Psalm 14:1

The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”

Do you know what an agnostic, dyslexic, insomniac does? He stays up all night wondering if there really is a dog! Yes, it’s an old joke but there is a current sad reality to this.

The doubting agnostics in our midst live in endless bondage to uncertainty. They see what can only be attributed to God but they are afraid to commit to what is obvious. Many are so close yet so far. Then there are the virtual atheists who absolutely deny the existence of a personal God. Their foolish rejection of God’s clear revelations of Himself is mind-boggling. They are, therefore, without excuse (Romans 1:20). We, of course, pray God will give both the agnostic and the atheist a truth-seeking heart (Jeremiah 29:13; Matthew 7:7).  

However, the most troubling group of all are the practical atheists. These are the one who say they truly believe in God but live as if He doesn’t exist. They make us as confused as a dyslexic and as tired as an insomniac.

Perhaps it’s time to ask the God we truly believe in to show us more clearly how to walk in a manner that is pleasing to Him (2 Corinthians 5:9; Ephesians 5:10). May the God we know personally through faith in Jesus Christ give us the wisdom to let our light shine in such a way that even sleepy agnostics and blind atheists will see our good works and come to glorify our Heavenly Father because of us (cf. Matthew 5:16).
