I asked myself what does the Psalmist declare to the Lord as he
reflects on his life?
You made all the delicate, inner parts of
You knit them together in my mother's womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully
It is amazing to think about.
Your workmanship is marvelous---and how well I know it
You were there while I was being formed in
You saw me before I was born.
8. You scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe.
9. Everyday was recorded in your book!
10. How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me
11. I can't even count how many times a day your thoughts turn toward
12. And when I waken in the morning, you are still thinking of me!
I asked myself the significance of the
'You made all the delicate, inner parts of
The Psalmist realized that he is a result of God's intervention and that
God is the Author of His life and has sole copyright to him. He does not
give anyone else credit for the work of God in His life. There is no
plagiarism here. Since God has the copyright to him, he
places his confidence in God alone. This means the Psalmist does not
believe in macro-evolution being the cause of his existence but God.
This is evidenced by points 2-6:
YOU KNIT THEM TOGETHER in my mother's womb.
Thank YOU for MAKING ME so wonderfully
It [YOUR CREATION OF MY BODY] is amazing to think about.
YOUR WORKMANSHIP is marvelous---and how well I know it
You were there while I WAS BEING FORMED in
I asked myself what is the significance of
The Psalmist realizes and acknowledges that it is the Lord's Hand that
was present in every aspect of KNITTING, MAKING, WORKMANSHIP, and
FORMATION of his body. It did not just end with God knitting all the
delicate inner parts of his body but the psalmist was made WONDERFULLY
COMPLEX! It is so wonderfully complex that it is AMAZING to even think
about it. Being amazed, does not stop the Psalmist's praises because the
Psalmist reflects on God's AMAZING WORKMANSHIP in his life. Then, the
Psalmist brings it back to KNITTING again but this time uses a
powerful declaration: I WAS BEING FORMED in utter seclusion WHILE YOU
WERE THERE. This is so profound because the Psalmist knows that God's
Hand and presence existed in the conception of him in his mother's womb
but also through the months of development while the Psalmist was being
FORMED. Wow! Thank you Jesus!
I asked myself what does the Psalmist reflect on
in v.16-18 regarding God's role in his life?
You SAW ME before I was born.
8. You SCHEDULED each day of my life before I began to breathe.
9. In your Book, you RECORDED everyday of my life !
10. How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are THINKING about me
11. I can't even count how many times a day your THOUGHTS TURN toward
12. And when I waken in the morning, you are STILL THINKING of me!
I asked myself the significance of the Psalmist's
reflection regarding God's role?
The Psalmist praises the Lord knowing God SAW him before he was
born but God did not stop there. Instead, the Psalmist is so happy that
God SCHEDULED each day of his life before he even began to breathe. That
is amazing to know that the Psalmist left his life in the Lord's Helping
Hands. But, the Psalmist does not stop there but is so happy that his
life has been RECORDED in God's Book. If God SAW him, SCHEDULED his
life, and RECORDED his life, it feels so precious to the Psalmist
that God is THINKING about him constantly. It does not end there
but the Psalmist expresses that it is countless how many times God's
THOUGHTS turn towards him. And finally, he acknowledges when he wakens
in the morning, God still has not forgotten him but is STILL THINKING
about him to show God's Hand and love for him in his life. Thank you
I asked myself what are the implications for my
The same God who the Psalmist reflected upon and praised is the same God
who is there for me. This is a birthday
Psalm for me to praise the Lord for all He has done for me from the
moment of my conception, to birth, to all these years of my life and
what He will continue to do
for me. More than that I can proclaim His promises for my life knowing
He who created me and loves me, will also be there with me always and
care for me. He sees me, has scheduled my life, recorded my life, thinks
about me constantly as His thoughts turn always towards me. And, then He
continues to still think about me no matter how busy He is. Thank you
Jesus so much I am so well cared for. I praise the Lord Jesus that I can
celebrate my birthday because He is the One that made me and allowed me to have life in
my mother's womb and outside of the womb giving me a birthday each year
that He has ordained my life for me. It is awesome to be cared for by
the Lord to whom I am so special and His thoughts always turn towards
me. I can never measure the thoughts of the Lord towards me for they
would outnumber the grains of sand.
