“I will praise thee; for l am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well! (Ps139:14)

God called David “a man after mine own heart” (Acts 13:22) and I can see why. David’s heart was so attuned to God and so free of the opinions of men that he was the Bible’s premier worshipper of God! He worshipped and danced with such force and freedom that he danced right out of his clothes! He laughed, he cried, and he even wrote some of the most exalted prose in human history. Yet when necessary, David was incredibly violent. He was one of the few military leaders in history who never lost a battle! And David celebrated his manhood better than anyone else. “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works and that my soul knoweth right well.” (Ps139:14)

David was the baby brother who was always left out of things. He wasn’t as big as his brothers, and he didn’t have any say in family matters because he was the “runt’ the last one in the litter. Despite his handicaps, David rose to the top. He learned about responsibility in those fields while he was alone with God. He wrote “when I became a man, I put away childish things” David’s failures not withstanding, he knew how to work himself back to the heart of his Maker. (T.D. Jakes)

PRAYER LINE: Praise like David “I will praise thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Thank You Jesus.
