My days, all of them were written in Your book; the days, they were formed when there was not one of them (Psalm 139:16).
It is comforting to know that God knew us long before we were ever born. It is reassuring to understand that the details of our lives on this very day were written in His book before we ever lived them. It is a cause of rest to our hearts to know that He has designed the details of our lives; that we are not living our life on our own, but that He is God – large and in charge – of all that this day, and every other one, brings forth.
After all He is the God Who is,
… declaring the end from the beginning … and … from ancient times the things that are not yet done (Isaiah 46:9-10).
It is a great relief to recognize that we can’t disappoint Him nor surprise Him as we live out our day. For He alone is the Author of our lives; the Sovereign Scribe Who has masterfully crafted the script of our days upon the pages of His epic work.
We are not self-made: we are God-made. We are “His workmanship,” “His achievement” (Ephesians 2:10), and of course,
Known to God are all His works from the beginning of the ages (Acts 15:18).
We can rejoice today that we are His, and that He is fully in charge of our days.
For in Him we live, and move, and have our being (Acts 17:28).
