Psalm 14

Recognise how foolish many people are and thank God for changing your heart: ‘The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good’ (verse 1).

Remember that God looks at his people: ‘The LORD looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God’ (verse 2).

Take a few moments to think about the effects of sin: ‘They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt; there is none who does good, not even one’ (verse 3).

Pray for Christians who are under attack: ‘Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers who eat up my people as they eat bread and do not call upon the LORD?’ (verse 4).

Thank God for his commitment to his people, even when he judges others: ‘There they are in great terror, for God is with the generation of the righteous’ (verse 5).

Remember God often protects his people: ‘You would shame the plans of the poor, but the LORD is his refuge’ (verse 6).

Be thankful that Jesus reigns in Zion: ‘Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!’ (verse 7).

Think of what will happen when God brings revival: ‘When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad’ (verse 7).
