Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.
Isaiah 40:26 NIV
I read this verse this morning & it was really comforting. Being reminded that He brings out the stars one at a time & knows them by name. So He surely knows me by name.
The thing that really stuck with me, though, is that none of them are missing. He knows where all of them are. They are right where they are supposed to be.
It stuck with me, because right now I feel a little displaced, since 98% of what we own is in storage. We don’t have a place to call our own right now. That womanly instinct of wanting to nest & get things in order is kicking in, but I can’t do that in someone else’s house.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m completely grateful to have a roof over my head & that we get along with the people we live with. I’m blessed beyond measure, because God is taking care of me.
In this verse, He is telling me, regardless of how I feel, I’m not lost/missing. He sees me right where I am & I’m right where I’m supposed to be.
Some versions even say that not one is lacking. So I know that I’m where I’m supposed to be AND I have everything I need.
Have you been feeling lost/displaced? I want you to know that God knows right where you are. You’re not missing. You are where you’re supposed to be. God is taking care of you. Turn to Him & talk to Him today. He loves you!
