Psalm 14:1-2 – The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good. The Lord looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God.
Paul tells us in Romans 1:20, “For his invisible attributes, namely his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” It is a very foolish person who in his heart thinks there is no God. That person has a hardened heart and is unable or unwilling to see the truth. This is not what God wants from us. In verse two, we see God looking down at His creation to see who gets it and seeks a relationship with Him!
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy one is insight.”(Proverbs 9:10) Let me be someone who seeks after God not things of this world. I need to be in the word to have the truth of God’s word speak to me. I must communicate regularly through prayer in order to build our relationship and listen carefully for His direction. As I seek to follow God, I have to submit all of my life to Him. Worship and praise to God for sending Jesus to save me from my sin should be my daily response. The same love that God offered through Jesus on the cross that saved me is available to an atheist when the Spirit convicts them.
Thank you for loving us so much. Let me be someone who understands my role in your play. Help me to seek you and give you the glory!
