Psalm 117: 1-2
Praise the LORD, all you nations;
extol him, all you peoples.
For great is his love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.
Praise the LORD.
For a person who doesn’t believe in God, in a way, there is no God. There are no rules to live by, no meaning to the events in life, and certainly no one to turn to when things get rough. If we don’t believe in God, in a way, He isn’t there. Take smoking as an analogy. Some people don’t believe that smoking will have any negative effect. They feel good and enjoy, believing that they will be fine. Until one day they find themselves with health issues, with clogged arteries, high blood pressure and diabetes. That’s when they begin to believe that there is such a thing as living healthy, and so they begin to live differently. The same thing will happen in messianic times. Many people live life as though God does not exist. So in a way, for them, He doesn’t. He can’t be there to comfort and guide them if they refuse to see Him! But one day, it will be clear to the whole world that God does exist. One day, everyone will accept Him as God and live their lives accordingly. Make “that day” today. The more we believe in God, the more we will experience His love and guidance right now.
