1 The fool says in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;
there is no one who does good.
2 God looks down from heaven
on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
any who seek God.
3 Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.
4Do all these evildoers know nothing?
They devour my people as though eating bread;
they never call on God.
5 But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
where there was nothing to dread.
God scattered the bones of those who attacked you;
you put them to shame, for God despised them.
6 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When God restores his people,
let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
Yes, we do change in our outer lives–some prosper and accumulate wordly wealth. Others may prosper and accumulate spiritual wealth. In some cases both forms of wealth are realized–but mankind has this tendency to stick to a basic, selfish nature. “The fool says in his heart, “There is no GOD”. Verse 1a. This obviously happened long ago and is still happening today. That is the reason why we still need a Savior to intervene and stand in the gap for us. Jesus is our intercessor, and He is the one who declares the reality and righteousness of the Father. We have a warrior King on our side, and even within this historical timeframe; because of this historical timeframe; it is even more desperately important to see that the Kingdom of GOD is presented to the masses, and that the people are given opportunity for redemption and salvation.
David saw into the heart of man because of his own human experiences. He also saw into the heart of GOD because of his own spiritual encounters with GOD and personal deliverance. David speaks frankly and fervently here. He knows the mercy of GOD’s Spirit–the Comfort of His presence.
“God looks down from Heaven on all mankind, to see if there are any who understand, any who seek GOD” Verse 2. This statement was relevant tn David’s time–it is also relevant in our own time. Charlene

I’ve been hearing a lot about the prophecies of 2012. Many voices are speaking, and you cannot listen to them all. I try to stay focused on the Word of GOD which does not give us a specific date, time, or year but tells us that we will not know the specified time. Throughout this life we can either run and live in fear–or we can embrace the reality of God’s Holy Spirit living in us to comfort, guide and do effective work through us.
This Thanksgiving is special as is every Thanksgiving. The most quiet family holiday each year, Thanksgiving still remains a time to gather our loved ones around us and Thank GOD for the harvest. For some the harvest is vegetables–for others the harvest is souls. I Pray for a Blessed Thanksgiving for us all and that provision would be our Father’s desire for us. Charlene
1 Praise the LORD.[a]
Praise the LORD, my soul.
2 I will praise the LORD all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
3 Do not put your trust in princes,
in human beings, who cannot save.
4 When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;
on that very day their plans come to nothing.
5 Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the LORD their God.
6 He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
the sea, and everything in them—
he remains faithful forever.
7 He upholds the cause of the oppressed
and gives food to the hungry.
The LORD sets prisoners free,
8 the LORD gives sight to the blind,
the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down,
the LORD loves the righteous.
9 The LORD watches over the foreigner
and sustains the fatherless and the widow,
but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
10 The LORD reigns forever,
your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the LORD.
Sometimes it may appear as if the whole world is against you. You struggle every day to define your uneasiness and unrest in the midst of striving to do God’s will. A prophet is not always honored in his/her own country. Trust. That is the key to peace in the God who rules over heaven and earth. You may not always understand your circumstances, but you can depend on God’s Holy Spirit to walk with you through the hard times, and to rejoice with you when you overcome. Charlene
A psalm of David. When he fled from his son Absalom.
1 LORD, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!
2 Many are saying of me,
“God will not deliver him.”[b]
3 But you, LORD, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
4 I call out to the LORD,
and he answers me from his holy mountain.
5 I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 I will not fear though tens of thousands
assail me on every side.
7 Arise, LORD!
Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
8 From the LORD comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people.
Do you ever feel as if you are at a crossroads with no idea as to which direction to take? We all get here at different times in our lives and it is here that we have to proclaim that we have a deliverer. Making decisions that affect the Kingdom of God requires that we seek Him and listen well. The flesh wants to remain where it once felt safe. The spirit wants to soar. Psalm 6 is for those times when we are at our lowest ebb, the tide has gone out and we have dry bones. Search yourself and ask? How can I serve God best? You may be surprised at the answer. Charlene
For the director of music. With stringed instruments. According to sheminith.[b] A psalm of David.
1 LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger
or discipline me in your wrath.
2 Have mercy on me, LORD, for I am faint;
heal me, LORD, for my bones are in agony.
3 My soul is in deep anguish.
How long, LORD, how long?
4 Turn, LORD, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love.
5 Among the dead no one proclaims your name.
Who praises you from the grave?
6 I am worn out from my groaning.
All night long I flood my bed with weeping
and drench my couch with tears.
7 My eyes grow weak with sorrow;
they fail because of all my foes.
8 Away from me, all you who do evil,
for the LORD has heard my weeping.
9 The LORD has heard my cry for mercy;
the LORD accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies will be overwhelmed with shame and anguish;
they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.

God gives me a Psalm more than once. I have found that that Psalm 5 applies everyday, so I am reposting it. Have a wonderful day in Christ. Charlene
Do you ever feel as if you need to be vindicated? Do your circumstances seem overwhelming ? There is a God in Heaven who cares about you and your circumstances. This beautiful Psalm 5 written by David will make you gain hope, strength, and joy, and, with the fullness of the knowledge of Christ, you can move forward knowing that your Sovereign Lord and His hosts are watching your back. Praise Him all you people!!!!!! Charlene
For the director of music. For pipes. A psalm of David.
1 Listen to my words, LORD,
consider my lament.
2 Hear my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.
3 In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.
4 For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
with you, evil people are not welcome.
5 The arrogant cannot stand
in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;
6 you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
you, LORD, detest.
7 But I, by your great love,
can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down
toward your holy temple.
8 Lead me, LORD, in your righteousness
because of my enemies—
make your way straight before me.
9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;
with their tongues they tell lies.
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
12 Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
Psalm 61: 1-5 Living Bible The Prayer of a Troubled Heart
“O GOD, listen to me! Hear my prayer! For wherever I am, though far away at the ends of the earth, I will cry to you for help. When my heart is faint and overwhelmed, lead me to the mighty, towering Rock of Safety. For you are my refuge, a high tower where my enemies can never reach me. I shall live forever in your tabernacle–Oh, to be safe beneath the shelter of your wings! For you have heard my vows, O GOD, to praise you everyday, and you have given me the blessings you reserve for those who reverence your name”.
Psalm 30: 4 Living Bible GOD’s Deliverance
“Oh, sing to Him, you saints of His; give thanks to His Holy Name. His anger lasts a moment; His favor lasts for life! Weeping may go on all night, but in the morning there is Joy”.
