Proverbs of 38 yr old man

Stargazing. I'm awestruck, looking into the night sky seeing the countless stars of Abraham's descendants. Yes, the LORD has determined the number of the stars and calls them each by name. By faith Sarah, even though she was barren and beyond the proper age, was enabled to conceive a child, because she considered Him faithful who had promised. Her husband Abraham was almost dead, but he became the ancestor of many people. So the promise is received by faith. It is given as a free gift. And we are all certain to receive it, whether or not we live according to the law of Moses, if we have faith like Abraham’s. For Abraham is the father of all who believe. That is what the Scriptures mean when God told him, “I have made you the father of many nations.” This happened because Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing. In fact, there are as many of them as there are stars in the sky or grains of sand along the seashore. But someone may ask, “How will the dead be raised? What kind of bodies will they have?” How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. Then God gives it the new body he wants it to have. A different plant grows from each kind of seed. Not all flesh is the same: People have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor. It is the same way with the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever. Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength. I'm stargazing and I can't wait to see the new heavens and the new earth. Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light! What a celestial faith we have! Jesus your loving faithfulness endures forever.

Study Gen. 15:5
