psalm 2 | ponders

My adversaries have increased. Many rise up against me. Many say, “There is no deliverance in God.”
The Lord is a shield about me; my only glory and the One who lifts my head.
When I cry to the LORD with my voice, He answers me from His holy mountain.
 I lay down and sleep and awake
For the LORD sustains me.
I will not be afraid
Of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me round about.
For You have smitten all my enemies on the cheek; You have shattered the teeth of the wicked.
Salvation belongs to the LORD;
His blessing is upon His people.
Psalm 2 :1-8 (summarized, present tensed, and personalized)

I want to be a person sustained by the LORD only. Someone who finds no strength in man, or in self – someone who finds no virtue in pride or in selfish gain – but someone who looks only to God’s Holy Mountain; someone who only waits on God for strength and for words and for life. The Lord goes – and I follow behind. I want to be a person without fear or worry; fully aware that this world is soon to be a shadow of the past. Listening, following, striving, serving the only One that really matters. The world is shaky, unstable and unpredictable. But there is a peace and a knowledge that comes without seeing – a reassurance by knowing that all will turn out alright, even the worst of circumstances. For God works wonders through pain – God can work miracles through hopelessness. And though this world is one stormy ocean beating mercilessly upon its occupants, there is a light in the storm, a refuge in the time of trouble.
