This week we are studying Psalms 2 and 110
Psalm 2
1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.
5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12Kiss 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.
My favorite verse in Chapter 2 is verse 12. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him. Such simple and plain words, yet we lean upon are own strength so often.
Psalm 110
1The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
2The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
3Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
4The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
5The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
6He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
7He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
Yet another promise from God: He will make our enemies our footstool if we would just sit as His right hand. God has promised to fight our battles first if we will only allow Him. What is keeping you from allowing God to fight your battles?


  1. Isn't it so many times we won't let Him fight our battles. We love control, don't we? But..I think if someone told me that they'd sit in line for me at the DMV so I don't have to..I'd say..Cool..go for it. But here is God saying, "I'll take on your burdens for you." And I say..."Nope. I've got this one.... God, I can do it!"

  2. It is very sad. I often have this picture in my head of being bullied by someone. God is standing next to me waiting for me to ask for His help and I don't. Crazy!
