The Foolish Heart - God Rejection

Some of us fancy ourselves stronger, smarter and wiser than we really are. We struggle to see how powerless, weak and helpless we really are. We lack a keen sense of how absolutely transient, fleeting and momentary is our existence. And yet, many absolutely scoff at God-dependency. Psalm 10:4. The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts. Psalm 14:1. The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good. Psalm 14 really about the folly of rejecting God and the gladness of submission to Him. Observations: 1.The fool and his folly. Proverbs 14:15, 16, 18, 19. The backslider will have a fill of his own ways but a good man will be satisfied with his. The naive inherit folly but the prudent are crowned with knowledge, Prov 26:4, 5, 12. Do you see a man wise in his own eyes, there is more hope for a fool than for him.

2. There are people who draw sincere yet erroneous conclusions about God but there are also those who are stubborn advocates of evil. And I need to love all of them, just as God loves all of them. 2 Tim2:24-26. Jude 20-25. Both those passages talk about there are different ways to dealing with people in error. We cannot use the same approach on everyone.

3. God is. Our universe screams God is. It is utter folly to think that man evolved from a being that lived in the water, came out of the water to live on land and then developed a conscience. Total foolishness.

4. We must not surrender boldness in our compassion. Have we let the pendulum swing too far and been too nicey-nicey? We can express love for peoples souls and still be bold.

God’s ways are not designed for our misery but for our betterment.

Isa. 47:8, 11. Mark verse 11 well. But evil will come upon you which you will not know how to charm away and disaster will fall on you which you will not know how to atone and destruction about which you do not know will come upon you suddenly.

God is the rock of my heart ....
