God Made Me Unique

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are thy works, and that my soul knoweth right well." (Psalm 139:14)

The Browning family has five children. Each one of them is different from the others. No one looks exactly like another, and no two have the same personality. One is a bookworm who could spend hours reading and thinking about reading. One is athletic and loves to bake. Another is shy and enjoys making up new games to play. One talks really fast and has a silly sense of humor. The littlest one, who is adopted, seems to love everyone. Each child is unique, and their parents love each one of them. No family is the same as another family, and no one person is the same. Being unique but yet also part of a united group is one of the things that is so special about the family. That is how God created families to be.

We believe that kids are different from each other, but what about animals – even tiny ones, like ants? Have you ever seen a long trail of ants? Do they all look identical (exactly alike) to you? Did you know that each of those ants is different from the others? God made each of them unique. Or snowflakes: Have you ever watched snow fall? The flakes flutter down onto the windshield of a car or onto the ground. Some flakes are big, and some are small, but every single one of those snowflakes is unique – none of them are alike.

Do you think the differences among people, ants, and snowflakes happened by chance? Not a chance! We have a powerful, awesome God Who has created everything. Each of us has been created unique. Not one of us is exactly like another person. Even if you are an identical twin, you are different from your twin. It may be that your hair is thinner, or you are slightly taller, or perhaps your teeth are straight but your twin's are not.

God made each of the Browning kids unique. And God made you unique! The Bible says we are all "fearfully and wonderfully made." God knows everything about you. He knows the number of hairs on your head – even if a few of them get pulled out somehow! He knows when you do right and when you do wrong. It takes an awesome, all-powerful God to create so many unique individuals and to know them so closely and personally.

Your awesome God made you unique.

My Response:
» What does God know about me that no one else knows?
» Do I praise Him for being the all-powerful, all-knowing Creator that He is?

Description of God

Who Healeth all Thy Diseases
Psalm 103:3 "Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;"

 

Question & Answer

QWhat does it mean to love God and others?

AIt means to help, be kind, unselfish, and want the best for those around you just as Jesus did. Phil 2:3-4 -- Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

 

BIG Christian Word

Glorification – (glor-ih-fih-KAY-shun)

The Biblical word "glorification" means that each believer will one day be given a perfect resurrected body like Christ's. Those who trust Christ will experience victory over the death that was caused by the fall of Adam and Eve. 1 Corinthians 15:26 – "The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death."
