Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the LORD and against his anointed, saying, “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles”.
This scripture applies to us not only as nations but also as individuals. It can be used in your life and situations as well. When you serve God and try to lead a godly life, there will always be those who will turn on you and rise against you.
The apostles used this very same scripture when they first faced religious persecution in Jerusalem. However, in the same scripture, there’s also encouragement. When we cry out to God and share what burdens us, His response in Psalm 2:4 empowers us:
The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.
Even in the face of harsh persecution and uprising against us, God isn’t even phased. He laughs at the enemy’s plans and will turn them into dust.
Remember that when you’re praying for God’s protection against the enemy’s attacks, God laughs at the enemy’s plan against you.
If you are facing resistance and obstacles placed by the enemy in your path, remember; nothing the enemy can throw your way will ever overpower God’s protection and plan for your life.
