Scripture: Psalm 118:1
“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever” NLT
At times defining the center of activity and then trying to achieve it we find the destination can be a forever moving target.
The center of the financial universe is NYC. To be in the center move there.
In the past to be in the center of the automotive world you would move to Detroit, Michigan.
To be in the center of the oil industry Houston would be the place to go.
Years ago I used to struggle with “being in the center of God’s will for my life.” Seems the more I tried to figure it out the further away I was moving.
Then I had an opportunity to read some King James Version Bible Trivia which added new perspective to what I was searching for:
Shortest chapter in the Bible —- Psalm 117
Longest chapter in the Bible —- Psalm 119
The center verse of the Bible falls in —- Psalm 118
So what does all this have to do with being in the center of God’s will in my life?
I found in Psalm 118 —- at the center of the Bible —- some very important attributes of God which when embraced moved Jesus into the center of my life.
Psalm 118:1 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
Psalm 118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
Psalm 118:8 “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”
Psalm 118:9 “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.”
Psalm 118:14 The LORD is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation.
Psalm 118:22 The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. (Jesus)
Psalm 118:24 This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:28 You are my God, and I will praise You; You are my God, I will exalt You.
Psalm 118:29 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
Prayer: Father, thank you that being in the center of your will is clearly spelled out in the center of the Bible. Help me maintain it. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!”
