Every Star Has Been Named

“Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things, who brings out their host by number; He calls them all by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power; not one is missing.”

Isaiah 40:26

Ponder This

Take time on a dark night to go out and look up. Isaiah said, “Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things.” Do you think everything came out of nothing? You may say, “I can’t believe in an eternal God.” Do you believe in eternal, inanimate matter? Too often we let the creation in front of us block our view of the Creator who made it.

I was listening to the radio the other day and someone said, “You want to give a Christmas present? We’ll name a star after you. You choose somebody, and we will name a star for that person, and we’ll put it in a book.” Friend, it’s too late. Jesus has already named every one of the billions and billions of stars. He is the preserver of creation. He guides it all.

  • When was the last time you were in awe of creation, such as the stars in the night sky?
  • How does it comfort you to be reminded that Jesus even knows and names every star in the sky? What does that tell you about His concern for you?

Practice This

Plan a time soon to go out at night and look at the stars. Spend time reflecting on the fact that God knows each of them by name and His care for you is even greater than the stars.
