Psalms 14 - 16: The fool hath said in his heart there is no God. (Psalm 14:1-16:11)

Mike BucherMike Bucher, 08/29/2018

Part of the Exposition of Psalms series, preached at a Wednseday Evening service.

In this study we continue in Psalms 14 to 16. We all have a hunger for food. We thirst for water. We have need for sleep and rest. Imagine how it feels to eat after going a week without food, or water... or how good sleep and rest feel after being up for 2 days straight.

We all have spiritual thirst, hunger & need. Our spirit is often neglected and only God's Word, The Bible, can satisfy that need. Part of the bible will convict us of our sin, part will give us spiritual insight and other parts will bring comfort and solace. It can be said that there may be no part of God's Word that brings us more comfort and rest than the book of Psalms.

We begin our study by addressing "the fool" who says there is no God. It's sad because this sort of person misses so much of life, goodness & hope from God. In contrast, we see David blessed as he prays and sings to God.

When we study God's Word in The Book of Psalms, our spirits will be encouraged, lifted up & filled. It is better than food, water or sleep after a long time without...

Psalm 14:1-16:11

1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. 2The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. 3They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 4Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD. 5There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous. 6Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge. 7Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad. 15:1 LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? 2He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. 3He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour. 4In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. 5He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved. 16:1 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. 2O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee; 3But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight. 4Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips. 5The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. 6The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. 7I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. 8I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 10For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. (KJV)
