Marvelous Truth

Marvelous TruthToday’s verse seems to speak some marvelous truths that bring me to remembrance of how precious life truly is. The Psalmist is bold in his assertion that God is the author of life and that life, from the very moment of conception, is precious, holy, and sanctified in the eyes of God.

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” (Psalm 139:14)

It is indeed a marvelous fact that each one of us is fearfully and wonderfully made…each is different and unique and bears qualities unlike those of any other. And, yet, it has taken science thousands of years to finally prove this fact through DNA mapping.

But again, David was so very aware of God’s creative handiwork within the mother’s womb as he was knit together from the very first moment of conception. As he meditated on these things, he was overwhelmed by the thought of God’s creative power, even to the point of saying, “and that my soul knoweth right well!” Can you hear him now? As pure revelation from the Spirit of God engraved on the tables of his heart, he nearly leaped for joy at the thought of the magnificence of God’s handiwork.

God is awesome, and His handiwork is unmatchable! Who is like our God? There is none like Him in all the earth! Praise Him today for His work in your life and in the earth today. Nothing has escaped His attention, but rather He is acutely aware of every need in every life in this world today! Look around you and declare, “Marvelous are His works, and that my soul knoweth right well!

Father, I am suddenly so aware of how marvelous Your works really are and I feel like I could shout it! You are awesome, and Your is absolutely beyond words! Thank You, Lord, for giving me life so that I might enjoy Your handiwork and see Your glory in all You have done throughout the earth today! How magnificent, Lord, You truly are! Amen!
