He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision (Ps. 2:4 ESV)
You are probably aware that our God also laughs! If not, the verse above gives you one of the many scriptural verses in which the Lord laughs at His adversaries. But what made the Lord laugh in the verse above? The previous verses give us the context of this divine laughter:
Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain?The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying,”Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.”He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision (Ps. 2:1-4 ESV)
The leaders and rulers of the earth held secret meetings on how they can destroy and eradicate the people of God. In today’s terms, they were strategizing on how to destroy Christianity or remove every Christian influence from society. Does that sound familiar to you, no matter what nation of the earth you are living in today?
The Lord, who sees the secret meetings, and knows the plans and intents of the hearts of men laughs at these men and women. He sees the futility of their plans, and knows their end. The Lord sees what the enemies of your life are trying to do and He laughs because He knows you are more than a conqueror!
Are there people alive today who have vowed like the rulers in the verse above to destroy Christians? Will the gates of hell prevail against the Church that God is building? ( Matt. 16:18).
APPLY THE WORD
You have already been declared a victor before you engaged in a fight. Join the Lord to laugh at your enemies and not be afraid of them!
Thank the Lord for the assurance of His presence that protects you and for the assurance of His glory in eternity once your stay on earth is over.
