“God Made You” – A Good Word from Jerry Bridges

Here is a great quote related to Psalm 139:14, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made” – by Jerry Bridges from his Book Trusting God in Chapter 11:

“David praised God, not because he was handsome, but because God made him. We need to dwell on that thought. The eternal God who is infinite in His wisdom and perfect in His love personally made you and me. He gave you the body, the mental abilities, and the basic personality you have because that is the way He wanted you to be just that way because He loves you and wants to glorify Himself through you.”
