Nancy and I read the Psalms each evening. Last night we read this text in psalm 147:4-5: “[God] determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; His understanding has no limit.”
We stopped reading for a moment. Think of it! Of the bazillion stars in the universe, God has given EACH ONE a name. That one over there is Jennifer. This one here is Juan. Those next to Juan are Chaim and Abby and Heather, and Ruth.
Our God, whom Christians know as our Father, knows every single one of them and he follows their courses moment by moment through the universe.
And yet there is more. Much more.
Besides the stars flung into space, our Father is so intimate with you and me that He knows how many hairs on our head fall out each day, and how many grow back. He has them all numbered moment by moment.
Oh yes, God is the original, greatest, and limitless multitasker. And we wonder if God knows our name, and where we live, and what we need.
