Granted, this is talking about when each of us are created in the very beginning, when God is forming us in the womb.
Yet, I propose another layer to this verse, the part where it says "I was made in secret."
The choices we make in our lives affects every cell in our bodies. The way we live, the way we think, how we feel, all of this affects every part of ourselves physically. We are whole creatures not parts. And let's say we have been thinking a certain way our whole lives. Maybe we have been trying to live this life on our own in some areas without God's help. Maybe we have truly given our lives to Him but there are parts of us we don't even know about that haven't been changed. This is possible because we accept God's way mentally and emotionally but the rest of us has to change also and sometimes this is a slow process.
I hope this is making sense!
I will use myself as an example. Maybe 18 months ago God asked me a question: Will you believe no matter what? He asked.
Yes, I said.
Then proceeded the hardest time of my life I think (it continues). I have had to deal with fears and self-reliance, thought-patterns I didn't even realize weren't of God. It was the way I was taught from the womb up. Those kinds of thought patterns are hard to uncover and break because they are woven into the fabric of our very beings!
So, this process has been happening. And glory! God has freed me from worry and fear in so many areas that weren't totally free.
Lately though I've not been feeling the best physically. There have been some weird symptoms, some pain. And I know that I know that I know it is hidden stress. I don't feel stressed but there are parts of me, like my subconscious self, who haven't wholly given into this belief thing.
Americans are raised to be practical and independent, hard-working. There is nothing we can't do. And this is a great attitude until we have to wholly believe God when everything around us is pointing to failure. How things look doesn't jive with what we've been taught.
Okay, I'm rambling today. Just examine yourself. Ask God if there is hidden fear or stress in you that you need to give to Him. It will surely make you feel better!
