The [empty-headed] fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt and evil, and have committed repulsive injustice;
There is no one who does good.
God has looked down from heaven upon the children of men
To see if there is anyone who understands,
Who seeks after God [who requires Him, who longs for Him as essential to life].
Every one of them has turned aside and fallen away;
Together they have become filthy and corrupt;
There is no one who does good, no, not even one (Psalms 53:1-3).
While this Psalm appears to be talking to the world, I want you to consider that this is written to G_d’s children and the nation in particular. This Psalm is challenging the nation to take a hard look at his/her life to see if there is any way in them that is wrong and take steps towards reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5). We may never say, “there is no G_d” but will act and talk like it. Of course, mankind will listen with one ear and flush the information out the other and then wonder why their world has collapsed around them. I encourage you today to take a hard look at your life, to see if there is an area that is in disagreement with the Word of G_d.
One of your greatest desires for your children is that they would be happy and content. Sin is a seed that causes discontent, anger, frustration, and leads to war. The Devil knows this and all he needs is a small crack in a door or window to get into even the strongest of Christians. Please check my life to see if there is an area that is not surrendered to you and help me to bring you glory and honor in all that I do. Please be with my law enforcement officers, EMT staff, teachers, preachers, and military. Lord, we pray for rain upon our land.
