Reclaiming Psalm 139 from the Clutches of Coffee Cups and Picture Frames

It's Not about You, It's about God

"I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made." (Psalm 139:14)

In this video, Jen Wilkin seeks to reclaim Psalm 139 from the cheesy t-shirts, coffee mugs, and picture frames that so often come to mind when thinking about this important passage of Scripture.

Rather than focusing on what this particular psalm says about us, Wilkin helps us prioritize it's life-giving message about God. Walking through the passage verse-by-verse, Wilkin highlights the infinite glory of our God—a God who is (thankfully) unlike us in key ways and yet still remains near to us in our weakness and times of need. In doing so, Wilkin helps us avoid making much of ourselves, encouraging us to instead focus on making much of our great God.
