Wonderfully Made By God


Dear God and Father, I am troubled by the issues of my present world and need to find a focus on Your truth instead of the distressing headlines. Open my eyes to Your inspired Word and help me grow in faith and trust that your will shall reign supreme.

READ: Psalms 139: 13-16 (NIV)

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. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalms 139: 13-16 (NIV)


Our God and Father is a relational Creator, as David expresses in the passage above. This is a powerful Judeo-Christian doctrine that shines a great deal of light on the present controversy of abortion. Unlike deist philosophy that views God as Creator but having no further involvement with His creation. The Bible teaches us that not only did God create mankind, but He is also involved in the process of procreation. As new life is formed in the womb of a mother, David proclaimed, “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. (Ps. 139:13-14 NLT)

Too often as moderns, we view God as a Creator, but we spend so little time thinking about His intimate design and purpose for my life and His involvement in creating me. How it must sadden the heart of our Lord, when we fail to comprehend just how wondrously we are made by His design. In my heart, I find the need to pause just for a few moments to think about Him as a loving Heavenly Father. One Who knows me personally and loves me although I don’t fully comprehend nor recognize the full depth of His personal, creative involvement in my life. This accomplished, perhaps I can better understand His fingerprints on my life.


Read again the Psalm 139:13-16 passage above. But this time, read it phrase by phrase. Make each phrase a prayer of praise. Thank God for the wonderful way He made you according to His design. And then spend time thanking Him for His love.


Thank you, Jesus, for everything. I pray that I listen to your spirit and Word today. Help me to honor you in everything I do.
