Perhaps there is no other place in the universe that shows the power of God (His omnipotence) as the human body. With over 3 trillion bits of DNA information in our bodies and the capacity to have a relationship with our Creator in worship, we can say with David, “How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!” (Psalm 139:17). There is no other part of creation that has the “image” and “likeness” of God (Genesis 1:26).
God the Creator knew us even before the cells in our bodies came together to form its members. In fact, God saw them before they formed and wrote them in His book, “every one of them, when as yet there was none of them” (139:16). That alone is cause for worship! Though medical technology has made huge strides toward giving us insight into the marvelous construction of our bodies, it cannot do what our Creator could see before we were formed in our mother’s womb. Then, His act of creation was to ‘knit [caused to grow] us together in our mother’s womb.’
While theories abound about our existence, we must turn to Scripture about God’s purpose for being made by Him. There is no other part of creation that God formed and then “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and then man became a living creature (soul)” (Genesis 2:7). This gave mankind the capacity to worship; so that we “might be to the praise of His glory” (Ephesians 1:12).
The challenge you and I have is whether we see ourselves as “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). When we begin to understand such an amazing design and purpose, it changes the way we look at ourselves. We were not made to fulfill our own pleasures and desires, but those of our Creator, “who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen! (Romans 9:5).
