Psalm 139:13-14, 16

You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well… Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.
Psalm 139:13-14, 16

You are not a mistake. God knew you from the very beginning. At just the right time, He created you and skillfully weaved you together in your mother's womb. Then He brought you forth, breathed life into you, and destined you for His glory. And it is a wonderful thing. The angels in heaven rejoice over you, for you are fearfully and wonderfully made.

You shall live on the earth for a predetermined number of days. Whether you lived just a few hours, a few days, or over 90 years—it is all God's infinite wisdom that determines the exact number of days you will live for His purposes and His glory. This is the rock-solid foundation upon which our life is built. It is all God's amazing plan.

But what if I'm just not feeling it right now, or I don't like it. What if I resent this amazing plan sometimes? What about my cancer, my children, my handicap…? There are no easy answers, but this psalm offers you hope, if you believe and embrace it. It offers you assurance that God is working His plan in you for His purposes. "I am the Vine," Jesus said in John 15:1, "and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me… that bears fruit, He prunes that it may bear more fruit." Pain is part of the plan.
