· Fearful – Definition 3 – full of awe or reverence, Definition 5 – extreme in size, intensity

Fearfully and wonderfully made, what does that mean?
Full of awe or reverence and simply amazing
Extreme in size or intensity and excellent, great, and marvelous
Hand crafted with love, made complete and delicately industrious
With all of these qualities, why do we not believe
That those dreams and visions God puts in us, we can achieve?
With all these characteristics, why do we dwell in self-doubt?
When God has already given us everything we need to work it all out?
We know that the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy
Why do we only take that literally and not as a figurative ploy?
He steals hope, kills dreams, and destroys belief in ourselves
And he takes our self-confidence and courage and puts them on bookshelves
How do we combat this from settling into our spirit?
How do we align ourselves with God and prevent becoming spiritually illiterate?
We say we know what the scripture says, but do we actually live it?
Or are we just professing and declaring, without really believing it?
Fearfully and wonderfully made, let’s talk about what that means
We are full of awe and reverence, and made to be simply amazing
By the most High’s hands, with tender loving care to be extreme and marvelous
Let’s start walking into the astonishing and intense future God predestined for us
Believe that you can, and watch how you will
For God has predestined it to be, even if some of the journey is uphill
Achievable doesn’t mean easy, for it took a lot to make us this way
Every up, down, turn, and do over is part of the achievable buffet
The goals, visions, and dreams are achievable because that’s what God called us to do
Take another look in the mirror and recognize the reflection looking back at you
The reflection of a child of the Most High, Sovereign, One and Only Holy King
The reflection of one who combats the enemy’s stealing, killing, and destroying
Remember, God’s word does not return back void
Which means, our marvelousness and fearfulness is not something we can avoid
If God believes that we can, because He created us to be and to do
Then walk into achievable, roll your sleeves up, do the work, and let the blessings accrue
Live out I CAN and watch I AM take its rightful place
For when living like it is achievable, you’re operating in God’s favor and God’s grace
When breathing life into achievable, the reflection you see takes on God’s view
Which, achievable to God, is a marvelous, intense, extreme in size, but reverent Holy stew
You are the one who created my innermost parts; you knit me together while I was still in my mother’s womb. I give thanks to you that I was marvelously set apart. Your works are wonderful—I know that very well. ~Psalm 139:13-14 (CEB)
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. ~Psalm 139:14 (KJV)
