Psalms 147:1-5

"Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
The Lord doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
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."
Psalms 147:1-5

 We doubt sometimes that the Lord can help us, and guide us... that he knows us, or what we need.  We sometimes think that we know best, at least for ourselves.  I have thought that, sometimes.  And then I read things like this, and I remember who God is... he can number the stars.  He understands *everything.*  ... And I can't even figure myself out most days. :)  *Definitely* not wiser than he is. :)
And, you know, if God can number the stars... maybe he really does know what we're going through.  ... Maybe we should consider that he can heal our broken hearts, and bind our wounds.  God is great, and of great power.  Today, let's respect him and work on understanding him a little bit more.  He isn't fallible like we are.  He isn't untrustworthy or biased.  He can do anything at all, and he chooses to love and help us, his children.  Let's accept his help, and remember how much we need his guidance.
