“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb” (Ps 139:13).
God has not entrusted the formation of life into anyone else’s hands. His mighty hands are tender, knitting with care the baby in a mother’s womb.
My wife Stacie and I prayed tonight for our baby, due this June. I was reminded of Psalm 139 and how God exercises intricate care and precision when he designs a person.
Our baby is in God’s hands, and it is a helpless feeling. We need to feel helpless, though, so that we remember to trust God. He is good, capable, loving, and faithful.
Wonder of wonders, there is a baby in Stacie’s womb who is being fearfully and wonderfully made (Ps 139:14).
