“God looks down from heaven on the children of man to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God” (Psalm 53:2 ESV)

The psalmist David wrote that God is continually looking for one that would seek Him with understanding. The implication was that there were none among the “children of man” that truly sought God. They might seek a place or a theology, or even God’s hand. But who was seeking the Lord’s face with understanding? David didn’t see anyone. And so, he exclaimed, “Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!” (Psa. 53:6). David’s prayer was answered when God sent Jesus. For it was Jesus who clarified what it meant to seek God with understanding. He said that God is seeking those that would worship Him “in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23-24). Then, He revealed Himself as the Christ, the One by whom we might be born again in the Spirit, and the One who is the Truth by which we might worship God with understanding. God is still looking. He is looking to see what we will do with Jesus.

‘The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity; there is none who does good” (Psalm 53:1 ESV)

The atheist usually lays claim to an intellectual position to defend their unbelief. However, the Bible says that their true problem is not reason, but a lack of righteousness. It isn’t the atheist’s mind that rejects God, but his heart. And having refused God entrance, he can find no better candidate for divinity than himself. So, atheism is really humanism at heart. Yet God “looks down” to see who will seek His face. Who will open both their hearts and minds to Him? Those that truly seek God will find Him. This is wisdom.

“Only fools say in their hearts, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good!” (Psalm 53:1 NLT)

Atheism is a heart not a head condition. The atheist claims intellectual reasons for unbelief, but the root actually lies in a “corrupt” heart. This condition of the heart is like a computer program with corrupted files, it does not respond as its designer planned. Intellectual proofs will not change a corrupted heart. A spiritual heart transplant is required.
