This Scripture has always been a blessing to me. It speaks to my soul in great ways to know that the God who created the heavens and earth and the fullness thereof, did not create the heavens and the earth and abandon them.
The Lord is still active in His creation. So much so that He still has a count of the stars and calls all [each] of them by name.
Just look…behold all the stars! WOW!
Yea, I know that man has put some names to God’s work but the Lord knows the names He has given each star. See that one in the upper right corner? Yea, that itty bitty one…yes, that one as well. God cares that much about His creation!
Oh my, it just fell to the earth along with some others located clear across the planet…but not to worry, God still knows the names and the count. Absolutely awesome and amazing that the Great God I Am is watching over His universe to this degree!
This causes me to meditate and ask God why did He include Isaiah 40:25-26 in His Holy Scriptures? What does He want to know about Himself through this great creation? Surely, He is the Almighty God?
Jeremiah 32:17 declares, “Ah, Lord GOD! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.” Jeremiah 10:12 adds, “It is He who made the earth by His power, who established the world by His wisdom, and by His understanding stretched out the heavens.”
The Genesis 1 account of creation tells us that when God created the sun, the moon, the stars, the planets, the creatures, cattle, the plants, etc. individually He declared that it was good. BUT when He created man and woman, God’s creation was declared to be “very good.” WOW!
It is in this that I just stand back and behold the grace, mercy, and goodness of the Great and Almighty God of “so love.” He remains active in His “very good” creation for He has a divine purpose and plan for His children. The ones He loved so much that He gave His only, special, unique Son that no matter how far we fall. Unlike the stars, we can rise to eternal, abundant life in Christ as we believe and receive His sacrificial death to pay the wage of our sins and His resurrection power for our lives. More than WOW, the right word is HALLELUJAH! The right response is loving Him with all our hearts, all our souls, all our minds, and all our strength…proven in the overflow of obedience and worship.
When I see the stars, I am reminded of the Lord’s great love and care for His children. Matthew 10:29-31, “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
