Who Am I?
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:14)
Who am I? Oh Lord, what wonderful and beautiful things have you put in each of us which are screaming and dying to get out to express your glory and the depth of our gratefulness and need of you? It’s true! Each of us are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” We are handcrafted in Your image.
“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?” (Psalm 8:3-4)
Who am I? Who are we that the One and Only who has made everything from nothing knows our names and, in fact, every hair on our heads? Who are we that You care for us and perfectly love us?
“He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.” (Psalm 18:16-19)
Who am I? The Perfect rescuing the imperfect! The Holy healing the broken! The Way guiding Home the lost! The Truth enlightening the deceitful! The Life breathing His perfect existence into the dead!
“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:17-18)
Who am I? Weak, damaged, and crushed is humankind. But yet, the One who has always been Holy, 100% pure, came to us, as us, to restore our brokenness. The One with no darkness or flaw came to sit in the mud with humankind to enable our healing.
“He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.’” (Psalm 46:10)
Who am I? In the midst of all the world’s sinful distractions and all my self-absorbed thoughts and actions, we are given this personal, Divine Invitation, God calling to me, to stop and focus on Him.
