How big is your God? I shared my faith with a friend of mine I often ate lunch with. He was a medical doctor, and said he had trouble believing in God, because he was aware of such small, minute things he had studied through his telescope; as well as the larger things, such as the galaxies.
The God of the galaxies is also the God of the brokenhearted. That's what David tells us in verses 3 and 4 of our passage: "He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds. He tells the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names." (vs 3-4)
The contrast we see in these two verses--between the heavens and the broken heart--ought to encourage us. God made the heavens. He spoke and it was done. His creation stood steadfast. The God who made the heavens is concerned about your broken heart. Others may not be concerned, but God is. He's not so far away that He doesn't know your heart is hurting. He's not so great that He can't stoop down to you when you are pained, weeping and looking for help.
Yes, the God of the heavens is the God of your heart. The God who numbers and names the stars knows your needs. He knows all about you, and thus He is able to meet your every need. More than that, He very much wants to!
"Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite" (vs. 5). His love and understanding are limitless. His power is great. He can do what needs to be done.
Go with God's blessings today, and never forget that you are loved!!!
