Have you ever heard someone referred to as one in a million? Normally, when such a phrase is employed, it is used to describe someone with unique abilities, qualities and character. It speaks of value and the recognition that this person possesses something that is very rare and hard to come by.
Defined by Excellence
The Bible teaches that we were all specifically crafted and uniquely formed by God while within our mothers' wombs, and He was actively engaged in perfecting every detail of our lives.
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance being yet unformed. And in Your book they were all written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them (Ps 139:13-16).
Notice the words used to describe our creation:
Fearfully - In the original Hebrew language this word conveys the concept of something which provokes a response of awe, wonder and reverence.
Wonderfully - This word is translated from a Hebrew word that communicates the idea of something being distinct, separate or distinguished among others.
Marvelous - This Hebrew word is very similar to the previous word translated wonderfully above in both pronunciation and spelling. Whereas the previous Hebrew word was palah, the word used here is pala and basically means the same as the previous word but with the emphasis of being extraordinary and surpassingly marvelous.
Skillfully - This is a very interesting word in the Hebrew. It conveys the sense of a craftsman skillfully weaving, embroidering and crafting a very intricate design of needlework. It conveys the idea of great detail and complexity, sort of like a great painter or designer who shows great attention to detail.
