>Drove from Bath, NY to Hannibal, Mo yesterday…then had a hard time falling asleep.

So dove into the Word for a little while, got to thinking about one of my favorite verses:

Psalm 119.165 Great peace have those who love Your law; nothing can make them stumble.

Wondered about other references to “great”…didn’t do an exhaustive study, but did find these quickly:

Nehemiah 12.43 “…God had made them rejoice with great joy.

Eph 2.4 “But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which He loved us…”

Daniel 9.18 “…For we do not present our pleas before You because of our righteousness, but because of Your great mercy”

James 5.16 “…The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”

And here is my for-now favorite:

Jude 24 “Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of His glory with great joy.”

Now, the way Jude 24 reads, I wonder if the “great joy” is ours or His?
