He Knows My Name
By Brian Price 2/13/2014

"3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names." - Psalms 147:3-4

Scientists think they are intelligent men, but when measured up to God, they are nothing but fools. All of the planets in our solar system have been given names. There is Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. But now try to imagine the names of all of the stars in the universe. It's quite incredible to imagine that God could possibly give names to every star in the universe, yet somehow, he does. Or try to imagine the 7+ billion people on earth. Every single person on this planet has been given a name. The Bible itself contains a total of nearly 800,000 words. Now try to imagine the size of a book with over 7 billion words in it. The size of the book would stack nearly a mile high. That is how large a book would be if you tried to record every person's name on the planet.

Yet God knows each of us by name. Psalms 147 says, "He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names." According to one source, just the Milky Way galaxy alone has more than 400 billion stars. That's just one galaxy. There are an estimated 200 billion galaxies in the universe. Now do the math. It would take an eternity for one man to name each star, much less remember each one by their name. Do you not feel inferior? Yet God said to Abraham, "Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be," (Genesis 15:5). The truth is, no man is able to number the stars. They are completely innumerable because we do not know the exact size of the universe. That would be like a sea turtle trying to measure the amount of fish in all of the earth's oceans. It would be impossible for him to do because he does not know how large the earth's oceans are, nor does he know how many fish could possibly exist in that large of space. That is the immense task that man has in trying to figure the largeness and vastness of space and the stars.

Yet God promised Abraham that his descendents would be exactly that... innumerable. And we are not only talking about the Jewish people. We are talking about the Christian adherents - people who are going to heaven. Revelation 7:9-10 says, "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb." The size of this congregation is so large that not one man in all of the world's history of existence is going to be able to number it. The company of saints will literally be innumerable.
