The very center of the Bible is a short Psalm. Did you know that? Psalm 117, only 2 verses. And I bet you can’t guess what it talks about. What did God chose to put at the very center, perhaps it could be said the heart, of His Word? Praise.

“All you nations, praise The Lord. All you people, praise Him because The Lord loves us very much, and His truth is everlasting. Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 117:1-2, NCV)

Is this a coincidence? A mere happinstance? NOT A CHANCE!!! The Bible is God’s Word. It is inspired by the Holy Spirit of God (2 Timothy 3:16). If God gave the words to write to the writers of the Bible, why would He not also guide those who put all the writings together into one Book? I cannot believe that any of the Bible happened by accident. It all happened by the hand of God.

Did God know the center of the Bible would tell us to praise Him? You bet He did! Did He know that someday, someone would figure out what the very middle of the Bible was? Of course! The core of our faith is in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and as our Savior. The core of our response must be PRAISE!!! On this Thanksgiving day, remember from whom all things come. Direct your thanksgiving to Him in praise and worship. All glory and honor and praise be to the God of the Bible!!!!
