The enemy my footstool…haha
The Lord says to my lord:
“Sit at my right hand,
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet.
It just hit me this scripture!!! We hear in the New Testament that Jesus is now at the right hand of the father. And where does the bible say we are seated? Ephesian 2:6 says, “We are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus too”.
Now, if Jesus has all the victory; that means nothing can touch Him. In this scripture in Psalms David is referring to Jesus who is to come. And you see the Father talking to the Son. The Fathers says to Jesus “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet” How much power does the footstool have? I feel like laughing. lol. As I can see why God would laugh at his enemies, because they have no power to touch Him.
Jesus is resting in Majesty and authority and the enemy is defeated. God says we are seated there with Him. Jesus certainly isn’t worried. So if we are seated with Him in heavenly place in Christ Jesus. How should we be seated to? Rested with Him, while He makes our enemies a footstool. Right? When you use a footstool, your really are in a relaxed and rested position. Do you agree? Yes.. Well that’s how Jesus wants you to see yourself with Him.
“Seated on high in Him, with the enemy under your feet as a footstool”.
What if every time the enemy attacked you, you just saw the enemy under your feet while you rested and just laughed at him….. What if his attacks just solidified more his powerlessness as a footstool? Would you just want to laugh because you know your in victory and the enemy has no hope or power? I think so. The joy of the Lord is your strength, and joy in trials is what we need. If you would see things from your position in Christ in heavenly places, I’m sure some of you are going to get your joy back!!!
Now it is also interesting; In Ephesian 2:6 Paul refers to Jesus as “Christ Jesus”. Christ means: anointed, Messiah. I feel that Paul was pointing out that Jesus was “anointed”, which means “smeared with oil”. So now that we are in Christ, would that mean we are “smeared with oil (anointed) too”.
So today, see yourself where you are in Christ: untouchable, victorious, undefeated, rested, smeared with oil, filled with joy and laugher.
The enemy is literally under your feet (our footstool).
