Before God

Today's reading: Psalm 10:1-18

Psalm 10 is a petition by David imploring God not to delay in taking action against evil people, and to rectify trouble-filled situations brought about by them. As part of his plea, David describes the wickedness and sinful acts and thinking of those who aren’t following God. The common thread running throughout David's description in verses 2-11 is the attitude or belief that "There is no God" (vs. 4), and that they can do as they please because God doesn't see what they're doing (vs. 11). It's a pretty accurate and sobering depiction of what can happen to anyone when we choose to push God aside and elevate ourselves to the position of being our own god.

What does this psalm reveal about the dangers of choosing to put ourselves and our desires above God? Tami
