The kings of the earth take their stand, And the rulers take counsel together Against the LORD and His Anointed (the Davidic King, the Messiah, the Christ), saying, “Let us break apart their [divine] bands [of restraint] And cast away their cords [of control] from us.” He who sits [enthroned] in the heavens laughs [at their rebellion]; The [Sovereign] Lord scoffs at them [and in supreme contempt He mocks them] (Psalms 2:2-4).
We are given no control over the people of the earth. As parents, we are responsible for our children that is, their upbringing, setting the moral compass before them. When our children go out into the world, they are endowed with the choice to follow the moral compass we set early in life or follow the ways of the world. In G_D’s word, we see many examples of failed leadership, communities in collapse, and people’s lives on the verge of destruction. From these examples, we are given the choice “be mocked” or “be uplifted,”
Thank you for every day of our lives. You are the Alpha (the beginning) and the Omega (the ending) of our faith. From the world, we receive phony food and fraudulent offers but in you, we receive food that feeds our empty spirits (John 6:55-58). Oh Lord our Lord how awesome is your name in all of the earth. I will sing of your majesty” (Psalms 8:2).
