I read this psalm and think, “I get it, David. We are facing the same thing in 2022.”
It’s not just our neighbors who lie. It’s governments, the media, preachers, parents, teachers… the list goes on. They say:
We will lie to our hearts content. Our lips are our own, who can stop us?”
Right now I wonder if ANYONE can stop them. Like David, I too wonder if the godly are vanishing from the earth. The godly are the only hope for this world.
I could get on my soapbox. But instead I’m going to pray that those of you reading this post will recognize the lies you are being fed every day. Whether it’s your preacher saying worshiping God should be fun and make you feel good, or someone saying tolerance is love, or truth is relative, or the government promising illegals free stuff and a good life, or anyone saying a person can choose their sex, or that abortion is not murder, or the media isn’t biased, or global warning is a result of poor stewardship of the earth…
Oh man, I just stepped up on my soap box, didn’t I? I won’t go on. Instead I’m pleading with the godly people out there:
Stand up for the truth according to Scripture.
Don’t accept what the loudest voices are saying. BE the loudest voice.
Once again, I am speaking to godly people, not just “Christians.” People are being told that a Christian is someone who believes certain things about Jesus. That’s a lie.
If you haven’t confessed your sin, repented (which means to turn from sin), if you aren’t growing more holy every day by of the choices you make as a result of your relationship with God through the blood of His Son Jesus – you are not a Christian. Therefore, this post does not apply to you.
Harsh? Yes. But I for one am tired of the lies. The truth hurts. But it is the truth.
If we who KNOW the truth are out there making ourselves heard, if we are living the godly lives we are called to live, if we are leading people to the saving grace of Jesus, there may be hope for this world yet,
even though the wicked strut about, and evil is praised throughout the land.
Calling all godly people! It’s up to us.