It was so awesome yesterday when Edwin, Marie, Caleb, and
Hannah came to our place and surprised me for my birthday.
I can celebrate my birthday because the Lord Jesus
loves me so much and gave it to me. It is because of the birthday's
the Lord Jesus has blessed me with, helping me being born after
being developed in my loving mommy's womb, I grew up with His help
as He thinks about me constantly. Seven years ago, I
had the blessing of being married to my most wonderful, darling wife
Chandraleela who is so prayerful, loving, understanding, and supportive
of my life these past 7 years of marriage. Not only that but the Lord
has blessed us with our precious daughters Esther who was born on the
Lord's Day of Sunday, September 30, 2012 and Evangeline was born on
our weekly marriage anniversary on Friday, May 29, 2015.
When we found out that my leela was pregnant with Esther and Evangeline,
we prayed Psalm 139:13-18 every single day of Esther and
Evangeline's development in her mother's
womb and I continueto pray Psalm 139:13-18 every single day of their development knowing the power of God's Word and how much Psalm
139:13-18 applied to Esther, Evangeline and each of us. I have prayed Psalm 139 for
my own life and Chandra's life reflecting on it. Thank you Jesus for
thinking about us constantly. I continue to pray it for my wife,
daughters, and myself.
I ask you now dear friend, who cares for your
B.I.R.T.H.D.A.Y in life?
Dear friend, Psalm 139 is for you and He who created you loves you
so much and cares for you more than words can say. Before you were born,
Jesus knew you and knit you together perfectly in your mother's womb and
saw your unformed body. He took care of you in the womb to give you life
and scheduled the days of your life in His book which is so exciting to
know! You do not have to live alone. Jesus will send people your way to
care for you. Yes, He will!
My wife Leela and I have experienced the number of people the Lord Jesus
sent our way to show care for us, especially for our daughters Esther
and Evangeline on their
1st birthday showering them with amazing gifts and their time.
But more than that, Jesus cares for your
birthday in life. Remember,
the Psalmist praises
the Lord knowing God SAW him before he was born but God did not stop
there. Instead, the Psalmist is so happy that God SCHEDULED each day of
his life before he even began to breathe. That is amazing to know that
the Psalmist left his life in the Lord's Helping Hands. But, the
Psalmist does not stop there but is so happy that his life has been
RECORDED in God's Book. If God SAW him, SCHEDULED his life, and
RECORDED his life, it feels so precious to the Psalmist that God is
THINKING about him constantly. It does not end there but the
Psalmist expresses that it is countless how many times God's THOUGHTS
turn towards him. And finally, he acknowledges when he wakens in the
morning, God still has not forgotten him but is STILL THINKING about him
to show God's Hand and love for him in his life. Thank you Jesus! Jesus
wants to do the same for you and will do for you!!!
What is precious is the love of Christ towards
you and me. So, that you and I can have victorious birthdays each year, Jesus went to the cross to pay the price
you could not pay to ransom you from sin's destructive bondage. That is
how much Jesus loves you. He loves you so much that He died on that
cross shedding His precious blood and came back to life on the third day
to save. Jesus cares for your birthday in life. Jesus wants to deliver
you. Every moment of your life is important to the Lord so never feel
that your life is not significant because for the One who created you,
your life is so significant that if you were the only person living,
Jesus would have still died for you to give you new life. That is
exciting to know so come as you are!
It does not matter what your age is for the God of
the Universe created you and has the copyright to your life that will
never expire. That means, whether you are O months or 100+ etc, He will love you and
reach you because that is the character of God to love. God is love and
in Him is life for our being. Yes, friend
God loves you so much that He sent His only
begotten Son to die for you so that whosoever believeth in Him shall not
perish but have Everlasting Life. That is
exciting to know.
