Saturday Psalm (2c)

Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.  Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.  Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.  Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Psalm 2:10-12

In this Psalm, we have seen the fact that the Lord laughs at those political leaders who try to reject Him.  He confounds their purposes and keeps them confused and in derision.  God is in control.  God is always in control and is in every way in control.  It is for these reasons that we come to these last three verses in the Psalm.

It is because the Lord is always in control that we are advised to “be wise now therefore…”  He gives us all the wisdom that we need and want in the Bible.  It is readily available to us.  He makes the rules, and we need wisdom to know what they are and how to follow them.

It is because the Lord is always in control that we are advised to “Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.”  God is so powerful that He could crush us like a tiny ant.  We should be thankful every day for His mercy!

It is because the Lord is always in control that we are told that “Blessed are al they that put their trust in him.”  Considering that God is in control of everything, it makes sense that He is the One we should trust.  So many put their trust in man, who has no power at all over God.  God is the only One worthy of our trust, worship and devotion!
