An Open Book

Psalm 139:14-17

14I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

   15My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

   16Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

   17How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

Good day readers:

It’s great to be behind the keyboard to write another installment of my blog.  When we last shared together, I had mentioned to you all that it was brought to my attention that I was adopted.  Well, after much shock and acceptance, I have come to the conclusion and also to the realization that, no matter what the outcome, I still belong to God.  I am His child above all else.  Over the weekend, I happened upon this scripture that you see above (God will ALWAYS send His word to you in some form or another) while listening to Moody Radio; a Christian radio station.  It happened after 6am yesterday morning.  This passage speaks to me on so many levels and is as loud as can be.

What this word is saying to me is that I can be confident and praise my God that I am fearfully, and wonderfully made.  In other words, God made me fearful and God made me wonderful.  This means that He made me to be in fear and reverence of Him and that everything that is made by God is, in fact, wonderful.  His works are so marvelous that my soul knows them “right” well.  That word right means, “exactly; precisely” .

Before I was even thought of, my own substance was not hidden from God.  Verse 15 says that my substance was not hidden from God even though I may have been conceived in secret.  That means, simply, that even though I may have been conceived in secret (most children should be conceived behind closed doors), God was there and, because He is God, he knew exactly what was happening and, therefore, had a plan for my life even though circumstances could have and should have deemed otherwise.  God saw the “imperfect” situation and had the “perfect” plan. 

With all of that, I can jump to Hebrews 12 which says that God is the Author and Finisher of my Faith.  I was listening to Dr. Carolyn Miller’s radio show a few months back.  Her guest was Eddie Reeves.  One of the things that he said that stuck with me is that and author knows the beginning, the middle and the end.  Well, since God knows the beginning of my story, and also knows the middle, He certainly knows what the end is going to be.  That’s a great thing!!!

Until next time…
