Have you seen this lately?

Every once in a while, this circles through e-mail.  I came across it recently and was reminded of what a “cool” thing this is about God’s Word.  There’s so much more about God’s Word than we’ll ever begin to comprehend on this planet.  But praise Him, one of these days, we will, when we see Him Face to face.

I pray that each of you enjoy your day with the Lord, and that we all remember the Truth of the very important verse below…
The Center of the Bible
Q: What is the shortest chapter in the Bible?
A: Psalms 117

Q: What is the longest chapter in the Bible?

A: Psalms 119

Q: Which chapter is in the center of the Bible?

A: Psalms 118

Fact: There are 594 chapters before Psalms 118

Fact: There are 594 chapters after Psalms 118

Add these numbers up and you get 1188.

Q: What is the center verse in the Bible?

A: Psalms 118:8

Q: Does this verse say something significant about God’s perfect will for our lives?

The next time someone says they would like to find God’s perfect will for their lives and that they want to be in the center of His will, just send them to the center of His Word!

Psalms 118:8

“It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”

Now isn’t that odd how this worked out (or was God in the center of it)?
