This is a reality. It does not mean what it does literally considering the word 'fearfully'. The word as used in the text refers to "reverence" and 'wonderful' refers to unique, beautiful, awesome. In other words, we are reverentially and uniquely made. It does not mean we are fearfully made as in, terrifying. God saw that his creation was beautiful. Therefore, as God sees us, we should also see ourselves as beautiful and handsome, with uniqueness and special talents.
