Psalm 14

As I read Psalm 14, I thought, how depressing.  How can God even think of loving us if he doesn't see us as anything other than evil and corrupt?  He searched the earth early on and found Noah.  He later look and found qualities of himself in David.  Then he looked again and saw Mary, the young woman that he chose to be Jesus' mother.  But now, who does he see in our age?  Who will be recorded in the books next?  Billy Graham?  I think picking that one person is not our job.  God will use all who are willing.

  6 You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor,
       but the LORD is their refuge.
    7 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
       When the LORD restores his people,
       let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad! 

In our present day, we have the hope of salvation and the knowledge that by being obedient to God and keeping his commands and accepting Jesus our our Savior, we can rejoice!  For God looks down on all us sinners and sees evil on some and the covering of our sins by Christ's blood.  We can hide under his wings, away from the cruelty and evil of the world, and when Jesus comes back, Christians will celebrate!


  1. he's so good to us isn't he? even though we continually let him down. over and over.

  2. Amen! I'm humbled by his Grace, he loves us regardless of the fact that we hurt ourselves and others over and over again.
