May God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may his foes flee before him. May you blow them away like smoke— as wax melts before the fire, may the wicked perish before God.

– Psalm 68:1-2 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

This Psalm was probably written as a celebration of God’s deliverance in the wilderness, but it also takes us to the power of the cross. When Jesus died, He took the power of death and sin and broke its power. The enemy of sin has been scattered; the power of death has been blown away by the wind. The story of Easter is one of victory. Wickedness will melt before the fire of the Holy Spirit. We can celebrate His power to deliver, for Jesus Christ has purchased us from every nation.
