Summer in Psalms Interactive Bible Study – June 2

This Bible study in Psalms is intended to be interactive, as a stepping stone from reading God’s Word to journaling with Him. The Discover One Thing ministry focuses on use of the SOAP method of Bible Study (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) during our daily time at the feet of Jesus. To learn more, check out the “What’s SOAP?” tab above. Please read the Psalm below, let God speak to You through it, then post a response in the Comments section on our website’s home page. Your response could be any of the following related to the Psalm: scripture verse that stood out to you, observation, application, prayer, question, prayer request, or response to another’s comment. And check back to see where the conversation leads us! Together we can encourage one another and grow closer to God!

The Book of Psalms contains responses to God by individuals and the community in worship. We pray through this study that all of us will focus on the majesty of God and humble ourselves before Him in worship, no matter our circumstance.

Psalm 2

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.”

The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
    the Lord scoffs at them.
He rebukes them in his anger
    and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
“I have installed my king
    on Zion, my holy mountain.”

I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:

He said to me, “You are my son;
    today I have become your father.
Ask me,
    and I will make the nations your inheritance,
    the ends of the earth your possession.
You will break them with a rod of iron;
    you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
    be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear
    and celebrate his rule with trembling.
12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry
    and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
    Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

  1. Seeing Jesus in Psalm 2: his anointed (vs. 2), my king (vs. 6), my son (vs. 7), son (vs. 12). I am also God’s daughter when I recognize and believe that God is my Father through Jesus His Son. Chain me up, God; I want Your refuge!

  2. Verse 1 : “Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?” This seems to be what I see, not only in the world around me, but it’s a standing date — up close and personal in my own life.

    I welcome these trials and I’m always up for the challenge either: worldly and personally, yet it doesn’t mean that things don’t get heavy at times but verse 4 : “The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.”, keeps me going strong.

    Remembering what Revelations 22:11 says, “Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy.”

    You know that it has to be this way for a little while longer…but until that glorious day when You come for us….I Pray that with Your help, I will continue to be holy!!!

  4. Psalm 2 has lots of good imagery on the characteristics of our God, just like y’all have shown. With God as a place of refuge, I just feel His mighty arm holding me close and sheltering me from the world.
