Stars in the Sky

Hey Guys,

Like most nights I am late again, pondering life, plans and this guy named Jesus. This is not a rare occurrence for me as my mind usually ponders the deepness of God and all He is. Tonight was different though, tonight something was different than most nights. For the first night in many I knew God was there with me.

What made this night different was that I took a late night walk, I walked for about 2 minutes before I stopped. I stopped because I saw the big dipper, Orion’s belt, I saw the stars.

This seems ridiculous though, they are just stars. Massive gases burning producing light millions and millions of miles away. But I was reminded of something tonight. The God who created the stars, the creator of all, created me.

It was no accident, no mistake but purposeful creation.

I mean this is the God that “determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names” 
(Psalm 147:4)

It leaves me in the same place that David is in, in the Psalms. That “When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?” (Psalm 8:3-4)

For I am sinner, a man broken and in need of a savior.

At it comes down to this for me tonight, that for the creator of the stars, the heavens and the earth if he cares about each one of those… How much more does he care about me?

“How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
     They cannot be numbered!
   I can’t even count them;
      they outnumber the grains of sand!
   And when I wake up,
      you are still with me!
(Psalm 139:17-18)

It is nights like this I am reminded “Why should I be afraid, When you placed the stars in place” (You Shine – Brain Doerksen)  I have nothing to fear, because God placed the stars, named them. But so much more, he loves a sinner like me.

Much Love,
