You Can’t Develop What God Left Out

“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book, they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them” (Ps. 139:13-16). 

The psalmist is talking about the fact that God knew everything about us when we were still in our mother’s womb. He possessed us and made us in secret. We are His treasure, He possessed us before we came to know Him. All of our members, every single part of our body, every detail, our hair colour, our eye colour, our characteristics, our personalities, our talents, our abilities were all established in our mother’s womb.

Our most hidden and vital parts were all formed by Him in the hidden place while we were in our mother’s womb. Not after we came out of the womb, not after we developed them. I can understand that people pursue their career, and they develop their skills, they develop their abilities to become an accountant, a medical doctor, a leader etc., but you cannot put in or develop what God left out. You protect what God put in by developing it.
