Reading through the Bible together
What an encouraging Psalm! God, who called the stars into existence gave them each a name in the vast universe. He is the one who helps and heals us; the one who provides all our needs; the one who gives us His Word.
The One who helps and heals us: “The Elder Brother of our race is by the eternal throne. He looks upon every soul who is turning his face toward Him as the Savior. He knows by experience what are the weaknesses of humanity, what are our wants, and where lies the strength of our temptations; for He was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. He is watching over you, trembling child of God. Are you tempted? He will deliver. Are you weak? He will strengthen. Are you ignorant? He will enlighten. Are you wounded? He will heal. The Lord ‘telleth the number of the stars;’ and yet ‘He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.’ Psalm 147:4, 3.” (The Desire of Ages, p.329)
The One who provides all our needs: God’s heart rejoices when we trust Him to meet all our needs. As David says in verse 11 – “He delights in those who fear Him; who put their hope in His unfailing love”. Put your hope in His unfailing love today.
The One who gives us His Word: How awesome to have laws and decrees written in God’s Word that give us a revelation of Him! When we follow His Word, we show the world that we want to be obedient to God and have a relationship with Him. What a privilege is ours to reveal God to those around us by living in obedience to His Word!
