This tells us that our lives are no mistake. Our parents may not had planned us, but God did, He was not surprised by our birth.
I was born two months early. Before I was conceived by my parents, I was already conceived in God’s mind. It was not a change or fate. We are alive because God wanted to create you and me; Look what the Bible has to say here, “The LORD will perfect that which concerned me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever; forsake not the works of thine own hands” (Psalm 139:8). He will complete what he has begun. He will complete what he has begun. He will not begin to interpose in my behalf, and then abandon me. He will not encourage me, and then cast me off. God chose our race, the color of our skin, hair, and every other feature. “My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts if the earth (Psalm 139:15). What God is saying is that knew me inside and out , He knows every bone in our bodies.
Do you know who God made you? God also decided when you would be born and how you would live. When I was born I was two months early. But in God’s plans that was the day I was to be born. “Thine eyes did see my subject God plans and I was did see my substance, yet being imperfect; and in thy books all my members were written , which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them” (Psalm 139:16).
God also planned where we would be born and where we would live for his purpose your race and nationality are no accident. I could had been born in England or I could have be born on the Queen Mary. A man without a country, but I was born in the good old West Virginia. My Aunt Margaret said I was born under a Cabbage leaf on the farm. God planned it all for a purpose.
Next week we will look more into this.
