Our Healer

Psalm 147 1-6
Praise the Lord!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
for it is pleasant,  and a song of praise is fitting.
The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
he gathers the outcasts of Israel.
He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
He determines the number of the stars;
he gives to all of them their names.
Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;
his understanding is beyond measure.
The Lord lifts up the humble;
he casts the wicked to the ground.

This passage stood out to me today.  It is awesome that the Lord, who numbers and names the stars, cares enough for us that he binds up our wounds and heals our broken hearts.
