I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are your works, And that my soul knows very well. Psalm 139:14 NKJV
Somebody wrote these words. They were not spit out of a computer. They did not fall from the sky. The psalmist never claimed he was visited by an Angel who told him where to find the book of Psalms. These words are found in God’s revelation to mankind!
This is the word of God. The psalmist wrote these words under inspiration of The Holy Spirit. How did that happen?
God is not offended when we ask questions. He is not afraid we will discover hidden truth He is keeping from us.
The psalmist was able to write such beautiful words of praise, prayer and thanksgiving because of the depth of emotion welled up within him.
I will praise you, (my God), for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
No scientist or super computer can duplicate the functions of our bodies? The level of complexity is staggering. You are one of billions of people who have ever lived. We are all the same. Yet each of us is unique and special. No one who ever lived is exactly like you. And yet we are all made in the image and likeness of Almighty God!
Marvelous are your works.
Almighty God did an awesome thing when He created you. The psalmist knew he was created in the image of God to be loved by the Lord. He knew the master artisan did not create him by random chance or accident. God created him for a divine purpose. God created Him as part of His perfect plan for His beloved!
And that my soul knows very well.
The psalmist was so overcome and undone by God’s love He needed an outlet to express it. Perhaps God spoke to him. Maybe it was not in an audible way. Maybe God spoke to him in that still small voice that leaves us wondering if the Lord really speak to us.
God is speaking to you today. He is saying, “My precious child I love you. I have loved you from the beginning. I will always love you. I will be with you even until the end of time!”
God’s greatest desire is for you to know how much He loves you. Jesus looks forward to the day when you will love Him as much as He loves you!
The work of God’s hands truly is marvelous. You are His greatest masterpiece!
