Waging Wars

Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain?

Psalm 2:1


Why do we wage war,
laying out plans to take from one another.
Kings,
dictators
and governors of state
plot their revolts
against their creator.

They shout,
let us be free,
let us throw off the cloak
of our ruler.
They mock the Lord
and maim His people
with spears and arrows.

Kings,
dictators
and governors of state,
you are not as strong
or wise
as you believe.
You are pawns in your own game.

The one God laughs
at your feeble efforts
to dethrone His chosen.
He warns them,
like the children they are,
still they step out with weapons of hate
and wage their wars.

Your nails will wound Him.
Your thorns will scar His brow.
But the cross
of splintering wood
will stand as a victory
until He rules again.
