You Are Special

‘I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.’ Psalm 139:14 NKJV

Sarah Hupp writes: ‘Did you know you started out as a single cell, and within that cell was enough DNA to hold the equivalent of 1,000 volumes of coded blueprints? Or that this DNA determined the colour of your hair and eyes, the shape of your nose, and the size of your ring finger? Did you know nobody else has your fingerprints… the same sparkling eyes… the same laugh… or looks at things the way you do? You’re an original, and it didn’t happen by accident. God designed your DNA. He made you the way He wanted you to be. He gave you your voice, your smile, your freckles, your curly hair, all those things that make you who you are. And because God made you, you’re special to Him and to others… in fact, the world wouldn’t be complete without you.’

No wonder the psalmist said, ‘I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvellous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.’ Maybe you’re thinking, ‘Yeah, but you don’t know the limitations I live with. And when it comes to my self-image, I struggle every day to feel like I measure up.’

Pastor Jim Penner says: ‘I’ve talked with and prayed for many who are dealing with physical issues… disease, diabetes, cancers, struggles with weight, muscular and autoimmune disease. The limitations the human family deals with on a daily basis are endless. Yet Ephesians 2:10 says, “You are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus.” God knew exactly what He was doing when He made you. You’re unique in all the world. And that makes you special.’
