Psalm 147- He Calls Them By Name:
Praise the Lord!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful.
2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
4 He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name.
5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;
His understanding is infinite.
6 The Lord lifts up the humble;
He casts the wicked down to the ground.
7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
Sing praises on the harp to our God,
8 Who covers the heavens with clouds,
Who prepares rain for the earth,
Who makes grass to grow on the mountains. Psalm 147:1-8
The James Hubbell space telescope was launched in 1990 with the mission to unlock the mysteries of the universe. The images of deep space it has captured to-date have been stunning. I encourage you the visit the site at hubblesite.org to see the vast beauty and majesty that declare the glory of God.
Man’s desire to conquer the unknown and satisfy his insatiable appetite to seek his origins cannot be understated. But there are answers to these great mysteries that we can only presume to know through scientific means. Yet the answers we seek God already knows. If He knows the secrets of His creation and knows the names of the vast untold number of stars that populate the universe, why should it surprise us that He knows us by name and passionately cares for us. It is good to sing praises to our God.

“The heart of true faith is rooted in and guided by truth; truth established by God through the essence of His nature and His Word. Without His truth as revealed in the Bible, man can only stumble in his effort to know Him and be redeemed by Him.” M.P. Bramble
