God Created You According to His Plan

   

Psalm 139:14 "I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."

God created you just as He wanted you, with a loving purpose in mind.

When I was in elementary school, I didn't like the way my voice sounded. Sometimes at school we would have to read aloud and record our voices. I always hated having my recorded voice played back to me. Surely that couldn't be the way I really talked! I had such a quiet, babyish voice. How embarrassing!

What about you? Is there anything about yourself that you wish you could change—but can't? Let's think for a minute about Who made you the way you are.

Psalm 139 says that God formed you and wove you together in your mother's womb. Before anyone else even saw you, God knew all about you! He planned you; you were completely His idea. Before you were even born, God skillfully formed you exactly the way He wanted you to be.

There are some things about ourselves that we can change. But many things we can't. Have you accepted the fact that the way you look, the way you talk, your personality, or your health are all part of God's plan for your life? God made you exactly as you are, because He has a loving purpose in mind for you. His Word says that His creation of you is a reason for you to praise Him! Have you ever done that?

God created you just as He wanted you, with a loving purpose in mind.

Do I complain about the way God created me? Have I ever thanked Him for making me with such wisdom and skill?
