You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. Ps.139:13-16
You were made by the hand of God and given everything you need to fulfill what he has called you to do. But just as a child is developed in the Mothers womb, a child is taught as it grows into an adult. We must be taught by the Holy Spirit as our character is developed. Some of us just as the Isrealites may roam around in the wilderness because of the choices we make.
Moses: Character was developed in another culture and life style.
Joshua and Calab made a choice and so did the other ten spies. Numbers 13
Joseph’s character was being developed until the time came to fulfill His dreams. Ps. 105:19
A gem in the earths surface will always be a gem but until the rough edges are smoothed off and it is processed to a certain point, it’s value is not recognized by the common person.
You will be mine in the day when I take up my jewels and I will spare you as a man spares his own son who serves him Malachi 3:17
Don’t give up on God’s promise for you
Do not despise the stepping stones which are developing your character along the way.
