Psalm 118:8 - Trust In God

Received a power point slide show via an email a few weeks ago about The Bible and was astounded by the profound message it portrayed. Thought I'd share here how awesome our Heavenly Father is - He alone knows what is best for us and ask us to trust in Him.

Quoted from the 11 slides as follows:
  1. This is pretty strange how it worked out this way. Even if you are not religious, you should read this.
  2. Q: What is the shortest chapter in the Bible?
    A: Psalm 117
  3. Q: What is the longest chapter in the Bible?
    A: Psalm 119
  4. Q: Which chapter is in the centre of the Bible?
    A: Psalm 118
  5. Facts: There are 594 chapters before Psalm 118. There are 594 chapters after Psalm 118. Add these numbers up and you get 1188.
    Q: What is the centre verse in the Bible?
    A: Psalm 118:8
  6. 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 centre of His will, just send them to the centre of His Word!
  7. Psalm 118:8 reads: "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 centre of it? Before sending this, I said a prayer for you. Have you got a minute - 60 seconds for God? All you do is simply say a small prayer for the person who sent this to you.
  8. "Father God, bless my friend in whatever it is that you know he or she may be needing this day! May their life be full of your peace, prosperity, and power as they seek to have a close relationship with You....Amen."
  9. Then, send it on to 10 other people. Within hours, 10 people have prayed for you, and you caused many people pray to God for other people. Then sit back and watch the power of God at work in your life for doing the thing that you know He loves.
  10. When things get tough, always doesn't get you around trouble, it gets you through it!
    "When you relinguish the desire to control your future, you obtain happiness."
  11. May God bless you!

The Divine Mercy Image, enthroned in our home
I do believe and trust in God, our Heavenly Father.

He asks us not to be afraid and promises to save us, knows each of us by name and we are precious to Him. Do refer to Isaiah 43:1-5 for comfort, assurance and strength.

God sends miracles everyday, in small and simple or even dramatic ways. We just have to train our eyes to be aware of them.

John, my beloved spouse and I experienced a miraculous protection from bodily harm during an attempted break-in into our home in late June.

And, it sure was a divine protection from The Divine Mercy, our Saviour and Redeemer!

We adore you O Christ and we bless You;
By Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world;
And, joy has come into the world!
