Wonderfully Made

Psalm 139:14 gives us one more reason to praise the Lord: we are fearfully and wonderfully made. We were not wonderfully made as a result of a bang or explosion, but by the creative power of the God of the universe.

Without getting into any form of science, just consider some of what we can deduce from common sense. You are using your eyes to read this. You know your eyes—those tiny, squishy balls in your eye sockets that take in sight upside down, and at the speed of light flip it so that you can see properly. Have you ever considered how your eye works? Or how about your brain? Or your liver, kidneys, or stomach? How do your veins, arteries, or platelets do what they do? What about your nervous system or digestive system? Even if you know how they work, that doesn’t explain the miracle that they do work.

Consider your heart. Your heart beats 1.3 gallons of blood per minute, and if you live to be 66, your heart will have pumped 48 million gallons of blood. That is what it means to be wonderfully made.

You can listen to an evolutionary scientist ramble on about debunked methods of carbon dating, but at the end of the day, just use common sense. Are we really supposed to believe that our complex bodies evolved, or that an Intelligent Designer created them?

“I will praise Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Thy works, and my soul knoweth right well.”
Psalm 139:14
