Psalm Saturday

Psalm 14
For the director of music. Of David. 1 The fool [a] says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.
2 The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.
3 All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
4 Will evildoers never learn— those who devour my people as men eat bread and who do not call on the LORD ?
5 There they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous.
6 You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.
7 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
Psalm 14:1 The Hebrew words rendered fool in Psalms denote one who is morally deficient.
Psalm 14 NIV.
Doesn't this sound like the world today? There are plenty who deny God's existence. There are people with no moral grounding or boundaries.
Much of our society just doesn't have time for God or doesn't want to know God. Yet He wants to know us!
2 The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. Psalm 14, NIV.
I find it interesting how this Psalm can be applied to society today as well as way back then. It would seem not a great deal changes regarding people!
As a Christian we can pray that people will see that they need God and indeed call upon Him. It is our great commission to tell people about Jesus and what He done for us on the cross. Our society is crying out for a remedy to it's moral deficiency and only Jesus is the answer to this.

I know that before I became a Christian I was looking for something to answer the questions I had about life. I sought this in the wrong places. How glad I was when I found the answers in the Bible. It all just fell into place and made perfect sense!

Many others seek answers in other religions, such as Islam, or through mediums, meditation, science and so on. To believe in Jesus just isn't cool in our society. It is looked down upon, we are ridiculed and many suffer because of these beliefs. Society is so caught up with rights and political correctness that we all have to tolerate each others religions and lifestyles. So as Christians if we do not agree with a certain way of living your life then we are persecuted for our opinions. Our society is Godless so doesn't understand when we use the Bible as our barometer for right living and morality. We are then labelled as 'fundamentalists'!

I pray for the day when people return to the Lord, bow on their knees to Him in fear and when Jesus returns.

12"Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. 13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
14"Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

Revelation 22:12-14 NIV.


  1. Love those verses. They seem to be speaking to the times we are living in.

    Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

  2. God bless you. Have a good Lord's day tomorrow.


It is always lovely to hear from my readers and I enjoy all you have to share!
