You Are a God-Made Marvel

All you have made will praise you, O Lord.
                            —Psalm 145:10

The Houston Museum of Natural Science features an exhibit of life-size specimens of the human anatomy, detailing the functioning of each body part: an animated model of the working of the brain, heart, kidneys, and more.

“Oh, that marvel of conception . . . What a miracle of skin and bone, muscle and brain! You gave me life . . . You watched and guarded every breath I took” (Jb 10:10–12).

If you live the average lifespan, your lungs will inhale oxygen-enriched air eight hundred million times before you check out. And your heart, which weighs a half pound and pumps five quarts of blood through your body every sixty seconds, will beat 2.8 billion times before you shut down.

You “have been remarkably and wonderfully made” (Ps 139:14).

God did what he did
to make you what you are.
