Enemies Become Footstools

“The Lord says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool”” (Psalm 110:1).

David prophesied in Psalm concerning what God said to Jesus Christ after he conquered death on the cross. “Sit until I make your enemies your footstool.” We know that Jesus is seated at the right hand of the father and he is daily making intercession for us. The greater one in us is greater than he that is in the world. The Prince of the world hates us because we belong to Jesus. The Devil wants so badly to sift us like wheat. But Jesus has prayed for us that our faith will not fail. And after we have overcome, we strengthen other saints around us (Luke 22:31-32).

Our victory is set because the greater one is fighting for us. The battle belongs to God so we do not try to fight in our own strength. Our battle position is prayer and worship while we submit ourselves and trust God to gain victory on our behalf. All things on earth are subject to the lordship of Jesus Christ. “And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church” (Ephesians 1:22).

We are also seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, far above principalities and powers (Ephesians 2:6). Our sitting with Christ means that the enemy is under our feet. Our seating gives us a vantage point and a place of rest. We do not need to fight in our own strength but rest in Jesus. No evil will overcome us when we understand who we are in Christ Jesus.

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows” (Psalm 23:5).
