Destiny is Conceived, Formed, and Carried in the Spiritual Womb
Just as this visible world was created and formed by God’s Invisible Word, God’s Word over our lives is the Invisible Material He wants us to use to create and form the “world” (dreams/destiny) He desires for us in the visible realm. His WORD will bring into existence the destiny He’s spoken over us. (John 1:1-3, Luke 1:37, Isaiah 55:10-11)
By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:3
For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment. Luke 1:37)
Yet we know our faith and cooperation also plays an important role in the process. So He’s been re-emphasizing to us the need to meditate on His Word and promises so much that they begin to “FORM” His vision for our lives inside us. He then began to compare this to the intricate process in the natural of how He FORMS and FASHIONS each of us in our mother’s wombs. He repeatedly brought up passages from Psalm 139, showing me the connection between this process in the natural realm and the things He was speaking to me about the process in the spiritual realm of our destiny being FORMED inside us. Just as we initially CONCEIVE His destiny for our lives through the Seed of His Word (through Him speaking to us about His plans for our lives, through which we become pregnant with His promises, so that we’re then EXPECTING), by continuing in Him/His Word the destiny continues to be formed in us – piece by piece, part by part.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! Psalm 139:13-18 NLT
Just as all of our parts (or days) were written in His book before any of them came into existence, all the parts we need to fulfill our destiny were also written in His book in advance. As we abide in Him and His Word, He continues to form that destiny in our spiritual womb. As He was speaking last July, like an EXPECTANT mother, we are ENLARGED in order to carry the dream/destiny in the waiting (rather than diminished) (links to those posts below). He will continue to intricately weave it together, adding piece by piece until the vision/destiny is fully formed and due season arrives for us to give birth. Faith is like our spiritual ultrasound equipment, enabling us to “see” the destiny God’s Word is forming on the inside, even while it’s still “invisible” to the natural eye. And faith in that Word will also eventually enable us to bring forth what has been formed on the inside into manifestation on the outside ~ giving birth to our destiny.
