Lesson 14        Week of December 10th

God's Providence Over Human Life  

  • God sovereign over the life-forming work in the womb
  • Praise is due to God, for all people are fearfully and wonderfully made.
  • Those with disabilities are created purposefully by God for His glory.
  • God has appointed the length of our days; He is sovereign over death.

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. -Psalm 139:13–14

  1. Genesis 29:31
  2. Genesis 30:22
  3. Exodus 4:11
  4. Psalm 139:13-16
  5. John 9:17
  6. 1 Corinthians 4:7



God is sovereign over forming of human life, uniquely fashioning each baby in the womb.  God makes no mistakes in the wonderful way in which He makes us .  We are the work of God's creative hands--carefully planned and wonderfully made.  God made each one of us in the way that is best for us.

Whenever we take credit for God's creative work, fail to thank Him for His goodness, or look down on His creative work in another person, we sin and insult our creator.  Children with disabilites are God's fearful and wonderful creations, sovereignly and purposefully made for His glory.  Those with disabilites can display God's glory in unique ways, as God is glorified in weakness by those who depend on Him and radiate His joy in suffering.  Their identity is not their disability; the greatest identity they could have is to be a child of God.

 With you child, thank God for the way He has uniquly and wonderfully fashioned him or her.  Pray that your family will bring glory to God as a reflection of His goodness and by the way you accept the weakness of others.


Read Psalm 139 with your child.  Tell your son or daughter about when he or she was born.
  • Where do they see evidences that you are "fearfully and wonderfully"  made?
  • Do you see God's work in your life as good?
 Discuss what each of you would to change about yourself or your life.  Help your child see if these are God-glorifying growth areas, or if they are self-serving and/or reflect a desire for recognition.  Then, help him or her choose one growth area and ask God to help your child grow in that area.  Parents, continue to pray for your child and look for ways to encourage God-glorifying growth in his or her life. .



During application time, each student was asked to decide on a personal response to what was learned.  After recording this step below, discuss how your child can apply this response to his or her life this week.


God is PRESENT and ACTIVE in all His creation.

          His EYE is watching, His HAND is working.
     to uphold all creation.
             to fulfill all His purposes
                       for His glory
