The Expert Knitter

For You From The Word

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.
(Psalm 139:13-14)

For You To Think About

knitterAnyone who has tried to hand-knit understands it’s anything but easy, even with a good pattern and quality yarn at your disposal. Knitting takes time, practice, and skill.

In order for a project to succeed, a knitter plans it deliberately. She’s intentional about choosing the right size needles, type and weight of yarn, and pattern. Then there’s the actual knitting. Every stitch matters.  Knitters know how easy it is to drop a stitch and unravel an entire garment – and hours of time.

In Psalm 139, God gives us a powerful word picture describing a baby’s development in the womb: He knit together each one of us. God created the “threads” of our individual make-up and then wove them together perfectly. Like a knitter, God plans each life deliberately and intentionally. He creates each cell and then knits them together to craft a beautiful new life. Knitting together a human being is more than a complex project … it’s a masterpiece.

No child is the result of chance.

For You To Pray

Gracious Father,
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Help women who face an unplanned pregnancy understand that You plan each life intentionally. You’re knitting their babies together perfectly right now.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
