READING

Psalm 139:13-14

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

 

REFLECTION

Take a moment to reflect on the profound truth expressed in Psalm 139:13-14. God, the Creator of the universe, intricately formed and knit you together in your mother’s womb. You are fearfully and wonderfully made, a unique masterpiece crafted by the hands of the Divine. Consider the implications of this truth in your life. How does knowing that you are intentionally designed by God impact your self-perception, your sense of worth, and your understanding of your purpose? Take a moment to meditate on the incredible thought that the God of all creation took care and attention to create you in His image. As you reflect on your own identity, remember that every person you encounter is also fearfully and wonderfully made by God. Allow this realization to foster a deeper appreciation for the inherent worth and value of each individual, treating them with kindness, respect, and love. May this reflection on God’s intricate workmanship in your life and in the lives of others inspire gratitude, awe, and a renewed sense of purpose. Take some time to journal your thoughts and insights, or express them through artistic means, as you embrace the truth that you are fearfully and wonderfully made by the Creator of all things.  

MEMORIZING THE VERSE

Psalm 139:13-14 holds a profound truth about our identity and God’s intentional design. Consider taking the time to commit this verse to memory, allowing its powerful message to dwell in your heart and mind. By memorizing these words, you can carry the reminder of your unique creation and God’s love with you throughout the day. Begin by breaking down the verse into smaller parts and repeat them slowly and deliberately. As you internalize each phrase, reflect on its meaning and the impact it has on your life. Meditate on the truth that God formed your inward parts and knit you together in your mother’s womb. Embrace the wonder of being fearfully and wonderfully made by the Creator of all things. Write the verse down on a notecard or place it somewhere visible as a constant reminder. Utilize repetition and recite the verse aloud, allowing its words to sink deep into your soul. As you commit it to memory, consider sharing this verse with others, encouraging them in the truth of their own unique creation and worth in the eyes of God. Through the process of memorization, may this powerful verse become an anchor of truth and a source of encouragement, reminding you of your value and purpose in God’s grand design.  

CREATING AND MEDITATING

In this moment of reflection, you have the opportunity to engage with the truth of Psalm 139:13-14 in a creative and personal way. Choose the method that resonates with you the most—whether it’s doodling or drawing an image that reflects the essence of this verse or writing your thoughts and reflections about it. If you prefer doodling or drawing, take a few moments to visualize the concept of being fearfully and wonderfully made. Let your pen or pencil freely move across the paper, allowing your hand to bring to life the image that comes to mind. Consider symbols, shapes, or representations that capture the beauty of God’s intentional design and the awe-inspiring nature of His creation. If writing is more your style, grab a journal or a piece of paper. Begin by writing down the verse itself, allowing its words to guide your thoughts. Reflect on the impact this truth has on your life. Consider the moments when you have felt God’s hand at work in shaping who you are. Write down your insights, emotions, and any personal connections you have to this powerful message. Whether you choose to create an image or write about the verse, remember that there is no right or wrong way to do it. The goal is to engage your heart and mind, allowing the truth of this passage to take root in your soul. As you create or write, let this time be a form of meditation, a way to connect with God and further explore the depths of your unique identity as fearfully and wonderfully made. Take the next few minutes to immerse yourself in this creative and meditative experience, expressing your thoughts, emotions, and reflections through your chosen method. May this time deepen your understanding of God’s handiwork and bring you closer to the beauty of your true self as you encounter the Creator’s artistry within you.  

TAKING ACTION AND APPLYING

As we conclude our time of reflection and creative expression, let’s consider how we can take the truths of Psalm 139:13-14 and apply them to our daily lives. This powerful passage reminds us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made by God, each with a unique purpose and design. Firstly, let us cultivate a deeper appreciation for ourselves and others. Recognize that the same loving Creator who fashioned you also formed every person you encounter. Embrace the beauty of diversity and treat others with respect, kindness, and love, valuing their inherent worth as individuals fearfully and wonderfully made by God. Secondly, let this truth empower and inspire you in pursuing your purpose. Understand that you are uniquely designed by God with specific gifts, talents, and passions. Seek to use these God-given qualities to make a positive impact in the world around you. Step out in faith, knowing that the One who fearfully and wonderfully made you will guide and equip you for the journey. Lastly, embrace self-acceptance and self-care. Let go of comparison and embrace the truth of your own identity. Celebrate your strengths and accept your weaknesses, knowing that God’s grace is sufficient. Take care of your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being, recognizing that you are a precious creation of the Divine. As you go forth from this devotional, let the truth of Psalm 139:13-14 shape your thoughts, actions, and interactions. May it remind you of your unique value, ignite a deeper sense of purpose, and foster a greater appreciation for the beauty of God’s creation, both in yourself and in others. Take a moment to pray and ask God for guidance and strength to live out these truths in your daily life. Seek His wisdom as you navigate your relationships, pursue your passions, and care for yourself. May the reality of being fearfully and wonderfully made by God be a constant source of inspiration and motivation as you walk in the fullness of who you were created to be. Remember, the journey of living out these truths is ongoing, so lean into God’s grace, trust His leading, and be open to the transformative work He desires to do in and through you.  

Hymn

 

How Great Thou Art

Verse 1: O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder Thy power throughout the universe displayed

Chorus: Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee How great Thou art, how great Thou art Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee How great Thou art, how great Thou art

Verse 2: When through the woods and forest glades I wander And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze

Chorus: Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee How great Thou art, how great Thou art Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee How great Thou art, how great Thou art

Verse 3: And when I think that God, His Son not sparing Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing He bled and died to take away my sin

Chorus: Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee How great Thou art, how great Thou art Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee How great Thou art, how great Thou art

Verse 4: When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart Then I shall bow in humble adoration And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!

ABOUT OUR MINISTRY

We are a non-denominational Bible-believing Christian ministry trained and equipped at the Christian Leaders Institute. Even though our ministry is based on God's Word, the Bible, you need to approach our teachings like the Bereans and always study the Bible yourself to see if what we teach is aligned with what is written in the Bible.  

Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. Acts 17:11 NIV  

We are only humans who 'stumble in many ways' (James 3:2) and we only 'know in part and we prophesy in part' (1 Corinthians 13:9).
