Pondering the Psalms - Psalm 2

Each Sunday I am going to choose a Psalm and write down some brief thoughts on it.

Today I'm looking at Psalm 2

This Psalm falls into three parts:

V. 1-3
People and Nations in Opposition to God.

V. 4-9
God sees all.
The Lord is on the Throne, He is in control.

V. 10-11
Warning to the rulers that if they do not serve God they will perish.

Overall Theme

No matter who thinks he is better than the Lord and God's people, he has to remember that Jesus is Lord and will do with them as He wills.

This Psalm encourages us to know that God is in supreme control.

People & nations may seem to be making the world a horrible place to live in 
but there will be an end to this.

The end will be GOOD for those who have trusted in God.


  1. Amen. I love the Psalms. They are so full of wisdom.

  2. In spite of everything that went on then...WAY BACK THEN!... and what's going on around and about our world now, I can count on Him to break through and protect and keep His people and draw more nearly to Him if possible. A sorrowful world. I've read Psalms at least a hundred times and I haven't not understood that very clearly. Thank you for sharing!

  3. "I have installed my King on Zion, my Holy hill." Amen. It doesn't matter what the rulers of this world try to do, God ultimately has the last say. We know how it ends. He is the KIng of Kings.

  4. Thank you for this verse today: Blessed are all those who take refuge in Him. Joining you from The Weekend Brew

  5. Amen. With all the happenings in the world today, this is a great reminder that God is in control. Thank you for linking up with Thankful Thursdays.
