Psalm 2:3 in the context of verse 2 “The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One.” [this refers initially to king David, but prophetically to Jesus the anointed one, the Christ]
Verse 3 “Let us break their chains,” they say, “and throw off their fetters.”
[What an amazing statement of ignorance and arrogance. This is like thinking that a few grasshoppers could prevent a farmer from plowing his land; that a few children could prevent a snowstorm from coming; as if people could prevent the planets from circling the sun; as if a man could make time stand still.
Lord, these kings view your good guidelines as negative and restrictive, binding as chains. They desire to be like you, deciding 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, you call us into freedom and joy, love and grace, relationship and goodness (John 15). You are the One to be revered, honored, praised and obeyed. In obeying you there is true freedom, for you lead us out of the prison cell of self into the light of Christ who completes us, welcomes us into His family, and equips us for special service.]
Psa 2:4 “The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.”
[The illusion of men successfully fighting God is ludicrous, delusional, foolish, futile and ridiculous. 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 great Conqueror, the wonderful Winner, the overcoming King. It is his nature to win, 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. May my life be a source of honor for you today. May I not fight against you, but join you in what you are doing.]
