Where is the center of the Bible?

I learned in Sunday School as a child that if you take a Bible and hold it upright and open it to the center you will open it to one of the chapters in the book of "Psalms".
I have tried this many times and almost always open it to "Psalms". Next: with your Bible turned to "Psalms" take the last half of the Bible and find the middle and you should open it to "Matthew". This will help you find other books in the Bible.

This is Bible trivia is pretty amazing.

What is the shortest chapter

Answer - Psalms 118

Fact: There are 594 chapters before Psalms 118

Fact: There are 594 chapters after Psalms 118

Add these numbers up and you get 1188

What is the center verse in the Bible?
Answer - Psalms 118:8

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 center of His will, just send them to the center of His Word!

Psalms 118:8 (NKJV)
"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 center of it)?

Before sending this, I said a prayer for you. You got a minute? 60 seconds for God? All you do is simply say a small prayer for the person who sent you this.

"Father God bless _________ in whatever it is that you know he/she may be needing this day! And may ________ life be full of your peace, prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with You. Amen."

Then send it on to five other people. Within hours five people have prayed for you, and you caused a multitude of people to pray to God for other people. Then sit back and watch the power of God work in your life for doing the thing that you know He loves.

Faith doesn't get you around trouble, it gets you through it!

    We received this trivia by email. It has been brought to our attention that not all Bibles have 1189 chapters, and the actual median verse is unlikely to be Psalm 118:8.
    Therefore we acknowledge that this trivia may not be totally accurate.

    REMEMBER: God has spoken to humanity through the whole of the Scriptures. As God's children we should seek God in a personal relationship, and keep Him in the center of our lives.
