Friday Sundown Worship: Why do the Nations Rage?


David, Kind of Israel asked of God, “Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, 3 Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us.” Psalm 2:1-3

David really didn’t expect a reply when he asked this question, because there really is no reply. It was an expression of astonishment: “When you consider all the LORD has done for the nations, how can they rebel against Him!”

God has provided for all mankind’s basic needs. Dr. Luke in  says Acts 14:15-17 gives us these words, “Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men with the same nature as you, and preach to you that you should turn from these useless things to the living God, who made the heaven and earth, the sea, and all things that are in them, who in bygone generations allowed all nations to walk in their own ways. Nevertheless, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filled our hearts with food and gladness.”

So, how is it that so many rebel against God today considering all the wonderful things he has given us. You see, the only true freedom comes from submitting to God and doing His will. Freedom without authority is anarchy, and anarchy destroys.

A wise man once said, the first duty of every soul is to find not its freedom but its Master and within the master comes complete freedom.

Do you want to be free? Then stop raging against the one that sends rain upon wicked and the godly. Stop believing, the lie told by Satan is true instead believe that there is freedom with God. True freedom come only when we serve God.
