Quote from the book, "You Matter to God."
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my
mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and
wonderfully made; your works [specifically, his physical body]
are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame [or my physical
body] was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me
were written in your book before one of them came to be.
These are two beautiful words—fearful and wonderful. David tells us that the marvel of God’s creation in the human body is fearful, “awe-ful,” full of awe, awe-inspiring.
It blesses me to think that God had a secret place where He made our frame—that it was a kind of secret that He was keeping hidden until He could reveal it. In addition, David says that he was “woven together in the depths of the earth.” That is a staggering thought. We read that at Creation God formed man of the dust, or the clay, so we know the physical body
comes from the earth. But I understand David’s words here to mean that God carefully prepared, in the earth, the various constituent elements that were going to form the human body.
God has a plan for the human body that originates in eternity. He carefully prepared the elements of its composition, and He has a program for every day of our lives. That is a staggering thought, isn’t it? It should give us a very different concept of what our bodies mean to God.
