Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

God Made Me
by Charles R. Swindoll

You formed my inward parts; 
You wove me in my mother's womb.
I will give thanks to You, for I am 
fearfully and wonderfully made.
Psalm 139:13–14

The word formed literally means "originated or created." 

God reached into my life when I was merely a tiny embryo and began to shape me within. He originated me. He began to put me together while I was still in the soft silence of my mother's womb. It was there my "inward parts" were originated by God. . . .

The nine-month interweaving work of God included my likes and dislikes, my personality as well as my perspective on life. . . . As I analyze my body and see the way I have been put together, I join the psalmist in praise and gratitude to God, my Creator. . . .

Mother Nature didn't make me. Fate did not shape me, neither was I just a biological combination of mother and dad in a moment of sexual passion. Nor was I conceived through blind chance. 

You, God (and no other), made me!
