Psalm 139:14

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
  Wonderful are your works;
  my soul knows it very well.

(ESV)
I praise you!

David finally says it, as should we all.  It has been building through this chapter, kind of like a thick liquid coming to a boil.  You can see the place where the bubble is starting to rise, and then finally it is too much pressure on the inside and it pops.  The same thing here.  When you begin to discuss these amazing attributes of God, just how big He is, how He is everywhere, how He knows all things... And then you bring it down to the closeness and personal touch He has on every life... The praise comes out, or at least it should.

David states here, after his bubble pop of praise, that the way we are made is amazing.  He describes it as "fearful" and "wonderful".  And this knowledge has made it into his very soul.

May you, today, allow the knowledge of God sink down to your soul.
