Fearfully, Wonderfully Made

The psalmist writes in Psalm 139:14, the well-known words, “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”  Our person created by God – body, soul, and spirit – inspires awe from us.   As you tick off the various systems of your body alone, you acknowledge the wonder.  That doesn’t mean you comprehend your brain, your circulatory, nervous, digestive, muscular, excretory, and reproductive systems.  And that’s before you start with the spiritual aspect of you.  God made you and He has a plan for you.  You’ve come a long ways if you understand that you were formed by God, and if you can accept that, then you can go further and believe that you’ve been ruined by sin.  That’s why this world and you are breaking down.  That explains the problems we see all around us.  But it doesn’t stop there.  God has a means of redemption.  As much as this is a complex universe with all of its moving parts, God in His sovereignty works it all together like clockwork.  We learn about it from His Word.  God is not the Author of sin, but He still will be glorified by redeeming men from sin’s bondage through the death, burial, and resurrection of His Son.  As amazing as is His creation, we should expect further amazement in the story as it progresses.  We should not expect it to become less amazing.  God is still at work and He wants us to spread these truths to others.
