The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Psalm 19:1 (ESV)
My granddaughter, Arianna is afraid of the dark.
She is thrilled with the thought of there never being any night in heaven. (Rev. 21:25)
“We won’t ever have to go to bed, right Nana?” she asks me. “We won’t ever be tired, right?”
“Look at the stars, Nana. Those are the stars God made for Arianna, right Nana?”
When Arianna has to go out at night she looks up. The stars make her less afraid. They remind her of a God who loves her enough to give her some light in the dark.
If I am honest I admit to being afraid of the dark too. I tend to put my head down and move quickly. How much better if I would lift my head and see the stars God made for me.
“Lift up your eyes on high
And see who has created these stars,
The One who leads forth their host by number,
He calls them all by name;
Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power
Not one of them is missing.” Isaiah 40:26 (NASB)
