been words from the heart.
