He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names. Psalm 147:3
Ever have a broken heart? Ever have someone you love disappoint or hurt you?
At times we all get down or feel depressed about our surroundings or circumstances but the 147th chapter of Psalms offers hope and insight into the lives of those who believe in the Creator of Heaven and earth.
Verse three tells us that God not only heals the broken heart but He also cares for our wounds. In order for a doctor to heal he/she must see the wound and understand what caused the injury. Like a doctor, God knows how we are wounded and He even knows how to bind our wounds!
Verse four combined with verse three adds weight to the fact that God is involved in His creation. He not only numbered the uncountable stars but He also knows them by name. How much more does God care for you and me! (see John 3:16)
God cares for you and knows your hurts. Have you talked with Him lately?
