Our Caring Creator
He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds
Christian astronomer David Block tells us that our Milky Way galaxy contains one hundred billion stars- and that is just one small part of the vast heavens of which our planet is but a tiny speck. Considering the utter insignificance of our earth , it is hard to believe that the Creator of the cosmos cares about what happens to the human family that has been sonically described as a semi-invisible rash on the skin of the sub- microscopic. Planet in a second -rate solar system.
The astonishing truth is that. God does care. Long before the invention of telescopes, David asked “When I consider your heavens... what is mankind that you are mindful of them?” (Psalm 8:3-4), And fGod doesn’t simply care, He cares for everyone as if we each were the sole object of His loving attention! Psalm 147:3-4 contrast the star-studded sky with the hurts of a singlet soul: “He heals the broken-hearted ad binds up their wou\nds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.”
Mind-boggling! The wisdom and the. Power that sustain the whole cosmos are focused on every believer. What a source of confidence and strength when we experience weakness and doubt!
He who holds the stars in space will surely uphold his saints on earth
