“The word of the LORD came to me, saying, ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.’" Jeremiah 1:4-5
Abortion advocates will tell you a fetus is simply a clump of cells, an insignificant combination of an egg and sperm. Labeled as inconvenient and largely unimportant, you can destroy these cells with a simple procedure. One visit to a clinic can remove that invader in your uterus. Those cells will be gone, and your life can continue without that disruption.
These words probably made you cringe. Maybe they made you angry, or maybe they made your heart hurt. This words impacted you because you know the truth. You know that fetus is not just a clump of cells. It is not inconvenient. It is not unimportant. It is not insignificant. That fetus is indeed a human being, formed by our ever-talented Creator, the almighty God.
God, the author of life, created that beautiful baby. From the moment of conception, this baby has its very own, distinct DNA. God has already given this child a unique identity and planned an entire life. He knows the color of baby’s eyes. He knows how many hairs will be on his head. He knows how much she will weigh. He knows he will scrape his knee in the second grade, and He knows she will be the valedictorian of her class. He knows because this baby has been written in the book of life. This is a child he saved on Calvary, this is a soul He redeemed.
The baby our clients tell us was unplanned is the same baby God had planned from the beginning of time.
And these words are powerful. Because when our clients see baby as a mistake, we can remind them that God does not make mistakes. He created this baby with purpose, and this baby is part of His divine plan. Understanding this fundamental principle provides reassurance and instills hope within our clients. God’s unfailing love conquers the doubt, fears, and insecurities of our clients. He overcomes the pressures and provides the strength our clients need. He continues to change lives, and we feel humbled to witness His grace each and every day.
