::Devotional:: ‘Created In His Image’

January 10, 2011

In the past week, my entire world has changed as my wife Leigh Ann and I welcomed our son Maverick into this world on January 2nd at exactly 8:00 am.  I’ve spent the past few days in constant awe of everything he does, even down to his sneezes and dirty diapers.  Just to think that God enabled my wife and I to contribute to the creation of such a beautiful little boy is enough to keep me pondering for years and years.  Every intricate detail of my son’s development over the past nine months was completely controlled by God himself.  He literally created Maverick and the Bible says He did so in his own image.

The Bible says that God created man from the dirt and breathed life into him.  From then on, man has been created in the womb of the woman, but the breath of life has still been given by God.  Consider the words of David in Psalm 139.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  Psalm 139:13-14

As I celebrate my 31st birthday today, I am truly thankful for the love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness the Lord has revealed and lavished upon me.  Most recently, of course, He has displayed this with the blessing of a firstborn son.  I stand in awe of the creator and the author of life this morning, reminding myself that God is sovereign over all.
