From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God. Psalm 22:10 (NIV)

In faith, I know this to be true:

God spoke me into my mother’s womb, and he has anointed me to teach his ways to others.

Before I was formed in the womb God knew (Jeremiah 1:5). He “created my inmost being; [he] knit me together in my mother’s womb” (Psalm 139:13 NIV).

From my birth, while I was still in the womb, I cast myself into God’s loving hands. He has been my God since I was in my mother’s womb (Psalm 22:10). From birth I have relied on him; he brought me forth from my mother’s womb. I will ever praise him, My God and Heavenly Father (Psalm 71:6 NIV).

My objective-in-Jesus is to live a life shaped by God, not by my feelings or thoughts, or one shaped by peer pressure. I am God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for me to do (Ephesians 2:10 NIV).

I will trust in the Lord with all my heart; I will lean not on my own understanding; in all my ways I will acknowledge you, Lord, knowing, since I was in my mother’s womb, you have straightened the oath for me (Proverbs 3:5–6 NIV).
