Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

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 wonderful made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Devo in a nutshell:

Some years ago a documentary special came out with the latest research findings about men and women. Everyone was waiting with great anticipation to find out what this latest groundbreaking research would tell us and how it would help us advance into the 21st century.
After a few hours the moment of truth came and the researches shared, “Men and women are made differently!”
I burst into laughter!!! This is a fundamental truth I have shared with couples during pre-marital counseling for 20 years. God made you different and each of you bring to the marriage relationship something very special and unique. You are different in anatomy, in thoughts, in expectations, in communication and many more ways.
But thinking deeper into this passage I realize that not only are men and women created different, everyone is created different by God and as different as each of us are; we are also each one special just the way we are. God made us the way we are!!! And God doesn’t make mistakes.
You may have been told you’re not special, that your ordinary, you’re this or that… let me remind you today you are special!!! You are important!!! You are loved!!!
Never let the world or anyone in the world tell you that you’re nothing because you are something special! Special because the God of all creation designed you just the way you are and because He so loved you that He gave His only Son to die in your place.
When others tell you’re just ordinary remember our passage, “you are fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Lord thank You that You didn’t make everyone like me. Differences among us is what makes life so interesting.

Have a great day in the Lord.
