v. 1 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
Many of us have heard the story of the atheist who was demanding that out of fairness, atheists needed to have a holiday, since there were so many Christian holidays. Supposedly the atheist took it to court and the judge ruled that atheists already had their holiday–April Fool’s Day!
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity;
there is none who does good.
God looks down from heaven
on the children of man
to see if there are any who understand,
who seek after God.
They have all fallen away;
together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even one.

We’ve often noticed the part of this psalm where the fool says there is no God, but how often do we look at the part when God is looking from heaven to see if there are any who are seeking God? Perhaps some of us believe there is a God, but may be living our lives, making our decisions without consulting Him, almost as if we didn’t believe He was there. Not only is He there, but He’s also longing to guide us in the direction that would bring us the ultimate joy. We just have to ask! I wonder what God has in mind for you!
