Psalms: Nourishment for the Soul (part two)
Psalm two is a royal Psalm celebrating the enthronement of Israel’s king. The author (many believe it is David) describes rebellious nations who deplore Yahweh and His anointed king. God responds by reminding them with words and deeds that He will be sovereign even over people who reject Him, and He will rule over the earth through His chosen king. The Psalm ends with an invitation to surrender voluntarily to God’s supremacy. For Christians today, we strive to submit voluntarily to the rule of God over our lives while we joyfully anticipate submitting to the rule of Christ over His Kingdom.
