Scripture: Psalm 110
Psalm 110:1 is the Old Testament passage that is quoted the most often in the New. It is quoted seven times. Verse 1 says, “The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.’” Verse 2 follows with, “The Lord shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies!” We hear about making our enemies our footstool seven times in the New Testament and we can look to David as the example. Verses 3-4 state, “Your people shall be volunteers In the day of Your power; In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth. The Lord has sworn And will not relent, ‘You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.’” When you and I start demonstrating the power of Scripture to subdue kingdoms, God’s people will volunteer. They will race to the forefront and join with us. Jesus is the root and fruit of David and these promises are open to all believers who develop the foundation and faith to stand in it. If we say yes and use our faith on our flesh, we can walk like David walked and pray like David prayed. Verses 5-7 state, “The Lord is at Your right hand; He shall execute kings in the day of His wrath. He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies, He shall execute the heads of many countries. He shall drink of the brook by the wayside; Therefore He shall lift up the head.” Verse 7 in one Bible version says, “He shall stand with His people.” If you and I will start doing the Word, we will experience the breath of our lips slaying the wicked and the Lord is ready to stand with His people. God wants us to be volunteers in the day of His power. Will we say, yes?
