Psalm 110:1 <<A Psalm of David.>> The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Relax! Let God do the fighting for you and it's a GUARANTEE that you'll come out on TOP!
The problem with mankind since the beginning of the world, is that we seem not to like to take instructions, directions and orders from others. We like to do our own thing all the time and not take advice. It is only when we crash and get into problems, we learn that help from OTHERS who are more experienced or who would have crossed a similar path already, could have ultimately caused us to receive a more positive and rewarding result.
There is certainly one thing that I love about GOD though. That is, even when we make serious mistakes, go our own way and do our own thing and fall into trouble, he always stands with his arms wide open to us saying, "Come back to me SON! Come back to me Daughter."
King David, pens quite a prophetic and powerful verse in Psalm 110:1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Let's break it down word by word or phrase by phrase so we all can see clearly what it means.
Firstly. . . If you check your Bibles, you will notice that this 1st LORD is written in capital letters while the other is written in common. (EXAMPLE) The LORD said unto my Lord. This denotes GOD the Father and God the Son or Messiah.
The LORD said--literally, "A saying of the Lord," (compare Psalms 36:1), a formula, used in prophetic or other solemn or express declarations.
My Lord--That the Jews understood this term to denote the Messiah their traditions show, and Christ's mode of arguing on such an assumption (Matthew 22:44)
Sit ... at my right hand--not only a mark of honor (1 Kings 2:19), but also implied participation of power (Psalms 45:9; Mark 16:19; Ephesians 1:20).
Sit--as a king (Psalms 29:10), though the position rather than posture is intimated (compare Acts 7:55,56).
Until I make.--The dominion of Christ over His enemies, as commissioned by God, and entrusted with all power (Matthew 28:18) for their subjugation, will assuredly be established (1 Corinthians 15:24-28). This is neither His government as God, nor that which, as the incarnate Saviour, He exercises over His people, of whom He will ever be Head.
Thine enemies thy footstool--an expression taken from the custom of Eastern conquerors (compare Joshua 10:24; Judges 1:7) to signify a complete subjection.
Now let's summarize it, paraphrase it and apply some meaning to us as 21st century beings and thinkers. God the father prophetically spoke to Jesus - The Messiah, telling him to relax as he was the Child of The Most High King. When he is obedient and sits and relaxes, God the Father, would fight and win all his battles and cause his enemies to be put to shame most definitely.
Global friend, I want to remind you too, that once we believe in God and have accepted him as Lord and Saviour of our lives, we are also His sons and daughters. That means too, that once we follow his command in Psalms 110:1, He will also fight and win ALL our battles too, and take care of our problems.
Let's agree today, that we will cast all our cares on God as The Apostle Peter recommends in 1st Peter 5:8, simply because He cares for us. God loves all his children. He will take care and come through for all of us at different times. Do not hold a grudge against anyone! Simply learn to WAIT and depend solely on God.
As for your enemies, your haters, those who are gossiping about you and trying to tear your name and reputation apart? Stop worrying! Only continue trusting, reading your Bible and praying. They will ALL soon be your footstool. I didn't say it, Psalm 110:1 does. The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
It has happened already in the Bible. Daniel's enemies? Joseph's haters? David's Naysayers? Moses' Haters? Job's Criticizers? We can go on and on and on and on, but I am sure you get the point!
You will come out VICTORIOUS! You will come out a WINNER! You will come out on TOP! Your enemies will soon be your FOOTSTOOL!
Don't Give Up! Hope is Ahead! This is YOUR year to RISE and SHINE and SOAR!
