(Psalm 2:2,4,6 NIV) “2The kings of the earth take their stand and the rules gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One.  4The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.  6I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill.”

 September 11.

That date is now burned forever as a national memory for every American. It is a “day of infamy” just like December 7, the day of the great attack on Pearl Harbor.

The attackers may have framed their actions as a high and noble service to their deity, but most of the world saw 9/11 for what it really was – cowardly murder of unarmed and innocent civilians. How can anyone feel safe anymore? Are the wheels and hinges coming off our civilization? Will evil triumph over good? Will Satan triumph over Christ?

Believers for centuries have cried out to the Lord God for wisdom and protection. We need help in making sense of a world gone crazy, and we need divine and angelic protection in a world gone violent. Have you ever feared that God’s plans have failed and that the throne in heaven is empty?  Let King David’s shout of confidence be yours too: “The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord and against his Anointed One. The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. ‘I have installed my King on Zion, on my holy hill'” (Psalm 2:2,4,6).

The King is alive.  He laughs and scoffs at the powers and plans of this world.  There is no one or nothing that can derail His plan or His power.  He rules from His heavenly Zion and governs all things according to His plan.  No matter what happens here on this earth there is no need to fear, no need to give up hope because our God is in control!  He has His plan and His plan is to one day come back and take us all to the new Zion in heaven to be with him because of Jesus!

Never forgetting who is in control, just like you,
