“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well” (Psalms 139:14, KJV)
We need simply open our eyes and look in the closest mirror to behold the wondrous works of God Almighty. We are truly a work to admire. This can only be because of the One who made us is admirable. His works are marvelous in their uniqueness because only He can perform them. Such as, it is with the creation of man and woman. The Bible in Basic English (1865) translates that our creation is strange and delicate. Extraordinary and beyond the power of anyone but God, we are walking miracles.
Everything about us God knows, because we are His. Before our full formation, our lives He chose. He knew before He made us what His plans were for us. He knew how He would proceed to carry out that plan. Our lives are truly in His hands. That is the way that is has always been because that is where our lives started. The Bible In Basic English (1865) tell us that when we were nothing God had our days recorded even before a single purposed day had come into being.
We are the creation of a God who is awesome and worthy of reverence. We are from the dirt but made for dominion. God’s intention for us is to live in the authority given to us when He fashioned us with His hands. We are in the image of our creator. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion…And God made man in his image, in the image of God he made him; male and female created he them” (Genesis 1:26, 27; KJV).We are to prevail over all that is in the earth as direct representatives of God.
We can do anything because we are in the image of the all-powerful. We can have anything because we are in the image of the One who owns it all. Nothing is impossible to us who believe. When we know whom we are, in the essence of who created us, we can enjoy life for its purpose. Even when life is not perfect, God will advise us in our sorrow and lead us through this course of life. Fearfully and wonderfully made are we, and able to live an extraordinary life in the power of God.
