Read Psalm 2

Monday
Read Psalm 2
2:1 Why do the nations conspire, and the peoples plot in vain?

2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and his anointed, saying,

2:3 "Let us burst their bonds asunder, and cast their cords from us."

2:4 He who sits in the heavens laughs; the LORD has them in derision.

2:5 Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying,

2:6 "I have set my king on Zion, my holy hill."

2:7 I will tell of the decree of the LORD: He said to me, "You are my son; today I have begotten you.

2:8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession.

2:9 You shall break them with a rod of iron, and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel."

2:10 Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth.

2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, with trembling kiss his feet, or he will be angry, and you will perish in the way; for his wrath is quickly kindled. Happy are all who take refuge in him.
Think 
This Psalm reminds us of the inevitable majesty of God.  The words of verse 7 are repeated at the transfiguration, words that remind us that Jesus is the one true Lord of the universe. 
Pray
 Happy are all who take refuge in him.
