Marvelously Made

Written by Boyd Bailey

Marvelously Made… “Ears that hear and eyes that see—the Lord has made them both. Proverbs 20:12

Our bodies are marvelously made, which means we have a marvelous Maker. How could there be such precision and complexity, without a supreme Creator in Christ? The human body is grand evidence for Almighty God. We are created by God, and we are created for God. The Almighty is the architect of our flesh, so our actions reflect Him. “Does he who implanted the ear not hear? Does he who formed the eye not see?” (Psalm 94:9).

Our feet are designed to walk by faith down familiar and unfamiliar paths of righteousness. Our eyes keep an eye on eternity, always aware of the Almighty’s accountability. Our ears listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit and obey His commands. Our hands are quick to serve others in the name of Jesus Christ. Your body is a billboard for belief in the Lord, so take care to present Christ with correct and consistent conduct.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” (Psalm 139:14). Every muscle, nerve and fiber of our being is bold to proclaim praise to its Creator for His creation. It is in wonder and awe that a child of God worships in thanks for His grand plan, the body. You witness the gestation of life in the womb of a loved one, and your instincts feel instructed by God. He originates life and determines death. All parts of my frame my Heavenly Father has fashioned and formed.

Therefore, exclaim with adoration and thanksgiving to God for the beauty of His beings. Your body is a testament to the truth of His existence. Use it to point others to Jesus. Abuse it, and you poorly manage your Makers physical phenomena. Your body is a bold exclamation of eternal consequences. Thus, how can I use my body, so others better understand Christ? Does my body take me to places and people pleasing to Him? “But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear” (Matthew 13:6).
