When God Laughs

“But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them” (Psalms 2:4).

David spoke of nations noisily assembling against him. They devised plots in vain, as the Kings of the earth prepared for battle. They took council together against the Lord and against his anointed people. “Let us break apart their [divine] bands [of restraint] And cast away their cords [of control] from us” (Psalms 2:3). God’s response to this is laughter and mockery. “It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in” (Isaiah 40:22).

God brings princes to nothing and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness. David later said in Psalm 2, that God is ready to give us the nations for our inheritance. God will allow us to possess the ends of the earth. “You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel” (Psalm 2:9). David’s warning was that Kings and rulers of the earth should exercise wisdom. They should serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling. Our God is a great and terrible God, who keeps the covenant of mercy to those who love him and obey his commandments (Nehemiah 1:5).

There is no king like our God, no ruler as strong and mighty as our God. World leaders exercise dominance and threaten to take control. “But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap” (Malachi 3:2). Our weapons are not carnal, but mighty through God to pull down strongholds. We laugh at the empty threats of the enemy. We laugh at his attempts to cause us fear, because we will not be defeated with the Lord on our side. The battle belongs to God, so we will hold our peace and God will fight for us. We will never be defeated with the Lord on our side.

“but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he sees that his day is coming” (Psalm 37:13).

  1. Yep Anneta, we need to be reminded of this:
    There is no king like our God, no ruler as strong and mighty as our God. World leaders exercise dominance and threaten to take control. “But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap.” 👍🏼

    Girl, if only many of our world leaders would get this! We can only continue to pray, but I agree, God is probably shaking His head at our non-stop stupidity and wickedness. 😣
