November 10 – Far Far Back Before Everything

“Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them.”  – Psalm 139:16 (NASB)

So far, over the last two days we’ve considered the attributes of God that describe his knowledge of everything and his presence everywhere. There is nothing God doesn’t know. There is nowhere He needs to go to for He’s already there He’s in all places. Those are pretty awesome characteristics. God also is all powerful. We acknowledge that our omnipotent God has nothing He cannot do. Although God doesn’t and cannot sin, it is because only those born in sin are slaves to sin. God is not a slave to sin because He is holy He cannot become a sinner. And, God’s omnipotence is how He can create a human and He does this within our mother’s womb. God is the one who makes us how we are. He predestines each of our days, our verse says, he does so when yet they was none of them. In Ephesians 1:3-4, we learn that each who believe in God were created by and were chosen by Christ before the foundation of the earth for salvation. We humans are made not by accident but for God’s purpose and out of his love and omnipotent might.
