Psalm 139 (Part 3 of 5)

Creation. It’s a remarkable thing! Whether you’re watching a loaf of bread rising, creating a lego fortress, waiting for a baby to be born, or trying to figure out a stubborn part in your car. Creation is all around us. What amazes me is our human brains, and the fact that we are each made so uniquely individual. Doctors cannot even begin to understand how the human mind works–and then we try to understand the Lord! All I know is this: We will neverever understand how the Lord works! His ways are incomprehensible! Psalm 139:13-16

13 For it was You who created my inward parts;
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You
because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made.
Your works are wonderful,
and I know this very well.
15 My bones were not hidden from You
when I was made in secret,
when I was formed in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw me when I was formless;
all my days were written in Your book and planned
before a single one of them began.

Question 3: What has God created you for?

When I ask this question, I am really referring to your gifts and talents. What is something that you are naturally good at? What is something that you have learned to be good at?

Now once you have these ideas in your head, think about it. How are you using these abilities? Are you praising God with them?

What are some miracles that you see daily? I personally get so involved in my own little world that I often forget to stop and realize that it was my heavenly Father who made me how I am. So instead of wishing I was more talented, or acted like that person, or looked like my best friend, I need to stop and consider. Why am I who I am? Where has God placed me today? How can I be an example of Jesus to others?

Look back at the questions at the beginning of this section. How are you using your talents for the Lord?
