Psalm 139:14 says: “I am fearfully and wonderfully made … wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well.” Here is a word of genuine, Biblical self-esteem. GOD made us, “wove” us in our mother’s womb (:13). We are “wonderfully made.” His works are “wonderful” – therefore, Biblical Christians should understand that because God has created them, they are WONDERFUL!
Here is the logic spelled out in a syllogism:
— God’s works are wonderful.
— God made me.
— Therefore, I am wonderful!
NOW: it is important that all of this be kept in a humble, Biblical balance. There has been too much promulgation in America of a gospel of “self-esteem” which is not Biblical. However, this does not negate the truth we find in this scripture. Each of us is indeed fearfully and wonderfully made by God. Undoubtedly, no small number of people today really need to hear this word: “God has made you; therefore you are wonderful!”
