The Psalmist said, “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” (Psalm 139:14) There is a lot packed into that simple verse. What does it mean to be fearfully and wonderfully made? Well, God’s Word translation puts it like this: “I will give thanks to you because I have been so amazingly and miraculously made. Your works are miraculous, and my soul is fully aware of this.”
What a powerful affirmation. I like to put it this way, “I thank you, God, for giving me a full awareness of your goodness, of what You have already done and what you are doing in me and in mankind now. Your work is amazing – the maximum of good – miraculous perhaps to a limited, human sense but perfectly natural and clear to me. I yield all my awareness to You and to your divine reality.”
Right there, you’ve got the divine law of Life. God is creating, protecting and maintaining each one of us, holding us secure and loved in life. Don’t allow any brutish mortal sense to bully you into being afraid for your life, or for the life of others. We can drop impairing and false fears.
As your prayer lifts you to view what God is doing right now for you and for all of His creation, you will witness more and more that God is Good and only good – not just good-sided, but divine Good itself, in all its substance and glory. And you will know and see yourself and those around you as you really are - amazing and wonderful – and that right well.
