Fool said in his heart

Psalm 14:1: “The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.

Here you have a definition of a fool. The psalmist says that those who do not believe in God are fools. Sounds rather offensive! Maybe, but it is also true. Unfortunately, the truth can sometimes be very harsh and painful. It is better to wake up to it or you will remain fool for the rest of your life. People often think that they can be good in and out of themselves and they are wrong about it too. The verse says that no who does good. You need to connect to the source of goodness in order to become good.

Lord is good to us

Psalm 13:6: “I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been good to me.

Goodness of the Lord is probably the most striking feature. It is show to everyone. It does not matter whether you are a saint or a sinner his love is infinite and He shares his love with everyone. Some people fail to see his goodness, because they concentrate only on the bad things n life. Do not do this. Remember how many good things happened in your life. It all came from him. And most of the bad stuff came from Satan. Some we created on our own. 

So, praise the Lord for what He has done to you.

The words of God are pure

Psalm 12:6: “The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

The verse tells us about the quality of the word of God. It is compared to the purified silver. It is just comparison that has to show how valuable and pure the words of God are. Could we say the same thing about our words? You know what? We can change that by daily reading the Bible, which is his word. That will eventually influence the way we think and also the way we speak. Start with one chapter per day. Then increase the quantity bit by bit.

God’s attitude towards the righteous and the wicked

Psalm 11:5: “The Lord examines the righteous, but the wicked, those who love violence, he hates with a passion.

God loves everyone. He wants to save everyone. He also allows everyone experience abundant blessings in life. However, his relationship with people is different. There are two groups of people: the righteous and the wicked. He is in good relationship with the former and in bad with the latter. God is in loving relationship with the righteous since Jesus washed their sins away, but He has no connection with the wicked since there is a gap between him and them. It has to be covered by the cross of Jesus. No other way!

He hears desires of the humble

Psalm 10:17-18:  Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear, To do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, That the man of the earth may oppress no more.

Looking at what happens in the world one might get the impression that only the ungodly get what they want. By using all available tool (sinful included) they seem to get results faster and outrun the righteous that try to do everything according to their faith principles and conscience. However, the path of the righteous will always bring him to success and the path of the wicked will end up in failure, unhappiness and destruction. Humility will eventually be rewarded.
