Psalms — Psalms 2 – God is God!

Day 2539: Halfway thru September already – Wow!

Scripture: Why are the nations in an uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from us!”

He who sits in the heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger and terrify them in His fury, saying, “But as for Me, I have installed My King upon Zion, My holy mountain.”

“I will surely tell of the decree of the LordHe said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Your possession. ‘You shall break them with a rod of iron, You shall shatter them like earthenware.’”

Now therefore, O kings, show discernment; take warning, O judges of the earth. Worship the Lord with reverence and rejoice with trembling. Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way, for His wrath may soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him! Psalms 2

Thoughts/questions: The first commandment is so vital, especially for leaders. It starts where we MUST start, “I am the Lord your God.” When rightly viewed, it is understandable that God can scoff and laugh when His creation sets themselves above Him.

We must bow before Him as our Lord and take refuge in Him. God won’t scoff at us and we will be blessed!

Suggested prayer: One True God of the Universe, You are the Lord, my God . . .
