Psalm 2 begins by asking this question:
Why are the nations in an uproar
And the peoples devising a vain thing? – Psalm 2:1
(It may look like two questions, but the nature of Hebrew poetry is to repeat and intensify a single idea in a couplet. That is, whereas in English poetry the words rhyme, in Hebrew poetry it’s the ideas that rhyme.)
The psalm goes on to give its own answer to the question:
The kings of the earth take their stand
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,
“Let us tear their fetters apart
And cast away their cords from us!”
He who sits in the heavens laughs,
The Lord scoffs at them. – Psalm 2:2-4
This is what is happening today. The world is in great turmoil, but the Lord is not shaken. Because He is not shaken, neither should we who trust in Him be shaken.
He who becomes president of our country matters to us much less than He who has already become King of the universe.
Jesus Christ reigns supreme! Those who look to Him find refuge in any and every circumstance.
