Who is God – Day 20

Psalm 139:13

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

The Thought

The word used here for created is rarely used in the original Hebrew, and it is often translated as “brought forth”. This word suggests the next part of the birth process. It is the word used in Psalm 71:6 when David declares From birth I have relied on You; You brought me forth out of my mother’s womb.

God has a plan for every baby He brings forth from the womb of the mother. If you are alive today it is because God who created you gave you a safe birth and has a plan for your life.

At the beginning of time God was the creator, (Day 1) and He continues to create today. Maybe you know people who thought they could not have children. Maybe after trying for many years, they decided not to think about it any more, and then… surprise, surprise! A baby was conceived! We have one of those stories in our family, and we praise God for each of our children and grandchildren.

Sadly many babies don’t survive the 9 month gestation period. And many of us know someone close who has experienced a miscarriage, or not been able to conceive. These things are not unseen by our God who sees (Day 7).

The biggest problem in our day is the fallen world we live in, where Satan has too much influence, and can cause sickness in our bodies and in our souls.


Pray today for a miracle for anyone you know who believes they cannot have children.

Read Psalm 139 and be encouraged. Rejoice with those words of David, as you think of your own birth.

Pray for protection from Satan’s schemes for you and for those you love.

Pray too for those babies born in very difficult circumstances, that God would bless and care for them.
