After the Akeidah, Hashem blesses Avraham that his descendants will be numerous like the stars and the sand on the beach. The Kli Yakar mentions that the Jews are compared to these items, as well as dust, depending on their situation. When we are successful and living in peace, we are compared to stars. When our oppressors try to destroy us, we are compared to sand on the beach; the sand prevents waves from reaching any farther than the shore and stops them. When we are at an all-time low and our enemies tread on us, we are compared to dust. But whenever this is so, Hashem always promises us that we will rise to the top again.
