Psalm 147:4 (NLT)
4 He counts the stars and calls them all by name.

David is singing praises to God for his mightiness. He is recounting how God is rebuilding Jerusalem and bringing back His people. So David starts to dwell on the awesome and innumerable powers of God. David says in Psalm 147:4 that God is able to count all of the stars in the heavens and call each one of them by name.

Man has only yet to begin to explore the vast reaches of the universe. Through modern technology such as the Hubble Telescope scientists have been able to peek out into parts of space that once were just darkness to the eye. And still there is so much we have not seen and so much we do not know. Yet God knows where each star is placed and He has given each one a name. Even more amazing is what God knows about us. In Luke 12:6-7 Jesus says, “What is the price of five sparrows? A couple of pennies? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are more valuable to him than a whole flock of sparrows.” God knows us so intimately He has even numbered each hair of our head. Of course some of us might not have too many to number these days, but God still loves us. He is a God concerned with every little detail of our lives. Have you stopped to praise your God this morning? Have you given the Lord praise and glory for the things He has done in your life? Pray and give thanks for the good things God has blessed you with. Give praises to the one who knows you intimately. Praise God for His loving kindness, His mercy, His grace, His gentleness, His mighty power, His compassion, His patience, His salvation. Always remembering the hope the Lord brings to you.
