Chose something that strikes you from these four short psalms to think about today. I often skim read over the four and then hone in on one psalm and, in particular, one thought that speaks to what I am going through at the present.
More of David wrestling with how things are, bringing his worries and concerns to the Lord.
As children Dad and Mum taught us Psalm 14 v1, “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.'”
And this isn’t just athiesm. It’s all false religions, all world-views that reject Jesus, that are not of God and His word.
We see this so very evident in the world around us. Our friends and family who are living for themselves, or for made-up orthodoxy and spiritualism.
David wrestles with this, and we do too!
Psalm 14 points us to Jesus. We have all turned aside, we have all become corrupt, not one of us does good.
This is why we need Jesus! No matter how clever and intellectual the great athiests might be, or how kind and benelovent various false-religions and gurus might seem – They cannot solve this core problem.
But Jesus does!
There’s a wonderful catechism in the “Christiana” book 2 of pilgrim’s progress which has the question of how do the three persons of the trinity save us.
How does God the Son save us? By His righteousness, death and blood and life.
Hallelujah, what a saviour!
