Yesterday my husband and I had the incredible opportunity to have a 3D ultrasound. Because I’m sooo old to have a baby, (don’t ask!) the doctor considers me to have age-related risk factors so he ordered a level II ultrasound.
To have a sneak-preview at God’s creation is more than words can say. The psalmist depicted this beautifully in Psalm 139:13-16:
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body.
I found myself in awe over God’s creation and then a twinge of conviction set in. The vision of His handiwork was beautifully illustrated in the ultrasound and the peace of His Spirit is evident. The question is: Do I trust Him as much with His Creation that I can see? In other words, all the physical and mental orchestration He is perfecting in the womb is His Work. I’m not giving a lot of thought to developing the kidneys and liver. I’m not concerned with the cells and valves and details, until the finished product.
But think of the trust I place in His hands with my lack of knowledge about this beautiful baby. So what happens when I can see His creation? Am I suddenly taking the full responsibility of worry over this child when she is His from the beginning?
The next verse in Psalm 139:
All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
God loves His children and His plan for each of us as individuals is foremost on His mind.
He has no plan B. Or C. Or D. Only A. And it’s the best.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and LEAN NOT to your own understanding.
How’s your trust lately?
