Refuge | Psalm 2:7-12

Psalm 2:7-12 I will proclaim the LORD’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father. Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. You will break them with a rod of iron; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.” Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Psalm 2 is a messianic or royal psalm written for the coronation of an Old Testament king, but it also looked forward to the crowning of King Jesus. This portion of the psalm begins with two declarations and ends with an exhortation.

The first declaration is echoed in Matthew 3 right after Jesus was baptized. As the dove, representing the Holy Spirit, lands on Jesus, a voice from heaven says, “You are my son . . . ” God declares to the world his love for Jesus. The second declaration is found in John’s letter to the church in Thyatira (Revelation 2:27). Jesus holds authority over all the nations. Regardless of how chaotic things may seem, he will rule with undeniable power.

The ending exhortation is a call to surrender. All people are to serve the Lord with the awe and respect he deserves. He is God and we are not. However, fearing the Lord is not a cowering in the corner type of emotion. Instead of running from him, we run to him. In him alone we find refuge, protection and shelter from the inevitable challenges of life.

Father, may we surrender to the King each day. Help us to serve him with a full-out passion and demonstrate that he is the Lord of our lives. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
