Wednesdays in the Word

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
He counts the number of the stars,
He calls them all by name.
Great is our Lord,
and mighty in power,
His understanding is infinite.
The Lord lifts up the humble."
Psalm 143:3-6

After I graduated from high school, I went on a trip with some friends and relatives and spent a week on a houseboat in Nevada. (on Lake Mead, I think it was)
That was ages ago but I will always remember laying on the roof of the boat's cabin at night and seeing the sky completely filled with stars. It was breathtaking.
I love that the One who has the ability to not only count those stars but name them all, loves and cares for the condition of our hearts. Our hurts aren't beyond His healing touch.
He bandages our wounds and heals our heartbreaks. He gets it. "His understanding is infinite." There isn't anything He doesn't understand.
"Great is our Lord."
