Wednesday Wallpaper: Star Names

Scriptures: Psalms 147:1-6
by Jacob Abshire on September 2, 2015

Shhh … the stars are saying something. God’s wisdom and power is beyond measure. It is fitting for us to recognize and praise His loftiness. In this postexilic psalm, the Jews were celebrating the rebuilding of Jerusalem and God’s unending involvement in their nation. He had gathered them back from exile and returned them to their land where He dwells.

God invests in the lives of His people because all creation was made by Him and no intricate piece in this vast formation is beyond His understanding. As we look up at the stars at night, we should remember the Lord’s involvement in this world. Like the stars, He knows each of us more than we know ourselves. He lifts up the humble.

“Praise the LORD! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting. The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the outcasts of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names. Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure. The LORD lifts up the humble; he casts the wicked to the ground.”

Psalm 147:1-6
