always simple – it’s lies that get complicated. Someone asked me how many
atheists I’ve met so I told him I haven’t met any atheists, just a lot of
liars! God is dogmatic that we all know and we all understand and none of us
have any excuse (Romans 1:20). It’s a simple truth but even we who are
Christians like to lie about it, even to ourselves. Surely renowned academics,
philosophers or even clergy who claim to be atheists must be taken seriously –
yes there are clergy in pulpits and theological colleges claiming atheism. The
Creator Sovereign God states otherwise.
What about the simple truth of Psalm 40 verse 3 in a Covid crisis? The Psalmist
wrote that God had “put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many
shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord”. Praise … see … fear …
trust … what an unexpected truth!
Can we encourage you to realise that the value of praising the Creator Jesus
Christ even in bad times, has a public blessing in mind … the salvation of
your unbelieving neighbours and friends who have noticed God’s Grace at work in
you … that they need. If you have problems with the situation then take your
complaints to the Lord privately, but show your praise of Him and His works
publicly, so that “many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord”.
