Names not numbers

Ps. 147: 4 He determines the number of the stars
and calls them each by name.

Last night I held my phone up to the sky and with an application, discovered a particular star was T5065. It made me wonder, what God calls that particular star. There are stars we don't even know exist, and God "calls them each by name". On the journey from Persia to Bethlehem, the three kings were guided by a star. This time of year with the shorter days (at least on our spot on the planet), try to go outside and imagine the greatness of God who "determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name".

Lord, help us get away from the artificial world we have made and re-engage with the creation you have made. Remind us of you mind, your will, your memory, you ability to recall thoughts, and your kindness to give us names not numbers. In Jesus name, amen.
