He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.
+ Psalm 147:3-5
God calls each of the stars by their own name. Each star. By name, like friends do.
In our galaxy, there are over 200 billion stars. Right now, there are about 7 billion people alive. It’s estimated that 107 billion people have lived on earth since its creation.
God knows each star by name, but He also knows each person by name, however far away they feel they are from Him, because His understanding has no end and His love endures forever.
Lord, like the stars, you know each of us by name. Thank you for knowing us, understanding us, and loving us. Thank you for seeing when we’re brokenhearted and binding our wounds.
