For you make me glad by your deeds, LORD; I sing for joy at what your hands have done. How great are your works, LORD, how profound your thoughts! Senseless people do not know, fools do not understand, that though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they will be destroyed forever. But you, LORD, are forever exalted. Psalm 92:4-8 NIV
How many times must we be told that fools lack understanding of most things because they are so wise in their own sight, they won’t listen to wise instruction?
Even if it looks like the foolish are progressing in their ways, we don’t have to concern ourselves–they are being set up by the enemy who has influenced them to fall because they have not realized that the devil doesn’t care about people–even those who follow his leading. When the captain only thinks of himself, others have no value to him, but then–that’s a poor foolish captain. And the devil is a foolish captain. He has yet to realize he has been defeated and will stay defeated until that time arrives when he spends eternity in the lake of fire–along with all those who refused to listen to wise instruction.
We are told that, “the fool has said in his heart there is no God,” and when others are convinced that there is no God, they do expose themselves as fools. Now, why would the devil convince people there is no God? If he can convince others there is no God, he can also convince people that he doesn’t exist and if he doesn’t exist, he can run rampant–creating all types of chaos and the fools will be deceived.
Those of us who know The Lord and His Word understand that if God acknowledges the works of Satan because He created him, then we should be wise enough to heed The Word and recognize when he is at work. “Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee!”
All the unrest, instability in nations, the hatred, the bigotry, all of it–are a result of the enemy’s influence in the mind and hearts of people who refuse to repent and acknowledge God. But no matter how many evildoers arise, they shall be cut down and stomped on and cast aside, making room for those who understand peace and love. For The Lord reigns forever in the hearts of all who love Him and we will be victorious in Jesus!
Will the prating fool–the one always running his/her mouth, boasting of themselves, bullying others and spouting empty threats ever understand that all the world, sees them as a fool with no wisdom and no value?
It is better to be quiet and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and be known a fool! Will the fool understand this?
Our God Reigns, Our God Reigns, Our God Reigns Forevermore!
