PSALM 139

v.15

My frame was not hidden from you when you made me in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depth of the earth.

Frame: A border or case for enclosing a picture, mirror, etc. A body, especially a human body, with reference to its size or build; physique

  • When God created you, he placed the pieces where they needed to go to hold you together.

Why a secret place?

  • So only He knows what can hold you together. No one else is there to take credit or take the place that is meant for him.
  • Gives special attention to the creation/being at hand.

woven together in the depths of the earth

If I had a secret place, I would go there to do my best work before presenting it to the world. Take notice:

  1. God knit you together in your mother’s womb (v.13)
  2. He hemmed you in behind and before (v. 5)
  3. Wove you together in the depths of the earth (v.15)

To weave something takes:

  • Knowledge (know how)
  • Sense of creativity or vision
  • Time, patience, & effort

You were created in more than one place.

  • In EVERY stage, he was/is there to complete you

When I think of knitting I think of difficulties, the intricacies, the material used….

  1. 13 For you created my inmost being;

From my inmost being he’s made me in his image- A body with many parts. Every part matters.

Still considering being woven, knitted, hemmed, …

  • If one knit gets loose, the “thing” can start to tear and fall apart. No knit is ever meant to be perfect. There will be wear and tear and even still, wholeness and the feeling of being complete still stands in His image.
  • God gave you love, flesh, organs, tissue, blood, spirit/soul, a brain, needs
    • Whether tangible or intangible – All work together for the purpose of life
    • The human body is symbolic to his church with love/Jesus at the head. (1 Cor 12: 12; 18-20, Col 1:18)
  • God created you from what physically sustains you- earth- but He also had to be present to give you the rest
    • Breath
    • Desire
    • Personality
    • Etc.
  • God has the land/nature under his provision
    • He has the healthy, unhealthy, necessary, tangible, intangible parts of us under his provision and love.

Think about it:

  • How is God knitting and weaving you now?
  • How has he already prepared you for now?
    • 2 Peter 1:3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a Godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
  • Do you think you were supposed to come undone? Or stay “put together”?
    • In what ways, have you already come undone?
      • Physically,
      • Financially,
      • Mentally,
      • Or Spiritually?
    • He’s with you now as a new creation. New stage of life.

You were NOT meant to be perfect or obtain immortality for this world, but to become a citizen in Heaven and receive the gift of eternal life. So, in light of God’s plan for your frame- trust in his love.
