For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him. Colossians 1:16
Our great creator freely designed all things in heaven and on earth. He perfected each item with an eternity mindset. Amongst His amazing plan, He thought of you. We each play a role in God’s plan.
Psalm 139:14 reminds us we are fearfully and wonderfully made. The writer, David, praised the Lord for His amazing works. Each time I think about this verse I have to stop and ask myself, “When was the last time you praised God for making you?”
I don’t know about you but, I find myself complaining about my imperfections and frailties more than thanking God for His design. Praising Him for my existence is a struggle. Why? Because the enemy has told me differently over and over and I listened to his “hogwash”.
So I have to reel in my thoughts and focus on the words “your works are wonderful” in Psalm 139:14. If I truly believe these words then I have to realize that includes me. That includes you! The Lord created us on purpose for His divine plan. We are wonderfully made.
Not only did He form us in our mother’s womb but, He makes a way for us to walk alongside Him for eternity and provide for us. He promises to stay with us and work in us and through us if we are willing.
Think about nature. The Lord looks after his creation and gives it everything it needs. It is fascinating how each animal and plant is sufficiently giving the nutrients needed. And yet God loves us even more as we read in Matthew 6:26, “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
When was the last time you sat at His feet and thanked Him for creating you? Have you spent any time expressing your gratitude for Him as your sufficient giver? You are valuable to the Lord. Press in and give Him praise.
