Fresh Hope – 10th November 2020

Psalm 118 is the exact middle chapter of the entire Bible.

Psalm 117 is obviously before Psalm 118 and is the shortest chapter in the Bible.

Psalm 119 is obviously after Psalm 118 and is the longest chapter in the Bible.

The Bible has 594 chapters before Psalm 118, and 594 chapters after Psalm 118.

If you add up all the chapters, except Psalm 118, you get a total of 1188 chapters. 

1188 or Psalm 118 verse 8 is the middle verse of the entire Bible.

Is it hardly surprising that the very central verse of the whole Bible should contain a very central message for every human being on the planet?

“It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.” – Psalm 118:8.

If ever there was a time to trust in God rather than to put our trust in mere men it is surely now.  
There we have it. Beautiful.  

Proverbs 3:5-10 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Honour the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.
