I want to speak to you today on just two words, '' TRUST GOD!'' Just those two words, with a big exclamation point after them. Trust God! Trust God! Oh, wherever you are and whatever your condition, turn with all your heart's trust unto God and to His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
My text is found in the 12th verse of Psalm 2. ''Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him.'' That Hebrew word translated ''blessed'' is the Hebrew word meaning literally, ''Oh, the blessedness of all those that put their trust in Him.'' Oh, the blessedness! It's an exclamation. The Psalmist contemplates the blessedness of the man that trusts God until he exclaims, ''Oh, the blessedness of all those who put their trust in Him!''
You remember this Psalm that speaks of the heathen raging and the people imagining vain things and the rulers taking council against the Lord and against His anointed. We are in a dark hour today as our leaders assemble together to talk about peace, and they do not even pray to God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Surely we are in a dark hour when the rulers of the world do not recognize God and His Christ. But listen, ''He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh.'' The real child of God knows Someone Who sits in the heavens. That means that He is above earth.
He is above man; He is above the diplomats and the leaders of our nations, and He is still God, sitting on His throne.
Then He tells us about His King whom He hath appointed, the Lord Jesus Christ, in verse 6. ''Yet
have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.'' Then verse 7. This king is none other than His own
beloved son. ''I will tell the decree the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my son. This day have I
begotten thee. Ask of me and I will give thee the heathen for thine inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.'' Jesus Christ will control this earth. He is the world's only hope, and he is coming again.
