A Great Illustration of How We are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made


When I worked as DCE of a church, I developed many of the activities for our Wednesday evening children’s classes.  I remember doing a session on Psalm 139:14 to help them get glimpse into the truth of how they are fearfully and wonderfully made by God..

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

They made outlines of themselves on a long roll of butcher paper cut to their size.  Then they drew hair, facial features, clothes, etc. to make it look like themselves.  They used these outlines in a variety of ways to drive home the truth and ultimately got to hang them on the wall as a reminder.  They only scratched the surface, however, of the truth of Psalm 139:14.

How Fearfully and Wonderfully Made Are We?

Here is a video excerpt of a message by Louie Giglio for us adults to get a little deeper into just how wonderfully we are made.  Be sure to watch, and not just listen, to the end.  If you, as a follower of Jesus Christ, can watch this video and not go away praising the Lord, I’m not sure what will convince you of how wonderfully and fearfully you are made.

What a wonderful illustration of how we are wonderfully made that also demonstrates spiritual realities of how God is able to hold us together even in the darkest of circumstances!  What does it stir up within you? … comfort?  hope? encouragement? … don’t forget praise!

  1. I have never seen or heard anything so powerful, or more encouraging than this. I wish the WHOLE WORLD could see this.
    Thank you so much for making it available.

    • You are most welcome, Joyce. I have the feeling there are many such phenomenon about the human body. How can we not praise Him?
