Psalm 139:14 (AMP)
I will give thanks and praise to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
Beloved, David wasn't simply praising God for his excellent appearance, personality, and abilities when he said, "You have made me wonderfully." He was referring to your underlying structure, the invisible parts of you that God meticulously crafted.
It's about how He arranged for the difficulties that you would experience, things that you believe would overwhelm you, yet out of nowhere, a strength springs up, a boldness comes on you, with faith to overcome it and a determination to stay strong and outlast the resistance. Because God designed you, you're stronger than you think. You have more endurance, stamina, and capacity for grace and forgiveness than you can imagine.
When something feels overwhelming, such as a loss, a setback, or a disappointment, don't whine and complain about it. When that happens, you get a snapshot of who you really are. There will be a level of perseverance, courage, and faith that you have never experienced before. If you keep the correct mindset, the pressure won't break you; instead, it will develop and make you stronger.
You will expand and mature, allowing you to ascend to higher levels and achieve more fantastic favor and influence.
Here's Today's Prayer
Good Morning our Beloved Transcendent Father.
Father God, You have entered our lives to serve as our Savior, our Provider, and our Healer. We thank You for making it clear that You are Jehovah Rapha and that it's Your will to heal and restore. We will put our faith in You to keep us resilient and energetic so that we can continually break new ground and stand on new territory. With all sincerity, we pray, in Jesus' Name, Amen and Aaamen.
