As God has named and Numbered the Stars, He’s Named and Numbered You October 14, 2013

By Julie Murphree, Julie’s Fresh Air

As God determines the number of stars and names each one, he surely determines each one he has created “in his image.” And, he has called us each by name. All of us: male and female, young and old, rich and poor, black and white … all of us.

How much more does he call us by name than the stars, for we are to be his shining and illuminating reflection. (Psalm 147.4)

I feel his love when I read, “Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”[c] Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky.” Philippians 2:14 and 15

While the world draws me away so easily, when I do draw near to the Lord and seek him, I feel like I can shine. Not because of anything I do, but because of God’s love in me. May our light shine for the Lord.

One of my favorite verses is Isaiah 47:4 – He numberth the stars and calleth them all by name. Thanks for the reminder
