CAN THE ONE WHO COUNTS THE STARS FORGET HIS OWN CHILDREN!

CAN THE ONE WHO COUNTS THE STARS FORGET HIS OWN CHILDREN!

C.H. Spurgeon

“He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names.
Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite.” [Psalm 147:3-5]

He who counts the stars and calls them by their names, is in no danger of forgetting His own children! He knows your case as thoroughly as if you were the only creature He ever made, or the only saint He ever loved!

It is most important for us to learn, that the smallest trifles are as much arranged by the God of Providence, as the most startling events. He who counts the stars — has also numbered the hairs of our heads. Our lives and deaths are predestined — but so, also, are our sitting down and our rising up!

“But He knoweth the way that I take: when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” [Job 23:10]

“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.!” [Matt 10:29-30]

Praise the LORD!
