“SHARING GRACE AND TRUTH FROM THE PSALMS ABOUT FOOLS AND THOSE WHO OBEY GOD”

“SHARING GRACE AND TRUTH FROM THE PSALMS ABOUT FOOLS AND THOSE WHO OBEY GOD”

Psalm 14:1 “Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; no one does good!”

Psalm 14:5 “Terror will grip them, for God is with those who obey him.”

Taken from today’s reading in “The One Year Bible” by Zondervan.

1. The sad truth about fools and those who obey God.

Psalm 14:1 “Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; no one does good!”

Here we are told that only a fool would say such a thing.
What thing?
“There is no God.”

The other truth God gives us about fools is stated here as well.
“They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; no one does good!”
Also, God says this, Psalm 14:5 “Terror will grip them.”

As to those who “obey God”.
Psalm 14:5 “for God is with those who obey him.”
What a comfort to know that our God is with His people who obey Him.

Some additional thoughts:

1. Sin is so powerful as to blind men to the truth about God.

2. Sin and it’s effects are why God sent Jesus to deal with the issue of sin.

3. We also were once foolish and disobedient, but God in His mercy has saved us.

A prayer:

Father, we thank You for the Bible, and in particular the Psalms, they are loved and read by so many, and they are used by You to comfort and encourage, to teach and to warn etc. We pray for those we know who are like the fools described in this verse. Lord please pour Your grace into their lives, and lead them to repentance and salvation. And Father, thank You that You are with those who obey You and they are with You. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
