In the Middle of Everything is God

December 8,  2021

There are exactly 594 chapters before Psalm 118, and exactly 594 chapters after it. When you add the number of chapters before Psalms 118 and those after, the sum is 1,118. And the verse at the very center of the Bible is Psalms 118.

Bible study can be more fun if you break up your study with some fun trivia. Do you know, for example, what Bible chapter and verse is at the very center of the Bible?

Psalm 118:1-9

1 "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;

his love endures forever.

2 "Let Israel say:

'His love endures forever.'

3 "Let the house of Aaron say:

'His love endures forever.'

4 "Let those who fear the Lord say:

'His love endures forever.'

5 "When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord;

he brought me into a spacious place.

6 "The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.

What can mere mortals do to me?

7 "The Lord is with me; he is my helper.

I look in triumph on my enemies.

8 "It is better to take refuge in the Lord

than to trust in humans.

9 "It is better to take refuge in the Lord

than to trust in princes."

This trivia is interesting, but I have made Jesus the center of my life. It is more rewarding.

Thank You, Father, for bringing Jesus into my heart. Knowledge puffs up but Your word levels me out. Praise God, Amen.

Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
