Psalm 2: (Link to Biblegateway)
Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trembling. (v11)
Serve -Bond-servant, keep in bondage
There is rejoicing in service and submission to God. It goes against the way of world.
Submit control to God
Kiss was an act of subjugation or being under control
Submit to the God in humility and affection
Take refuge in Him (v13)
Blessed are all, they that put their trust in Him. (KJV)
Those who defy God are broken, but those who depend on Him are blessed.
Will I choose to be broken or blessed?
I want to be depender not a defier.
In verse 1, David reprimands the people for conspiring against God. In our word study today, I wanted to dig into the word conspire and ask a tough question.
Conspire– the Hebrew word is Ragash (raw-gash). It means:
- to be in a tumult (a general outbreak, riot, uprising, or other disorder) or commotion
- to conspire, plot
David accused the people of having this kind of heart and attitude toward God. I had to ask myself:
Do I conspire against God in my heart and attitude?
That is something to think about.
Today is Thankful Thursday. It is your day to proclaim, testify, and rejoice in something that you are thankful for. Shout it loud so the rafters of Heaven rattle. I will start: my husband has a job that provides healthcare so I was able to go to the doctor for my physical this week and pay only a co-pay.
Where is God stretching your faith? Me? He is stretching my faith as we wait for the load approval on our new house and the sell of our current home. I recite truth ALL day long.
