The whole of this verse says,
“Upon you I have leaned from birth,
you are he who took me from my mother’s womb
My praise is continually of you.”
How could that be true? How did God know me from birth?
I didn’t give my life to Jesus until I was 19 years old.
My mother passed away before I could ever ask her about my given name–Joanna.
Several years later I found it right there in the book of Luke–
Joanna was one of Jesus’ followers. (8:3)
Just like me.
She was at the tomb when he was resurrected (24:10)
Is there any greater joy?
I may not have been walking with Him but He knew I would be His
from my birth.
How gracious He is to take me from my mother’s womb and to make me His.
My praise is continually of Him.
