“I have redeemed you. I have called you by your name.
You are mine.” Isaiah 43:1
The One who created the heavens and earth, by the command of his voice and touch of a finger, knows each of our names.💛 Genesis 1:16 reminds us, “God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also.”
It always makes me smile when I read, “He made the stars also;” as if they were an after thought and not important. My mind can’t even comprehend how easy it was for Almighty God to bring forth the magnificence and beauty of ALL the stars and constellations. Though, lesser brilliant, still the handiwork of God’s finger and containing all His glory.
“Lift up your eyes on high And see who has created these stars, The One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power, Not one of them is missing.” Isaiah 40:26
As I look out into the night sky at all the twinkles that stretch as far as my eyes can see, I am amazed that God calls them each by name and He knows where they ALL are located. Not one of them is missing!My thoughts go to the heart cry of David in Psalm 8:3-9. One who is acquainted with spending nights under a blanket of stars as a shepherd boy. The Psalmist now declaring the greatness of the Lord with humility and reverence for his grace bestowed on us,
“When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
and the son of man that you care for him?”
What amazing love God has for each of us that He even took us into consideration when creating the brilliancy of the heavens. He gave us eyes to see and cared about our comfort to provide and give us liberty over all the land.
God, with just a word formed light (setting every star in place, day and night, sun and moon, planets, and every expanse of light) making a way for us to look upward and see the work of His hands. To gaze upon the heavens in awesome wonder to all that belongs to Him (Psalm 115:16). A reminder of His love for mankind and how much more His gaze is upon us.
I hope this has encouraged your heart as much as it did mine!?! We all need reminders along the journey to strengthen our hearts and keep us focused on how much we are known and loved by God. His gaze is always on us!! 🙂
