13For You FORMED my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them! (Psalm 139: 13-17 NKJV)
2 Chronicles 7:13,14 both use the words “My people” when God describes His relationship with those for whom He is responsible. In verse 13 He gives example of consequence when the people forget to whom they belong, and verse 14 describes the responsibility the people have when things are out of order. “My people” What a wonderful title He gives to those He chooses. “Those people” would alienate us, “The people” would be impersonal. His relationship is one of longsuffering…for better and for worse…Like a marriage is designed in vow and covenant. He implemented Plan A with no provision for a Plan B. Prayer is always God’s answer for readjustment, reordering, and renewal. When “His people” understand He chose us to orchestrate His will in the earth, then we will function with power. He said “My people” not My person…He can use one person if He must, but He prefers multiples.
