Psalm 10:4 (NKJV): “The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts.”
Oh, how true this is. It is even true of those who claim to know God yet pray to something other than God.
When we decide to place something above God, i.e., cultural ideologies or cultural acceptance, or our own works for salvation, we have placed our proud countenance above God. God is no longer in our thoughts when we do this.
This is true because we have made ourselves or culture God. The One True God is not in the thoughts of a man who prays to any other god for cultural significance.
This kind has submitted to the ways of the world and the desires of the world. They are wicked and, “The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts.” (Ps. 10:4).
Also, “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good” (Ps. 14:1).
We, the church the body of Christ must stand strong and speak boldly for the Lord. Culture is not God, only God is God. We must take a stand. Whatever happens here is of nothing compared to the glories that await those who stand strong for the Lord. Romans 8:18, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
Stand strong Christian and you will have glories that are so far above any thought you ever had.
