In His Heart

There is so much we don’t know  about other people’s hearts  and intentions.     One might want  to think  another person  is a friend,  but later discovers  that he has been greatly  taken advantage of.     Such experiences  hurt deeply.     The so-called friend  had no love  for God  and no good intentions  for God’s children.

King David spoke  about such people  and said about them  in Psalm 53:1,

The fool  has said in his heart, “There is no God,”
They are corrupt,  and have committed  abominable injustice;
There is no one  who does good.

In verse 2  David had called them  “the sons  of men”.     That’s saying  they live only  for the stuff  in this world,  and have no regard  for God,  other people,  or righteousness.     They are not really  children of God.     Deep down  in their  “heart”,  they mockingly say,  “There is no God.”     They might  put on an act  of being righteous  and religious,  but that’s only an act.     In unbelief,  they don’t care  about God’s love,  authority,  and salvation.

Because they despisingly take advantage  of God’s children,  David says  of them  in verse 4,

Have the workers  of wickedness  no knowledge,
Who eat up My people  as though  they ate bread
And have not called  upon God?

In their unbelief,  “the  sons of men”  don’t realize  that nonchalantly  taking down God’s children  will bring God’s eternal judgment  upon them.     David says  in verse 5  that come judgment,  they will have “shame,  because God had rejected them.”

Instead of foolishly rejecting  God’s truths,  everyone really needs  to see,  understand,  respect,  and believe  the words  God sets before us.     Realizing God’s patient love  and righteous judgment,  we humbly say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You for Your faithful care.     Create in us  clean hearts  and right spirits.”

Love,
Margaret
