You Are a Miracle

I have written this Post about you. Well, truthfully it is about you, but I didn’t write it. You deserved a better biographer than I can write. It was written by your true author, the Lord. Enjoy all the nice things He has said about you.

“Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all  the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1: 26, 27)

“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
When I awake, I am still with You.”
(Psalm 139: 13 – 18)

Scripture teaches that you were created in the image of God. It reveals also  that God wove you together in the womb. You are, therefore, not a product of randomness or nature, but of God’s omnipotent handiwork. God crafted you in your mother’s womb to be a distinct individual. You owe your existence to Him and not to happenstance.

The fact that God knows and cares for children even in the womb means that God’s concern for life begins at conception. It means that God’s people have a responsibility to also know and care for children in the womb.

Psalm 139 teaches that God considers that is a person in the mother’s womb. In Scripture the Greek word “brephos” is used for a young child in the womb and as well as those already born. This evidences the sanctity of the lives of both.

You can confidently say, “For you have possessed my reins.” The word “reins” signifies the kidneys, which by the Hebrews were supposed to be the seat of the desires and longings; but  it indicates the most hidden and vital portion of the man; it is His own reins; God is as much at home there as a landlord on his own estate, or a proprietor in his own house. Figuratively this is that God shaped place in which only God fits, though others often seek to fill it with things.

Resolve to be the very best you, you were created with the ability to be.

You are indeed “fearfully and wonderfully made.”
