Psalm 139: 13, 14
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
David expresses his complete confidence in his all powerful, all knowing, God of the universe. There is nothing hidden from His brilliant creator. He had complete assurance that God knew him as he was. Inside and out I guess we can say. As God knew David’s heart, He knows ours ~ what makes us tick, what riles us and what we find delight in. We’re His creation! He made us to be who we are: faults, weaknesses, strengths and all. He saw everything He made and it was good!! You are made in His image! You are made well and according to God’s standards of excellence, you have His stamp of approval and a life – time warranty for your allotted years on this earth and a glorious life eternal with your Savior.
Ok then ~ What do we do when life throws it’s left hooks at us? When it cuts us off at the pass and sideswipes us off our feet? What do we do when we find ourselves in the pit of despair, in bondage to sin, addictions, depression, discouragement, anger, fear, worry or pain?
When something breaks we call on the manufacturer, the one who put it together and knows it’s intricate workings from the inside out. Someone who can assess and evaluate what needs attention and then gets right to the heart of the problem. Friends, when we are broken, down cast, fearful, sad, remorseful and running on empty, we have a maker ~ a manufacturer who knows us from the ground level up. He formed us, He knows, knows, knows us and every detail affecting us. He can get right to the ‘heart’ of the problem. His life-time warranty is our confidence that He can fix it, no strings attached, if we but take ourselves to Him. He will make it work out for our good and His glory, under His skillful hand!
Like David let’s find our assurance in our brilliant creator. The one who made us, can heal us, cleanse us, forgive us, fix us and bless us. ❤ ❤ ❤
Our God is brilliant and even in our greatest thoughts of Him, He is greater still. His works are wonderful!! We can know that full well.
