26 Lift your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one,
and calls them each by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.
Isn’t it amazing to think that God not only knows the names of the stars, but that He makes sure they are all there where they are supposed to be. When we think about God and His amazing, limitless power, we should be comforted. Because the same God that is described by this verse is the One that earlier in chapter 40 is described like this:
11 He tends his flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young.
He watches over His own like a shepherd over a flock of sheep. He watches over you and me like this. He carries (insert your name here) close to His heart.
