“fearfully and wonderfully made”


Psalms 139:14
I will praise thee;
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

How would you answer this multiple-choice question?

  • a coincidental collision of particles.
  • an accidental evolution of molecules.
  • soulless flotsam in the universe,
  • “fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Don’t dull your life by missing this point:
You are more than statistical chance,
more than a marriage of heredity and society,
more than a confluence of inherited chromosomes
and childhood trauma.
More than a walking weather vane whipped about
by the cold winds of fate.
Thanks to God you have been
“sculpted from nothing into something”
(Psalms 139:15MSG)
Cure for the Common Life, Max Lucado

Psalms 139:15-18
My substance was not hid from thee,
when I was made in secret,
and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect;
and in thy book all my members were written,
which in continuance were fashioned,
when as yet there was none of them.
How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God!
how great is the sum of them!
If I should count them,
they are more in number than the sand:
when I awake,
I am still with thee.
