“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; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:13-14)

The growth and the nurturing we received while in our mother’s womb is a wonderful example of God’s great care for us. It is a clear picture of how God our Father wants to provide for us while we are in the womb and out of it.

Our nine months in the womb, as an embryo formed into a tiny baby, is the precedent to experiencing the hand of God outside the womb.

This tiny form deep inside the mother did not demand the nourishment it needed to develop. Before the babe knew what it needed the nutrients were already there for the next stage of growth as the hands, fingers, feet and toes, eyes and ears needed to develop.

The baby was in perfect alignment with the Spirit of God who had prepared beforehand what was required for the next stage of development.

This time in our mother’s womb was a complete resting, relying and trusting in the source of life for all our needs. We cannot give our brain credit for any of this development as it was formed separately. The energy needed for us to continue to grow flowed into us from God’s hand that created life and its ability to reproduce.

From a tiny seed under the care of our Heavenly Father, we flourished and grew in perfect alignment with God’s design.

As one author put it, “we were a little larvae shaped ooze ball that in a relatively short period of time, became a human being with necessary apparatus to support life outside the womb.”

Now that we are outside our mother’s womb we need to remember the provision and supply we had while in her womb. We need to continue to trust in God’s care and plan:

“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.” (2 Peter 1:3 NKJ)

There are days when I have experienced this divine flowing of what I needed before I knew I needed it.  Running errands on a day that is already too full and events fall into place smoothly and I find what I need easily and without duress.  Or connections with people that point you in a direction that lines up with what you need at a particular time in your life.

I am amazed when this happens and enjoy the ease and pleasantness when the details of my life line up perfectly.  The word ‘synchronicity’ describes these events to  “be meaningful  coincidences” as they occur with no casual relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related or connected.

God has everything in hand and will synchronize delivery with our need. On our part, we need to have faith that help is on its way to meet our present need  and  fulfill His purpose in our life.

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:19
