Psalm 117 is the shortest psalm and the middle-mark of the Bible. These fun-facts don’t mean too much to me but they may be useful in a trivia game.
What I found powerful about this psalm is that you can apply it to your life at any time and in every situation. We are to always praise the Lord – in good times, bad times and so/so times. He is the source of our praise and the truth that never changes. Maybe we could say – God put the true in truth.
Verse 2, in the amplified bible is thought-provoking. “His lovingkindness prevails over us and we triumph and overcome through Him”. As I thought through these word, I saw some victories in my life differently. I triumphed and overcame when I found the self-control to step-back. To be still. To let go of something to let God work it out. The victories He achieved in me and for the situation were far more than I could have done under my own power.
Thank you Jesus. I praise you because you are the truth, the way and the life.
O praise the LORD, all you nations! Praise Him, all you people! For His lovingkindness prevails over us [and we triumph and overcome through Him], And the truth of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD! (Hallelujah!). Psalm 117
See you tomorrow for Psalm 118.
