Custom Made by God
Our great God and Savior knows everything, is everywhere, and is
The LORD God knows me because He made me, and since He made me, I am
responsible to Him for my actions. Thats
probably the biggest reason why people do not want to accept the fact that God created
man. But whether a person acknowledges the
facts about creation or not, he or she will still have to answer to Him personally.
The Psalmist David observed that the LORD God formed my inward
parts; You wove me in my mothers womb (Psalm 139:13). Our Creator not only created the first man Adam,
but He continues to create. There is not
another person on the face of this earth with the same genes, DNA, and chromosomes. I am a unique person, custom made by God for a
specific purpose in history. No one else can
fulfill that purpose in history; no one else can fulfill my purpose.
Gods dealings with you and me are not a duplicate of His
dealings with anyone else in time and space. It
is unique to me because I am unique. There is
no one else like me. A person who wants to be
something different from Gods purpose for him is like a cancer cell. We become like
cancer cells in the body of Christ when we want to be like someone else and not what God
wants us to be. God deals with each child
differently. We do not trust Him when we ask
that our experience duplicate someone elses. No
one is inferior or unspiritual because his or her experience is not just like someone
Thank God that you are who you are. His resources have already been revealed in creating you. "I will give thanks to You, for I am
fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very
well" (Psalm 139:14). Have
you thanked God for making you just the way you are?
"My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And
skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there
was not one of them " (Psalm 139:15-16).
I worship a God who knows me and is near me. He created me for today. There is only one me. I am a pattern that God will never use again. In all the time to come, there will never be
another me. I am somebody. I am a unique
creation of God. Therefore, I must be found
doing the will of God. My responsibility is
not to seek the praise of men, but to be what God made me.
Have you considered who you are in Gods eyes? Have you in humility thanked Him for making you so
wonderfully complex? The Lords work is
The Psalmist catches his breath and declares, How precious also
are your thoughts to me, O God! How vast the
sum of them! (v. 17). How weighty are your designs (NAB). How immeasurable your concepts are
(R. K. Harrison). How hard it is to
grasp your thoughts (Jerusalem Bible). How
deep I find Your thoughts (NEB). How
precious and weighty! (Amplified Bible).
How odd that in our day the U. S. government and
the politically correct no longer refer to the unborn child as a baby.
The fact is no one likes to think about killing an unborn baby so it has
been renamed a fetus or an embryo or human tissue. God said it is His
creation fearfully and wonderfully made. It is a baby custom made by
The LORD said to Jeremiah, Before I formed you in the womb I
knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to
the nations (Jer. 1:5). Each one of us is custom made by God.
