I am fearfully wonderfully made and so are you. Don't let anybody tell you anything different!
Is this boasting or being prideful? Not at all. This is a recognition of the Lord's handiwork rather than boasting of ourselves.
Being "wonderfully" made is fairly straight forward sounding, but takes a revealing shape when we dig into the word. Wonderfully is used here to describe being distinct, marked out, separated, and set apart.
In today's vernacular, being "fearfully" made might not make too much sense. But when we do some research into its usage here, it means honor, reverence, and respect. Much like it means for us to "fear" the Lord. We're not running for our lives in fear of God, but giving him respect, honor and reverence.
What does this Mean?
Well, it can mean the following:
- We are respectfully and distinctly made
- We are honorably made and marked out with purpose in the will of the Lord
- We are reverently made and set apart from all of creation
- Or any combination of the first three
All would be correct, and considering the Lord has seen fit to preserve this piece of information for us in his Word, it must be of some importance!
From the Lord to You!
This is a personal message from the Lord to all of us. Why? Because it"s the truth, and he knows how important it is to each of us, if we only would believe it.
We can memorize this piece of scripture, dissect it, or do some heavy studying and research concerning it. But at the end of the day it comes down to one thing.
Do you believe it?
Knowing it is one thing, but trusting it to be true is another. Perhaps the absence of belief in this idea in today's society is at the heart of people with serious self esteem issues.
Why did the Lord want us to have this piece of information? To do what the Psalmist did. Stir up joyfully in the Lord God, knowing that the creator of all that ever was, is, or will ever be, took great care in fashioning us together, making us all unique and with purpose.
All according to his own purpose.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
