Devotion – Psalms 2

S – The kings of the earth take their stand, and the rulers conspire together 

against the Lord and his Anointed One:, “Let’s tear off their chains and throw their ropes off of us.” 

The one enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord ridicules them.

Psalms 2:2–4 CSB

O – 

  • There are people whose words and actions are against God.
  • Laughs –sâchaq, saw-khak’; a prim. root; to laugh (in pleasure or detraction);  implies. to play:— deride, have in derision, laugh, make merry, mock (-er), play, rejoice, (laugh to) scorn, be in (make) sport.

             The New Strong’s Dictionary of Hebrew and Greek Words

A – All three times in the Bible where God laughs, it is in mockery of those who come against Him.  As a believer, it brings awe to the magnitude of God’s unlimited power and strength.  Gal. 6:7-8 says “God will not be mocked.”  We live in a time when people are taking liberty with their views and actions toward God.   

R – Lord, I repent of any time I chose my own way over yours. I desire to reverence who you are while building a relationship with you to know you better.