I know it is exciting for me to know that Psalm
139:13-18 can be read as my birthday Psalm claiming the promises of God
knowing His thoughts turn towards you and me. Yes, they do friend!
might be your birthday too and if you are reading this, take the Word of the
Lord to heart so you don't drift away on your own.
If it is not your
physical birthday, it can be your born-again birthday. You can come to
Jesus as you are no matter what you have done or where you have been. He
loves you as you are and paid the price to set you free. In the Lord,
alone you can be happy and find your joy in Him. I am amazed to read
Psalm 139 and know how much the Lord cares for me and He cares for you
If you don't know Jesus as your Lord and
Personal Savior, let today be your born-again birthday by giving your
life to the Lord so the angels in Heaven can celebrate it with you And
if you do know Him as your Lord and Personal Savior, you have started
another year of your life with the One who gives life. Yes, friend as
you celebrate your birthday or your born-again birthday, turn to the
Word of God for your direction and celebration in life. He wants to lead
you and me. Yes, He does! That is exciting to know!

B.I.R.T.H.D.A.Y in life?"
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you so much for all you send into our lives to
care for us on our birthday. Most of all thank you for creating all the
delicate parts of my body and knitting me together in my mother's womb.
Thank you that I am so wonderfully and fearfully made. Thank you that
your works are wonderfully complex and how well I know it. It is amazing
to think about your workmanship in my life. You were there while I was
being formed in utter seclusion. You saw me before I was born and
scheduled all the days of my life before I began to breathe. How
precious are your thoughts towards me Oh Lord. I cannot even count how
many times a day your thoughts turn towards me and when I waken in the
morning you are still thinking about me.
Thank you for family
members and friends. But most of all, I want to thank you for being the
Author of my Life, making me, and having total copyrights to me. You
have provided me Your Word to direct me and lead me. Even when I mess
up, you are there for me Oh Lord. You beautifully redeem me daily as Yeshua.
Thank you so much Jesus. I pray for those Oh Lord who are feeling lonely
on their birthday that you Oh Lord would shower upon them Your love so
that they can be transformed by Your abundant grace. Thank you so much
Jesus. Thank you that you hear and
answer. Thank you for dying for my sins and coming back to life to save
me. Help Oh Lord. In Your Name I Pray Jesus. Amen!
Lord Jesus, You are my all in
all. You are my Prince of Peace, Rock, Savior, and Friend. You are my
Holy Father guiding me through to live a life of righteousness, holy
righteousness. Oh God, I need you more than ever. I need to feel your
hands around me holding me tight. I need your love to surround me so
that you can glow in my life. Help me please Jesus. I desire in your
presence. Thank you for guiding me to live a life of righteousness. Oh
God you love me more than ever. You hear my voice when I cry out to you.
When I seek your face, you fill me up. You are my all in all. Thank you
Jesus so much for your help no matter what I face, your grace is
available and you take my case. Thank you for hearing us and answering
us. In Your Name I Pray Jesus! AMEN! (Most of the prayer is from a
vineyard song called “All in All”)
No matter what you feel in your heart, know that Jesus has come in
and resides with you! You are not alone! To make your walk strong with
the Lord, spend time in prayer talking to Him as you would to a friend.
You don’t need special words to talk to the Lord. Spend time in His Word
reading Psalms and turning them into prayer. Next allow God to heal you
and speak to you through the Gospel of John or Gospel of Mark before
moving on to other Books of the Bible! Slowly, let the Lord show you to
which Scriptures He wants you to go to next. It is also important to be
part of a body of believers to help you grow in the faith. Find a Bible
believing church that preaches the Word of God from Genesis to
Revelation proclaiming Jesus Christ our crucified and risen Lord who
brings us hope, healing, and help!
May the Lord's presence and peace fill you with His love now and
Friend, if you have prayed this prayer and meant it in your heart, you
are a new creation in Christ and all old things are passed away and
everything has become new! You may feel something or may not but don’t
base it on feelings but base your new life in Christ on the promises of
our Savior who will never leave you nor forsake you! Amen!
