"The Lord says to my Lord:
'Sit at My right hand,
Until I make Your enemies a
footstool for Your feet.'"
A couple days before the entering of this New Year of 2012, the Lord spoke this Word to me. He said, "Come and sit at My right hand until I make your enemies your footstool." As I took this Word to heart and took my place and seat in the Spirit at His right hand, I immediately felt a rest and a peace and a strength. It was a place He had created especially for me(us). It was a place of positioning for this new year. He was showing me that this place is mine(ours) as it has been purchased for me(us) by His blood and very life on the cross. It's His place of favor, rest, and abiding, His place of strength, power and authority. It's not a place we have to strive or work for. It's a place we receive and enter into as we receive Christ into our hearts and believe on all that He accomplished for us through His death and resurrection. We are raised up with Him and seated with Him at the right hand of the Father, seated with Him in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
As I have received this Word by faith and have taken this place at His side, I have watched the hand of God move mighty on my behalf just in this last week and a half. I have seen enemies disarmed and their powers broken right before my eyes. I have seen answers to prayers and victories in my life, deliverances and healings in my family, friends and church. I truly see and know that God is moving mightily in this hour, that He is vindicating His Bride, that He is honoring, manifesting and performing His Word that He's been watching over. This is an hour that our faith is going to be encouraged and quickened as we see answers and miracles that we have been waiting for. This is God's hour of power, and it's coming as we take our place and position at His side, as we take our seat of rest, abiding and kingdom favor and authority. GOD is our buckler and shield. HE is our strength and high tower. HE is our defense and our vindication. HE is the One that gives us the victory and receives all the glory. It's IN HIM and through Him that we receive, and HE will make our enemies our footstool. HE will do it, not us. It's not our abilities, but His power. It's in our yielding and obedience to His Spirit that He will work through us to manifest His power. We work in tandem with His Spirit. The Spirit leads, we yield, and God manifests.
Thank You, Lord, that You have created and reserved a seat at Your right hand for us to sit in, a place to rest, abide and share Your heart. Thank You that as we take this place at Your side that You move mightily on our behalf to make our enemies our footstool. You remove obstacles and hindrances that stand in the way of Your glory being revealed through us. Thank You that we don't rely on our efforts and abilities but on Your power alone. Thank You that we are one with You, and You work through us to manifest Your kingdom and power here on earth as it is in heaven. We lean into You, Jesus. We take our place at Your side and receive Your power and Your anointing that flows through us. We obey and step out in faith to be Your hands, feet and mouthpiece. Glorify Yourself through Your Body and Bride as never before, Lord. Let Your power be seen and experienced to show that You are real and alive and living through Your people.
Amen and amen.
