Transgression speaks [like an oracle] to the wicked (godless) [deep] within his heart;
There is no fear (dread) of God before his eyes.
For he flatters and deceives himself in his own eyes
Thinking that his sinfulness will not be discovered and hated [by God].
The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful;
He has ceased to be wise and to do good (Psalm 36:1-3).
Our formidable foe, the Devil, is always at work looking for someone to destroy. The reason he does this is to discredit us and make us ineffective for the work of the ministry. In the family, he gets between husband and wife, parents and children to avert any good that the family may do. We need to be aware of this always because he is subtle and always comes across as “the friend, mother, father we never had.
Help me to always look to you and your word. I may not always agree with you but I know that you are at work for my good so help me to always keep my eyes on you. Thank you for all that you do in the life of my family, military, law enforcement officers, EMTs, teachers, city, state, and the USA. I may not always like the way you operate but I know that you are doing it for my benefit and growth.
