LET THEM GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD FOR HIS
UNFAILING LOVE AND HIS WONDERFUL DEEDS FOR
MEN. ( PSALM 107:8 *NIV )

Today we will look at the shortest chapter
in the Bible.  It is located at the exact center of the Bible
as well!   This Chapter is the 117th in the Book of Psalms.
Though it is only two verses of praise for our Heavenly
Father, it gives us two big reasons to praise Him indeed!

PSALM 117

1. PRAISE THE LORD, ALL YOU GENTILES!  LAUD HIM,
ALL YOU PEOPLES!
    [laud] means, “to speak very well of.”

The Hebrew word for Gentiles means, “all people
except the Jews”

The word for peoples speaks of other groups, along
ethnic or language lines.

2. FOR HIS MERCIFUL KINDNESS IS GREAT TOWARD
US, AND THE TRUTH OF THE LORD ENDURES
FOREVER.  PRAISE THE LORD!

Merciful kindness refers to God’s faithfulness to His
Covenant promises, to His Children all over the World.

Now have you ever said to yourself, “I
can’t think of anything that God has done for me lately.
Therefore how can I praise Him?”  Well, this short
Psalm gives us two big reasons to praise our Heavenly
Father; His tremendous love toward us, and His
faithfulness that endures forever.  So just think, if God
did nothing else for us, He would still be worthy of our
highest praise everyday!

Have a wonderful day my friend and may the Love
of God fill your heart and mind, today and always!  Amen!

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
