Wednesday Verse

With another grand baby arriving in a few short weeks, these verses come to mind. We used them on the birth announcement for our fifth child. Verses 13 and 16 always cause a sense of awe when I read them. God formed us in our mother’s womb, and He knows the days He has for us. 

Psalm 139:13-16 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

13 For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.

Wednesday Verse

It is autumn and the geese will be making their journey. To me it is amazing that these rather small creatures, can fly day after day for such long distances. They know where to find food, and the best places to rest their tired wings. God has designed them this way, and they are content with what they’ve been given.

I’m not comparing our lives to that of a water fowl. But it gives you pause to think when you read this verse.

Philippians 4:12-13 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

12 I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. 

13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
