ANYONE THERE?

Read: Psalm 53

Key Verse: “God looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.” - Psalm 53:2

Most people can relate to praying and wondering if their words go beyond the ceiling. God hears us even when we do not feel like He is listening. Have you ever thought about prayer from God’s perspective though? This psalm gives us a glimpse into a difficult reality.

Many people will utter short prayers, but very few will actually seek God. Our hearts become locked into our jobs, our relationships, our future, our immediate pleasures, our trials, and our temptations. Who is focused on knowing God? How many people come to prayer meetings? How many want to fast? How many set aside technological distractions? Do not imitate the culture, but instead be renewed by drinking deeply in your faith and walk with Jesus.
