Psalm 139: Wonderfully Made

Tuesday, February 27, 2018

This is such an intimate and beautiful song of praise. Why do we hide? Why do we think that God cannot see or hear us? Why do we fear? Why do we believe that God does not tend to us?

We are God’s amazing, wonderful, beautiful works of art. Let us together praise God for the willingness to enter into intimacy with us. We reflect on varying versions of Ephesians 2:10.

God has made us what we are, and in our union with Christ Jesus he has created us for a life of good deeds, which he has already prepared for us to do. (GNT)

We are made in God’s image, made in love, to respond in love to all that confronts us.

For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life. (NRSV)

We are one in the Spirit with God’s fidelity sustaining us. We are one in God’s hope bolstering us. We are one in God’s love healing us.

For we are of God’s making, created in union with the Messiah Yeshua for a life of good actions already prepared by God for us to do. (CJB)

We are God’s work of art. Coalescing in a reflection of God’s diversity. Ebbing and flowing in the Spirit that abides and transforms.

He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing. (MSG)

This is such an intimate and beautiful song of praise. Why do we hide? Why do we think that God cannot see or hear?

We are wonderfully, amazingly and beautifully made in and by and through God. Let us do all that we can to come together in Christ.
