FAMILY PLANEphesians 1:11
A bored Christopher Wren was skimming stones across a river when, to his astonishment, he looked up to see each stone had magically fallen into place to erect a cathedral. Lo, St. Paul’s was born! Michelangelo was mindlessly vandalising a slab of marble when a passerby pointed out its uncanny resemblance to King David. Amazing! Neil Armstrong had fallen asleep at the wheel. Imagine his surprise when he woke up on the bright side of the moon!
No, none of these historic events happened by chance; they were all the result of the finest planning, careful detail and endurance. Should it surprise us then that the architect, artist and pioneer of the universe should has thought very, very carefully about His creation? And you – you - are a part of that.
Psalm 139 argues a pretty good case for God having you in His mind’s eye long before your dad winked at your mum. Maybe you’ve been made to feel like an accident, for any number of reasons. It’s nothing to God. It doesn’t even enter His view of you. Whatever circumstances have made you felt that way, God is always more than able to use anything to achieve His plan. He brought you into being because He loves you. God didn’t cut and paste you into His creation – you were always in His heart.
Read Psalm 139 out loud. If you feel insecure about who you are in God’s plan, talk to someone older and wiser about it.
