“Truly you have formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother's womb. I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made!" Psalm 139:13-14
This is one of my favorite verses. We can see the love God has for us when we consider how careful He was in designing our home, the earth. The size of the earth is so perfect to sustain life with gravity holding a thin 50 mile layer of gases. Just a little smaller or larger, and the earth would not have the atmosphere needed for animals, and plants to live. The earth is also a perfect distance from the sun so we won’t burn up nor freeze. There are so many other details that our Creator was so fussy about just so we would have this amazing planet to live on.
And how about our bodies? Truly, we are all fearfully, wonderfully made! I am always in awe at how God was very particular when He formed us in our mother's womb.
Even the hairs on our head are counted! Our eyelashes and eyebrows serve a purpose- they protect our eyes from dust and sweat and other foreign objects.
And the philtrum, the inconspicuous indentation above our upper lip, allows us more lip movement than if we did not have it! Then there’s the nose which serves as a filter, heater and humidifier! And one of the most amazing parts of our body is our skin, which we can clean up when we dirty it. When we look at a baby, we marvel at how God took great care in forming him or her, down to the cute miniature fingers and toes! Indeed, how can we doubt the love God has for each of us?
