This photo of my newest great-grandchild and her father spelled trust to me the moment I looked at it. It reminded me of Isaiah 41:10…“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
From the time of your birth to life’s final day, He will hold you up. Happy Sunday.
Many years ago I was asked this question: “If we are God’s children do we have his DNA?” I have grappled with the question over the years and finally found some answers in the Bible; not necessarily DNA answers but God’s participation in our birth.
No one who is born of God will continue to sin because God’s seed remains in him. 1 John 3:9
…You brought me forth from my mother’s womb. From birth I have relied on you. Psalm 71:6
…Your redeemer who formed you in the womb: Isaiah 44:24
Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you, even at my mother’s breast. From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God. Psalm 22:9, 10
…You whom I have upheld since you were conceived and have carried since your birth. Isaiah 46:3
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13
All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:16
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart…Jeremiah 1:5
Did not he who made me in the womb make them? (slaves) Did not the same one form us both within our mothers? Job 31:15
Your hands shaped me and made me. Job 10:8
You gave me life and showed me kindness. Job 10:12
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1
And that concludes my search for “the Bible on birth” to date. I don’t know if I have God’s DNA but I do know that he is my Father.
