"Fearfully & Wonderfully Made"

Psalm 139:13-14 For You formed my inward parts;You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.
Psalm 139:17-18 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You.

What a wonderful thought - God thinks you're absolutely terrific and can't get you off of His mind. He's thinking so many precious and wonderful thoughts of you all the time that they couldn't even be numbered if you tried. He has created a masterpiece in you. You are a classic; you are His jewel. You are unique, amazing, astonishing, incredible, worthy of admiration, fine, enjoyable, excellent, pleasant, awesome, beautiful, fabulous, fantastic and very good. That's the definition of the word wonderful and God has said it, so it is true.

And not only that, He says you're fearfully and wonderfully made. Fearful here means "very", and that means in the fullest sense, wonderful. It also speaks of being complete, complete in Him. You are indispensable and certainly, positively, truly, exceptionally, exceedingly, extraordinarily and decidedly wonderful to Him. And that's not it! He also says you are greatly valued, greatly desired and one He holds in great esteem. You are beloved and dear to Him, over-refined, cherished, unable to calculate in worth, prized and rare. This is the definition of the word precious.

You are beyond compare in the eyes of God. He sees you as no other but made you for Himself. You are the only one like you; you're in a class by yourself. No one can replace you and only you can accomplish what God has predestined for your life. For you see, He has fully equipped you and made you who you are to accomplish His purpose as you walk with Him.

In Christ Jesus you are of a royal lineage for you are His descendent, birthed into His family by the blood of Jesus where you are seated in heavenly places in Him. There is no higher rank. You have been inducted into the Lion of the tribe of Judah, made a king and a priest where His estate is yours and all pertaining to life and godliness; He paid the price. What was once owned by satan through sin has been bought back; you have been redeemed. Your position is secure because it is in Him you are found when Christ Jesus you have made your own. You need not question your standing, status, position or place for you are His sons and daughters, perfect in Him and lacking no good thing.

I think you're pretty special too and I pray you are blessed today and see yourself as the Father sees you through the Lord, Jesus Christ, PERFECT!

I will praise You
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made
Through Your Son, Jesus Christ
and the life that He gave
And for the grace You have given
that You see me the same
As Him who now fills me
I am seen without blame.
For I am forgiven
because He paid the price
Shedding His own blood
that I might have life.
Life that's eternal
never to end
An eternity given
that I might apprehend
Your thoughts toward me, Father
and to give You my praise
For You who have made me
and for the life that You saved.
Thanking You for the Perfect One
dwelling inside
Ever reaching forward
toward the goal for the prize
Of the call in Christ Jesus
all else left behind
Until perfection in Him
at last I would find.
I feel Your delight, Lord
just as I am
Hearing the beat
of Your heart that You send.
Marvelous are Your works, Lord
I know in my soul
That precious You find me
but it is hard to take hold.
For Your thoughts are without number
more than the sand
Your love is so great
complete and so grand.
To know without ceasing
You're thinking of me
Lord, in my mind
I cannot conceive.
But Your Word You have spoken
unto me You impart
You take hold and ravish
captivating my heart.
Such love I've not known
such joy and delight
Carried away
and seized by the Light
That opens my eyes
and makes me to see
Touching and changing
and setting me free.
Free, Lord, to love You
because You've loved me
First and so purely
I reach out and receive.
Blessing the name
of my Savior and Lord
Whom I worship and honor,
love and adore.
No, I'll not wait till Heaven
but I must sing His song
I must tell of His greatness
all the day long.
For you see, I had nothing
until He took hold
And made warm a heart
that once was so cold.
He filled me up
making love to abound
His love, everlasting
in the heart He gave, found.
May the love of the Father
through the Lord, Jesus Christ
Light your way on the path
and may you soar to new heights
Through a love that sustains you
and strengthens each day
As you see yourself through His eyes
so wonderfully made.

(Please read all of Psalm 139 and see yourself through God's eyes-
"Fearfully & Wonderfully Made")
