Psalm 2

Before you continue reading, read through Psalm 2 and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal a new truth to you today.

As I read through Psalm 2, these verses stood out:

Verses 1 - 3:  “Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.
Verse 7: "I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:"
and the end of Verse 12: "Blessed are all who take refuge in him."

This last phrase, “blessed are all who take refuge in him” sums up this chapter. Even if people and nations come against the Lord, I have the choice to proclaim and declare what is true about Him. In the end, I can trust that I can take refuge and safety in the Lord. I know that in His presence, I am blessed. This complements Psalm 1:3 that says, “They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.” Even though we are planted in our current situation, we can place our roots down in the presence of God. It is in His refuge where we are safe and will bear fruit even in this season.

Prayer Reflection:  
Thank You, God that I can take refuge in you. No matter what the circumstance and situation, You are in control. I declare and proclaim that You are good! As I abide in You, Lord, help me understand Your will where You have placed me. I say “yes”, to You today, Lord! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Action Steps:
  1. Journal and write down anything the Lord has revealed to you today in the reading of Psalm 2.
  2. Have you said “no” to the Lord lately? What “yes” is the Lord requiring of you today?
  3. Text or call five friends to encourage them and send them a prayer reminding them of God’s goodness.
