Daily Bible Study with Purpose
Psalm 117:1-2  Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples. 2 For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord.


I have no preconceived notions as to why Psalm 117 is the shortest book in the Bible, having only two verses and is in the middle of the Bible. I’m sure scholars have made their viewpoints and may have come up with conclusions as to why.  
The Holy Spirit within me lets me know that because He is the Lord of my life, the giver of all life, the very breath that I inhale and exhale is all His. There is nothing made that was not made by Him. Mercy and kindness are tremendous and are undeserved; only God can give me. The Lord is true, and He is truth. God is the beginning and the end of ALL things. I love to praise You, Lord! I commend you for your holiness! I glorify you for your salvation. I praise you for your power!  
Thank you for being the man of God (God incarnate) who died on Calvary in the middle of one who would believe and the other who unfortunately would not. You will be glorified by those who believe and accept your gift of eternal life. 
There are so many more things I praise you for, and prayerfully whoever If you have not accepted God, our Lord, and Savior into your heart, I hope you will and start a praise list. ALL Honor and Praise and Glory belong to you, Lord Jesus! Praise The Lord!
