God loves the middle. He placed “the tree of life…in the midst” of the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:9). He told the ancient Levites to put their city “in the middle” of their tribal land (Numbers 35:5). The Israelites considered Yahweh God as the center of their capital city: “God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved…” (Psalms 46:5). No wonder the cross on which Jesus died was the middle cross, between two thieves (Mark 15:27); there God positioned Christ to be mightily raised from the dead. LORD, I make You the center of my life that You can do Your best work from the middle of my situation.
