Daily Devotional for Friday September 07, 2018


Psalms 139:14 – “I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well.” (NASB)


I just sat there. For years, I just sat there. Sometimes it was during break-time at work, or riding the bus, or waiting in line somewhere, but I just sat there. Some of us may be introverts making it an easy excuse not to do anything but sit there waiting for someone else to start. However, it can start with us. A simple hello can be the beginning of something we never thought of. If I had never said hello to a beautiful woman, I never would have married my wonderful wife. If I never said hello, I may never have met some of the amazing people in my life. Today's verse speaks of giving God thanks for being fearfully and wonderfully made. It may seem like we don't fit into the verse or that we don't believe that we are God's creation. We need to find the confidence in Christ to believe it, to live it, to have our souls know it very well. So if you find yourself just sitting there in life, try a simple hello to God and then to another person. You may just find that you are wonderfully made and people want to be around you. Confidence in Christ, it can make the difference between just sitting around and actually living life.
