Fearfully & Wonderfully Made
Updated: Jul 28, 2021
Thank you for creating me ever so carefully. I pray that you give me wisdom to care for your creation so that I will be pleasing to you.
The word of God says in Genesis the first book of Moses that God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, darkness was upon the face of the deep (Genesis 1 vs. 2). The Almighty God our Father spoke the world in existence. He said “Let there be light and there was light.”.
Psalm 139 vs 14
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
In The Beginning
He then said “let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters” from His speech He created the heavens, the water, and the dry land. Then God said “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb, the fruit and the fruit tree yielding seed after his kind. With His voice He formed light and darkness, fish, and every living creature on this planet called earth.
He formed you and I. God formed man in His own image, He formed us! In Genesis 1 vs 26: God said “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
He formed us! Webster defines the word formed as an adjective meaning to mold, to shape, establish, to bring together or to compose. That is awesome! God himself made us with his hand and then blew in us the breath of life! He spoke everything on this earth into existence, but carefully and wonderfully made man.
He created us!
The almighty Father desired us so much that He took the time, to shape and mold us with His hands. He shaped, molded, brought us together, established, founded, made up or composed us!
The very thought brings tears to my eyes. When I think of how much God desires and loves his children! And how much more I need to serve Him with all, of my being. It amazes me that even though, God created us with His own hands. He still does not make us do anything. He gives us free will to choose who we will serve; it is up to us to choose Him daily. He said He will never leave us or forsake us; He is the same God when we stray as He is when we are walking in His will. He is God Almighty, and He said He will change not.
