Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you, even at my mother’s breast. From birth I was cast on you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God (Psalm 22:9-10).
David had never not known God.
How cool is that?
Notice the pattern here. David is fearful because God does not seem to be responding to his situation. Then, David remembers how faithful God has been to his people through the years, and that knowledge gives him comfort. Then David looks at his own unworthiness and is again tossed into the proverbial Pit of Despair.
And then he remembers God’s faithfulness, this time to him personally.
I came to Christ at age nineteen. Before that, God was there; I just didn’t recognize him. I can look back and see that he protected and provided and cared for me long before I realized what was going on. That’s a rock I can hold onto in the ugly times.
And trust me–I do.
How’s about you, Beloved? Do you remember a time when you did not know God? Can you look back now and see him at work, even before you realized he was working? Can you walk into your Wednesday secure in the knowledge that from the womb you have been loved by the One True God?
Then do so.
Happy Wednesday, Beloved
