Refuge

Re:Verse reading–Psalm 2, Psalm 110 (day four)
From the beginning of time, man has rebelled against God.  All through history, kings and rulers have sought to eliminate God and His authority over them.  God, the Sovereign ruler, simply laughs at their attempts.  In Acts 4:25, after Peter and John had been arrested and warned not speak any more about Jesus, they looked back to Psalm 2.  They saw that Herod and Pilate, along with the gentiles and the peoples of Israel, had been acting according to God’s plan.  The disciples asked God to fulfill His promise in Psalm 2 and to extend His hand against His detractors.  The result of their prayer was that the building was shaken and they were filled with the Holy Spirit.  When you face persecution and see God’s kingdom assaulted by the world, have you prayed Psalm 2, asking Him to stand against the opposition.  His Word still stands and will never be overcome by man.  “How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!”

  1. I would like to take the opportunity of thanking you for the professional instruction I have always enjoyed browsing your site. We are looking forward to the actual commencement of my college research and the complete prep would never have been complete without coming over to your blog. If I can be of any help to others, I would be glad to help as a result of what I have discovered from here.
