“The fool has said in his heart, There is no God! They are corrupt; they have done abominable works, there is no one who does good.” Psalms 14:1
How much of the world would prefer to say there is no God? Truly as the time until the end continues, more and more join the ranks of not only being corrupt, but also making such a foolish statement.
“Professing to be wise, they become foolish, and change the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.” Romans 1:22-23
Just on the surface, as a Christian, I could only imagine life without Christ, without the joy of the Lord, what a hopeless state! To me, to consider that there are those who go throughout life denying their Creator is but unimaginable in my life. Even though I was Saved at the relatively young age of 9, I still believed in God beforehand. Yet many of us who are Christians are mocked for such faith and considered foolish for believing such ‘old fashioned myths’.
Truly that puts the foolishness of their heart into prospective. To be able to look around and clearly see the evidence that God has provided simply in the mirror, while denying God, is not only astonishing, it is a sad condition of the heart. As Believers we know that we can fully trust the Lord, we understand that He watches out for those who are His and we know that whatever happens to us, happens according to His will.
“Watch over me, O Mighty God, for in You I put my trust.” Psalms 16:1″
While there may be times we were certainly have fears, we must still continue to remember those three words, “trust and obey”, for truly there is no other way.
“My steps have been upheld in Your paths, so that my footsteps have not slipped.” Psalms 17:5
As we continue on in our respective countries, understand that as things get worse and worse, as man rebels more against their Creator, our steps are being upheld in His paths. We must still be diligent to do those things that the Lord has laid upon our heart, but furthermore, we must also be diligent in being faithful to Him who we will stand before. (2nd Cor. 5:10).
