As a father has compassion on His children, so the
Lord has compassion on those who fear Him;
for He knows how we are formed, He remembers that
we are dust.
Psalm 103:13, 14
What a thought….!!!!
HE KNOWS HOW WE ARE FORMED!
That is an amazing thought. I know He created me but I
was hit anew by what this scripture was saying.
Yes, it is talking about how fragile we are but what does that
mean for other areas of our lives? What does that mean
when it comes to sin?
God knows how we are formed so He knows why we do what we do.
Sin does not take God by surprise!
As our Creator He knows how we are wired. He knew the
impact Adam’s sin would have on us.
God already knows we are going to sin. He knows what
He knows what we struggle with on a daily basis.
He knows and understands……
Even the deep dark sin that nobody knows about,
the sin WE might not even detect, He knows about
Am I then advocating we all sin more????
No, no, no!
He wants us to fight. He doesn’t want us to accept defeat.
We still have a part to play in all of this. Because God
knows how we are created it means He will not abandon
us when we sin. He will help us fight the giants in our lives.
You can be guaranteed no matter what the sin is you will
receive forgiveness, no matter the sin!
The only sin that is unforgivable is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.
Don’t allow guilt and condemnation to take grip in your
life. It’s hard to do but you must fight against it.
The enemy will lie and say your sin is unforgivable but
don’t listen to him. He just wants to separate you
from God. But like I have been telling you,
“God knows how we are formed!” He knows because
He is the One who created us. That is not an excuse
to sin but a reason to depend on His grace and mercy!!
God extends grace to us because He knows how we are
Please understand what I am saying here.
I am not saying we are now free to sin because He
knows how we are created.
We have a responsibility to live holy but there will
be times we miss the mark.
We will miss the mark by a little at times and at
other times by a lot but because
God knows how we are formed He will do things like this:
He will not always chide or be contending, neither
will He keep His anger forever or hold a grudge.
He has not dealt with us after our sins nor rewarded
us according to our iniquities.
Psalm 103:9, 10
There is grace because He knows how we are formed.
It’s not time to sit down and relax because God knows
how we are formed. It’s because He knows how
we are formed that we act. He didn’t create laziness,
fear, or complacency.
He created sons and daughters who love Him and despite
their weaknesses seek Him with everything they have.
As I end this post take comfort in the fact that He knows
how you are created.
He understands what you are going through better than
anyone else on earth. Don’t think you are alone because
you are not.
