“As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.”
The ultimate battle in this universe is the battle between good and evil. The war for obedience rages, as it did in the Garden of Eden. Though the enemy tries to lead us into disobedience, Jesus is still King over all. Will we obey God and submit to His Lordship, or will we let the devil take rule over us?Though the enemy tries to lead us into disobedience, Jesus is still King over all. Click To Tweet
Nations rage against God and His rule and come up with their own laws to self-govern and mock God. Together they plot and conceive wicked plans to ensnare the righteous, spill their blood, and bring much trials upon them. Enraged they wave their fists against God and His anointed one. They strive to throw God’s chains off of them. The reality of the matter is that those chains are Chains of Love (Hosea 11:4). Nations come and go, kingdoms rise and fall, kings are crowned and succeeded, but Jesus is the same, yesterday, today, and forevermore. Amen!Nations come and go, kingdoms rise and fall, kings are crowned and succeeded, but Jesus is the same, yesterday, today, and forevermore. Amen! Click To Tweet
In Psalm 2:11-12, the Psalmist exhorts us to Serve the Lord, submit to Him, and take refuge in Him. This is the line of division between a life of blessedness and a life of brokenness.
The Lord has set Jesus as King in His Holy Hill. Likewise, we should crown Jesus as “King Jesus, Lord and Savior” of our life and obey Him with fear and trembling (Psalm 2:7). In addition, we should diligently study the Laws of God so that we may serve God with fear and trembling (Psalm 2:8). Only then can we confidently decree the decrees of the Lord with boldness. How can we tell others of the Laws of God, His ways, and His Love, if we don’t even know them ourselves? Those that proclaim the decrees of God are truly children of God (Psalm 2:9). We are created to obey God, and to bring rebellious man back into a relationship of loving obedience (Ephesians 2:1-2, 11). That was what man lost in the Garden of Eden.
This is the hallmark sign of a true child of God: obedience. Those that disobey are not born of God. In fact, Jesus makes it quite clear that man has one of two fathers: God or the devil (John 8:38, 44). It is to these that God will truly say, “You are my son, you are my daughter” (Psalm 2:7).
The response from God towards those who serve Him with fear and trembling is truly a blessing. God says, “Ask me and I will answer”. Please note, God is not saying “Ask anything of me”. Rather, it is “Ask according to my will, and I will answer”. If we are filled with the Word of God, we will know how to pray. On top of that, God will guide us in prayer too (Psalm 2:8).God says, "Ask me and I will answer". Please note, God is not saying "Ask anything of me". Rather, it is "Ask according to my will, and I will answer". Click To Tweet
What will we choose today? Blessedness or brokenness? Those who have raged against God are no more and God still reigns undisputed upon His throne. Let us come and humble ourselves before God and kiss His ring, and He will accept us today.
