#27 – Wonderfully Made

Good morning wonderfully created children of God

Psalm 139:13-14 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

You were conceived in the mind of God before you were conceived by your parents. God was the One who made you and He did a brilliant job! The phrase here ‘wonderfully made’ literally means ‘to distinguish, put a difference, show marvellous, set apart, make wonderfully’. God has made you unique from every one else. There is no replica and God made a perfect design in you.

Many people don’t accept the way they are made. I struggled for many years with being skinny. People mention it to me constantly and they still do. Comments like “Gee have you lost more weight” and even “You’re looking unwell” are discouraging. I have to make a choice (and at times it is still difficult) but I either believe what man says or what God says. My challenge and maybe yours, is not just to accept God’s words, but to praise Him for the way He made me. That’s what this scripture says to do. ‘I praise you because I am wonderfully made’. When was the last time you praised God for making you the way He did? Today would be a great day to so; and tomorrow and Tuesday
