You created every part of me; you put me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because you are to be feared; all you do is strange and wonderful.
I know it with all my heart.
When my bones were being formed, carefully put together in my mother’s womb,
when I was growing there in secret, you knew that I was there— you saw me before I was born.
How amazing to know that God chose us even before we were born. That love was there even in that moment. A child of God. God's arms are always wide open to receive us if we ask. Through the death of Jesus, we are free and have new life in Him.
So, you are no longer a slave but Gods own child: and since you are his child, God also made you an heir.

Let us pray
Thank you, Lord, that I am your child, and through the death of your Son I am born again. You are constantly with me, behind me, before me and I need not fear because you love me beyond what I can ever imagine.
God rescued us so that we can stand and say ‘I am a child of God’. May we as children of God be a witness for Him. May we be so full of God’s Spirit that others may see Him in us, through how we are, what we say, and what we do. May those that do not know Him come to join us and say ‘I am a child of God’.
