Psalm 139:14 says, “We are fearfully and wonderfully made.”
The writings of David in this particular psalm (Psalm 139:14) must have come out of some really deep revelation; and I must say it is a much-needed assurance for many of us as we go through life.
There is no denial that either publicly or privately, everyone wants to feel accepted by loved ones, peers, coworkers, our church family, etc. This feeling of acceptance gives us a sense of validation and self-worth.
But we forget that the only validation we need is from God and that our salvation and acceptance by Jesus shows that God has chosen us, loves us, is satisfied with us. The truth is that in God’s eyes, we are good, and He doesn’t care about what we have done. He accepts us.
8: For by grace are you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
We are explicitly told in the Bible that we have been accepted into the beloved
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world does not knows us, because it did not know Him.
God clearly says in Genesis 1:27, “We are made in His image.” so even though we have our imperfections, God still loves us dearly. We even see all kinds of people in the Bible who were not perfect, yet God still used them.
If God could use Moses who stuttered (Exodus 4:10), young David (I Samuel 17), Rehab (Joshua 2:1-7), Saul turned Paul (Acts 1:1-19), Gideon (Judges 6), Peter who was shy (Acts 2:14-36), and so many others who didn’t need the validation of man but God alone. Then God can equally use you to the extent you make yourself available for Him.
So just like the Psalmist, say to yourself every day that “I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
