Psalm 36 is really beautiful, and the section from verse 5 on was used to great effect for a great song from Third Day called “Your Love O Lord” that many of us sing in church from time to time.
Today I’m struck by the first four verses.
1 Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts.
They have no fear of God at all.
2 In their blind conceit,
they cannot see how wicked they really are.
3 Everything they say is crooked and deceitful.
They refuse to act wisely or do good.
4 They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots.
Their actions are never good.
They make no attempt to turn from evil.
How often in my life are these really my life verses and I don’t admit it, because I “cannot see how wicked” I really am. Lord, without me coming to you and admitting it… nothing ever changes or gets better. Don’t let Sin whisper to your heart… instead… make a confession, make a turn, make a change…
