Psalm 139:14 is among the most quoted verses in the book of Psalms. However, not all really know what this verse really means. In this post, let me share with you 5 lessons for you to understand Psalm 139:14!
There are a lot of important lessons we can learn from our verse for the day. You can even turn it into a full Psalm 134:14 sermon because of the rich lessons it possesses.
Psalm 139:14 tells us:
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
This beautiful and inspiring verse gives us a glimpse of God’s creative work. He created us in a fearful and wonderful manner. Among God’s creation, it is only us that God personally made. He went down from His throne on high and step down to gather dirt and soil to form His most special creation.
God’s creation of man is intimate, personal, and most importantly, special. We are the pinnacle of God’s creation and that means that you and it comes with a great purpose.
So, here are the five Psalm 139:14 lessons you should learn today.
Lesson no. 1: God’s wisdom is infinite
The Bible tells us that we are created fearfully and wonderfully. As what we have already read, it takes great wisdom, I would say, supernaturally wisdom and massive creative power beyond our imagination for a Being to create such a magnificent design.
Our human body, from the smallest subatomic unit to its biggest organ, is made with such intricate precision and complex design to support life.
No doubt: God is beyond our wildest imagination. His ability is beyond us and is able to perform whatever He wishes. He is sitting on His Majestic Throne on High and at the same time, play out His plan to bring as many children as possible to His Kingdom.
Lesson no. 2: Humans are not the product of evolution
It is really not the lack of evidence that is causing people to abandon their faith or deny the existence of God. The true reason is that people willfully ignore the evidence. If you have eyes to see, you will find a world of wonders that shouts the existence of an Intelligent Maker.
The human body, among the many amazing wonders on earth, is just a living testimony of the creative works of our heavenly Father. The human body is super complicated beyond words to simply just evolve from a single cell organism in a primordial soup.
When you consider all scientific facts and studies, you will arrive at the conclusion that the universe is far complex to be a product of random evolution. Indeed, it takes more faith in believing evolution than creation.
Lesson no. 3: God created you
Life is a miracle. Your very existence is a miracle itself. The problem with us is that we get too accustomed to miracles that we don’t take the time to appreciate them anymore.
Genesis 1:26-27 tells us:
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness” … So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
I want you to remember that God created you. Because of that, you are unique, special, and most importantly, have a purpose in life.
Don’t let other people or Satan tell you otherwise. Nobody’s ugly, worthless, or not good enough. You are the child of the Living God and in your veins run the blood of a person created by God.
But what if you have birth defects? Are you still a fearfully and wonderfully made person?
This is a hard question to answer especially for people who have birth defects or those people whose loved ones suffer from this medical condition.
However, let me tell you. Even if you have birth defects, it doesn’t change the fact that you are still a child of God. Yes, it’s hard to understand why you are in a certain situation, that life seems to be unfair. I too, don’t have all the answers in the world.
In God’s time, we will know the answer, but don’t let your birth defects be the cause of losing faith and hope. Instead, use it as a way to learn the lessons God wants you to learn. God won’t give you a problem you can’t handle.
This might be a cliché, but still, I will say it: just trust God and He will make all things beautiful in His time.

Lesson no. 4: We praise and worship our Creator
In the realization of how awesome our human bodies are and how impressive the creation is, we must bow down in humble adoration to God’s majesty.
Like David, when he knew that he was fearfully and wonderfully made, he praised God! He recognized how marvelous God’s creation is.
God obviously doesn’t need our praise. He is not a narcissist who lives on flattery and adulation.
We need to worship God for our own sake. When we praise God, it helps us to remember that YAHWEH is our great Provider. He is the Source of all good things that we have.
When we worship God, it helps us appreciate our great dependence on Him and His authority over us. We submit to His will and do our best to fulfill His purpose in our lives.
Lesson no. 5: God is our Father
Do you know what’s really amazing that you should never forget?
It is that God is our Father.
King David knew that we are created in the image of God and that we are His children.
It is comforting to note that God is truly our Father who takes care of us. He provides all our needs. He protects us, heals us, comforts us, listens to us, guides us, and most importantly, loves us.
God already knew us even before we were born. He wanted to build a close relationship with us. He already knew us intimately. Now, it is our turn to know Him deeper and better each day.
These are just some of the best lessons we can learn from Psalm 139:14. Indeed, we are fearfully and wonderfully made. This shows us how special we are in the sight of God.
No matter what problems you go through, just remember that God is your Father. He won’t leave you nor forsake you. He is always there to help us in times of needs, comfort us in times of suffering, and rejoice with us in times of our joy.
Because God loves us, we need to use this knowledge to encourage us and move us even closer to our Father. By doing so, we will then be able to experience the love and joy of God’s outpouring care for us.
