“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 are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:13-14)
So… we know that God created the world. But for whom did He create it? For us! You and me and a whole bunch of other people! In the children’s song below, I share the simple truths inspired by Psalm 139:
God made me
He made me wonderfully
He put me together carefully
God made me!
God made you
He made you special too
He knew all you would say and do
God made you!
When the world was first created, the best thing was that it was perfect, and so were the first two people, briefly. After the sixth day of creation, we find, “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” (Genesis 1:31) God loved the ones He created. He knew that they would make poor decisions and sin, but He chose to create them anyway. He wanted a relationship with them and He actually entered the world He made for them. Genesis 2 records that God talked with Adam, gave him instruction, brought him the animals to name, and provided him with a suitable mate. Genesis 3 tells us that God walked in the garden, looking for Adam and Eve, talking with them. His plan was to be with the people He created.
Remember these truths. God created you and knows you. He knows your name and everything about you. He hears your call, your cry, and your concerns. He waits for you to seek Him and when you do, He runs to you with open arms, welcoming you into a relationship with Him!
Today’s Thought: God made you and desires to have a relationship with you.
