Wonderfully Made!

13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
    and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
    Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
    as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
    before a single day had passed.

Psalm 139:13-16, NLT

Do you know and rest in the One who created you? It is a peace-giving kind of life, where we offer ourselves grace and are amazed by our Savior.

I don’t think I know and rest in my Creator as often as I should. But I definitely need some of this grace and peace-giving kind of lifestyle as a child of the Most High God! He is so good. He has uniquely made each and every one of us. And running to Him is where I will find the most appreciation for how He has made me – flaws and all.

I love how this chapter highlights my Savior as Creator of all things – especially me. When I rest a little more in how my God has made me, I think it will reap the effect of showing myself more grace.

It isn’t about legalism, just enjoying where my Savior Jesus Christ has me… and being willing to accept that not everything will be 90% put together. Things won’t be perfect, but I can be His – and grow in who He has made me to be – with each and every day.

He has made each of us fearfully and wonderfully. That nose you can’t stand? The Lord loves. Those big feet that won’t shrink? The Lord loves those as well.

We are forever His when we put our trust in our Savior Jesus Christ.

We can quit keeping score of how many times we have messed up today – and enjoy our Savior Jesus Christ instead!
