1Why are the nations in an uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing? 2The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, 3“Let us tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from us!” 4He who sits in the heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them. Psalm 2:1-4
To say these are tumultuous times is a gross understatement. The nations—our nation—is in an uproar. Collective veins are popping out of necks and vileness is spewed, if one has not been de-platformed (a new word in our society). This meant quite another thing for those daggling from a noose!
In a sense, there will be a turnabout, and it will be fair play for an Almighty Righteous God. He hears them rile and rage against him, and that is what they are doing, because He stands for and is all goodness.
He has let out the line and they are running with it, but his hook is deeply implanted in their jaws. These fools sense some gained advantage, a false sense of freedom, and in their rashness exploit every conceivable opportunity, and create new ones, only to be still tethered to God, who sets the hook even deeper. He laughs and scoffs as He reels them in. They will thrash about in a final spiteful fit, but they will be swiftly gaffed, brought aboard, and ultimately consumed with fire.
While the world reviles, roars and rages, we watch and wait and pray. We are on the right side.
In the meantime…
Worship the Lord with reverence and rejoice with trembling. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him. Psalm 2:11-12
