No Longer Slaves - Verse 2

From my mother’s womb
You have chosen me
Love has called my name
I’ve been born again, into your family
Your blood flows through my veins

While I was pregnant for my daughter, even before the sonogram, God named her. That name has repeatedly been a source of hope, healing and destiny as she grows. As I prayed for my daughter recently it dawned on me, during my pregnancy God was already giving her weapons for her warfare. That was a startling and powerful revelation

It is important we realize how intricately God was involved with us in our mother’s womb because although we were born into a fallen and broken world, we did not arrive unprepared. Unrefined? Yes, but, not unprepared.

In Jereimiah it says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you;.” Insert your name instead of “you”.

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12

Psalm 139 has a lot to say about who we are and how God fashioned us in our mother's womb. This picture is a snapshot of Psalm 139 in the Passion Translation, I encourage you to read the whole thing and really meditate on what it is saying to you, about you and for you.

Are you struggling to believe that God has a plan or purpose for your life? Do you think you are too messed up to be used by Him? Ask the Father what name HE called you in your mother’s womb? Ask Him to reveal to you the weapons of your warfare that He gave you before you were even born? Those could be the keys to defeating the circumstances you find yourself in and your victory in the current battle. Be still, know He is God and allow Him and His Holy Spirit to speak to you.

Hi Mari! Nice to hear from you again.
That's one of my favorite Psalms and that verse is very powerful!
