Psalm 2:2 “The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One.”
Psalm 2:3 “Let us break their chains,” they say, “and throw off their fetters.”
[What an amazing statement of arrogant ignorance. As if a few grasshoppers could prevent a farmer from plowing his land; as if a few children could prevent a snowstorm from coming; as if a man could make time stand still; as if humans could prevent the planets from circling the sun.
Lord, these kings view your good guidelines as chains, negative and restrictive, binding and wrong. They desire to be like you, deciding themselves what is good and evil . They lust after an independence that cannot be, for they are too small, too weak, too warped to carry it.
Only you are able to be God, O Lord. You are Triune and Holy, completely other, sufficient in yourself, without any sin, pure, powerful, perpetual and positive. You do not chain us with your commands, but give them to protect us. You do not call us into oppression, but into joy, love and grace, into relationship, warmth and goodness. You are the One to be revered, honored, praised and obeyed.
And in obeying you there is true freedom, for you lead us out of the prison cell of self into the Kingdom of Light, into the embrace of Christ who completes us, welcomes us into His family, and equips us for special service.]
Psalm 2:4 “The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.”
[The illusion of men successfully fighting God is entirely ludicrous–delusional, foolish, ridiculous and futile. It is both laughable and evil. There is no chance for them, for only with and in God are men able to triumph. He is the competent Conqueror, the wonderful Winner, the coming King.
It is His nature to overcome, for His character is the measure of what is right and good and positive. His being is so powerful, so mighty, so strong, that on one can move one finger without his permission.
You, Lord God, are awesome and worthy of worship through obedience. I bow before you so that my life today be a source of honor for you, bringing joy to your great heart.]
