HEROES WORSHIP! I WILL PRAISE YOU, FOR I AM FEARFULLY AND
WONDERFULLY MADE (PSALM 139:14)

When I was a kid, I had a hero: Peter Maravich, a
high-scoring basketball player who handled the ball like a magician.

Problem was, my desire to be like Pistol Pete blocked my
satisfaction with who God made me to be. When I realized I could never play
like Pete, I grew discouraged. I even quit my college team briefly because I
couldn’t measure up to the Maravich standard.

Kids still do that kind of things. They grow unhappy with
who God made them to be because they measure themselves by their “perfect”
heroes.

Christian singer Jonny Diaz recognized this and wrote a song
called “More Beautiful You.” The song begins: “Little girl fourteen flipping
through a magazine; says she wants to look that way.” Some young girls wish
they could be like Disney star Selena Gomez or another star the way I wanted to
be like Maravich. Diaz sings, “There could never be a more beautiful you; don’t
buy the lies……; you were made to fill a purpose that only you could do.” Diaz
is saying what another songwriter said under the inspiration of God thousands
of years ago: “[We are] fearfully and wonderfully made”. (Ps. 139:14).

God made us the way He wants us to be. Believe it! There
could never be a more beautiful you- Dave Branon

Lord, we are Yours,
You are our God;

We have been made so
wondrously;

This human frame in
every part

Your wisdom, power,
and love we see

We are beautiful
masterpieces designed by God!

May God Almighty Our Heavenly Father
prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend them from all their enemies in Jesus
Christ Name, Amen!
