You can listen to today’s passage here: Psalm 53

The message today is stark and straightforward: God is looking to see who trusts Him. I think it is implicit that if He looks and finds people trusting Him then they will be invited to do good things in the name of God, to make God known to other people and to set am example in how with how they live so that people don’t just see them as ‘nice’ or ‘good’ but godly too.

The corresponding outcome for those who ‘say in their heart there is no God’ is pretty stark. In short, the outcome is not good. However every person has the choice in whether they say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to God. I’ve always found it fascinating how respectful God is of the human ability to choose or reject Him. That is until the end of it all, when ‘every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.’ Or that’s how it appears to me, at least. So is it a real choice or just an illusion of one? I wonder….Either way, it seems pretty clear that the better choice to make now, today, is to be God’s person and follow His ways. I’m doing my best.

Something To Do

Be aware of the choices you make today. Where you know that God would have you do something in a particularly way, do your best to take that choice.

Something To Pray

‘Help me to trust you, even and especially on the days it’s hard.’
