Words from the Heart for Wednesday October 28th, 2020
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14 (NIV)
Fearfully and Wonderfully Made
King Henry VII of England referred to the land discovered by John Cabot in 1497 as the “New Found Launde.” It’s likely that name Labrador came from Joas Fernandez, the Azorean known as “El llavorador”, an explorer on the Corte-Real’s expedition in 1500. The area of Labrador includes all the northern islands in the region. The province officially became Newfoundland and Labrador in December 2001 when an amendment was made to the Constitution of Canada. All of this helped make Canada the country it is today.
It is likely that you have been overwhelmed at times by God’s creation. It is impossible to not be awed by the grandeur of the mountains and the infinity of space. We often ponder the majestic things of God’s creation. But there is just as much that points to the wonder of God’s creative power in the smaller things. I have a surgeon friend who told me he sees the glory of God’s creative genius every time he looks inside a human body. The Bible speaks about this in Psalm 139:14: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” David understood that at the heart of humanity is the touch of God’s creative genius. The human body is an incredible piece of creativity. From the tiniest part of your DNA, to what you see in the mirror, God has designed every part of you – your body, mind and spirit. He knows you intimately, and you can trust Him with whatever you need. You can pour out your heart to your loving Creator and you can trust Him with your life.
These have been words from the heart.
