All that know me well will agree with the fact that I love to read. But, not all that know how much I enjoy reading know that I go to the end of the book to see the outcome before I read the book! OOOPs!
“You [God] saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed” (Psalm 139:16, NLT)
God saw you and me before we were even born. He has recorded everyday of our life journey. He even knows about our MOMENTS! God has even recorded our Ah moments. Therefore, I want to go to the end of the Book for the finale. I have come to understand that the end of the book only gives assurances of the outcome but doesn’t alter the story as it has been told in the book.
Josh McDowell writes; some things you probably never knew about yourself:
1)The first moment-the very first nanosecond-of your life determined whether you would be a boy or girl.
2) In the first hours of your life, your eye color, hair color, and other features were decided.
3)When your heart began beating, you were so small you would have fit on your mother or dad’s fingernail-with room to spare!
4)Before your mother even knew you were growing inside of her, you could hear and could even perform full flips inside her womb!
5)About seven months before you were born, your fingers and toes looked much like they did at birth, though you were only two inches long!
6)You started to grown hair in your fourth month of life (before birth) and may have even sucked your thumb!
7)In the final two months before your birth, your weigh tripled, you began sleeping and waking, and you used four of your fives senses: sight, sound, taste and touch-all before your mother went into labor.
God was at work in our lives before we were born. He was knitting us together in our mother’s womb. He loved us and had a special plan for our lives even then. He still does when we allow Him the opportunity to continue the plan He recorded of our lives. He continues throughout our life to work with us through the power of the Holy Spirit to enable us to live our life story as written.
Ephesians 2, says, “God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
I hope you remember that YOU and all others are the artwork of God. Yes, you are His masterpiece. I hope you will read THE BOOK. It is good to read the end to know your outcome as well as your beginning!
