Good morning y’all. Happy Saturday! Today we are reading Psalms 2. I read this chapter over and over in different versions and came to the conclusion this chapter was telling us about Jesus- The Messiah, The anointed one and the opposition that He will experience and how in the end God affirms him as his Son and gives victory.
Few things i observed that we can apply to our lives from the chapter
By the way my favorite verse was definately v7. “….. “The lord said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father.” I’m so glad God calls me his own. I know I don’t live up to his expectation all the time, but im glad he loves me still.
Here we go 🙂
V1 – 3:
1) Any decision or plan that is made outside of God is a useless and futile one.
2) As christians people will oppose us because we stand for the truth and do the right thing. In their hearts they know what we stand for is true but pride won’t let them accept the truth and therefore they look for a way to get rid of it hence the opposition.
3)They wanted to be free of God. As if it’s possible to rid oneself of God. God is everywhere whether we like it or not. How can a created thing suddenly wake up and say to the creator I don’t need you anymore. Perhaps the creation has forgotten the creator has the power to do and undo!
1)Gods plan will always prevail no matter how much people plot, complain, oppose and fight against us for standing for the truth. Good news is, as long as God is on our side, there ain’t no one that can ever be against us. See Romans (I am excited about that and I wanna make sure God is always on my side 🙂 )
V 7 -9:
Here we see the decree/promise God made to His chosen King.
1) “You are my son; Today i have become your father.”- God affirmed him as his own
2) “Only ask, and i will give you the nations as your inheritance…….” – God told him to ask and he will receive above and beyond.
3)”You will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots” – God told him he will have victory over them.
The promise that was made is also available to us today thanks to Jesus. Through him we are now sons and daughters of God. We are His chosen ones (1 Peter 2:9). All we need to do is ask. James says we do not have because we do not ask (James 4:2) . So what are you waiting for? Get to asking 🙂
1)Serve God with gladness and reverant fear.
2)Blessed are those who seek refuge and put their trust in God.
Dear Lord we thank you for today and for your word. Thanks for reminding us again that we are yours 🙂 . Thanks for reminding us you are on our side and therefore the enemies plans concerning us will not prevail. For as many that are facing opposition right now, we ask for your grace and strength to see them through and grace to trust you for victory. Thank you dear Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Thanks for joining today. I pray you have been blessed.
Tomorrow we start the book of Genesis. We going to the beginning where it all started. I’m excited and can’t wait to blog Genesis 🙂
Have a wonderful Saturday enjoying ur King and asking 🙂
