Psalm 53:1

“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.'” (Psalm 53:1)

No matter how many times you read this the meaning will not change. Anyone who denies the existence of God is a fool. Denying the validity of things is somewhat foolish but denying God is totally a foolish thing to do. You may deny the world is round or say that the world is going to get too hot and if you are wrong nothing major will occur as a consequence, but the very second you deny the creator of the universe you deny the power of your own life.

The evidence for God is so persuasive, so overwhelming, that you have to deny what you witness in the real world. Such denial is foolish not only from the standpoint that it robs you of God’s blessings but because it condemns you to what you believe. As long as you disbelieve you cannot receive grace, and thus you will spend eternity without God. Since nothing exists without God, then your eternity will be spent in total isolation of material things. Consciousness in a vacuum of senseless being on and on and on.

In a world of evil, it is foolish to deny goodness. In a world of hate, it is foolish to deny love. In a world of darkness, it is foolish to deny light. Denying God is a lot like denying a life preserver when you fall overboard at sea; like denying the use of a parachute when the plane is crashing.

Task for Today: Make sure you are not denying God by your words or your actions. It is also foolish to acknowledge God and then live as if He didn’t exist. Do you really believe there is a God? What are you doing as a consequence of that belief? Don’t just say it; do it.
