Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

In Psalm 139:13-14 we read, “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Let us study the thoughts of these verses for a few minutes.
I am impressed with the knowledge and wisdom of God, in his creative ability. David, no doubt, hit the nail on the head, when he said that we are fearfully and wonderfully made! The meticulous details of how our fleshly bodies are put together are astounding and amazing. When one studies the various organs and systems, of the human body, of how its all put together, of how it works, and of how it all works together, we have to stand in awe of our Creator. Just think, we have a respiratory system, a circulatory system, a digestive system, an immune system, we have the 5 senses, we have a nervous system, etc. Then there are thousands and thousands of details in the human body that science and medicine have discovered and learned over the years. Then consider the DNA molecule, that contains the genetic code of how to make a human body. It contains as much information as 1000 volumes of an encyclopedia. We must say with Paul in Romans 1:20, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” It takes a tremendous amount of faith to believe in evolution, that we are a product of blind chance and dumb luck. The human body is a strong testimony to our God and Creator. Would one believe that our cars were a product of chance and luck. That some sort of explosion took place at a factory, some place, and automobile just happen to be a byproduct, who could believe it? No, no, the concept of creation is much more logical and reasonable, because we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.”
