I know some days you feel overwhelmed by your circumstances. You feel pulled in so many directions, trying so hard to make everything work out. You are pressing in to know Me, and then something happens in your world to throw you out of orbit. Just like the stars above, you have a path that orbits around Me. When you become distracted by the enemy you lose your way. Stay on your path and leave the other stars to Me. Remember that it was I that placed each star in the galaxy and I named each one. Let that be a reason to celebrate. If I named the stars, do you not realize that My gaze never leaves you, even for a second?
Trust Me, there will always be something trying to upset your world. That is why I must be the center of everything every day. Start your day with Me. Go throughout your day with Me. End your day with Me. Whenever you feel wobbly and like you are going off-course, just reset your gaze on Me. I am not far away. I am in you and you are in Me. Just breathe Me in and relax in My presence.
I am not shocked or surprised at anything that you are going through. Enjoy the process, even the painful parts of the journey, because I am with you. I never leave you or forsake you. I am with you in the fire. I am with you in the flood. I am with you in the storm.
Rise up and realize that you have the God of the cosmos living on the inside of you. Take authority over the enemy's attempts to derail you. War with My Word. War with the promises I have given you. Most importantly, rest in My love, for perfect love casts out fear. What others think or say about you is not the determining factor of your value. I determine your value and it was determined at the Cross. You do not have to defend yourself when I am your defender.
Look up again and see how great I am. I created you to shine bright for all to see My glory. Do not let the enemy dim your light. You may feel small but when you abide in Me, your weakness becomes your strength. Therefore, stay close to My Son, for you will reflect what you set your gaze upon.
Psalm 147:4 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
He determines and counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names.
Psalm 8:3-9 The Passion Translation (TPT)
3 Look at the splendor of your skies,
your creative genius glowing in the heavens.
When I gaze at your moon and your stars,
mounted like jewels in their settings,
I know you are the fascinating artist who fashioned it all!
But when I look up and see
such wonder and workmanship above,
I have to ask you this question:
4 Compared to all this cosmic glory,
why would you bother with puny, mortal man
or be infatuated with Adam’s sons?
5 Yet what honor you have given to men,
created only a little lower than Elohim,
crowned like kings and queens with glory and magnificence.
6 You have delegated to them
mastery over all you have made,
making everything subservient to their authority,
placing earth itself under the feet of your image-bearers.
7–8 All the created order and every living thing
of the earth, sky, and sea—
the wildest beasts and all the sea creatures—
everything is in submission to Adam’s sons.
9 Lord, your name is so great and powerful.
People everywhere see your majesty!
What glory streams from the heavens,
filling the earth with the fame of your name!
