Good morning Lovelies. Satan has been trying to make me think that my post is a waste of time. Because no one has responded or commented on my post that I’ve been doing, that Olé’ buzzard wants me to think that it’s a waste of time. But, that’s just a trick of the enemy-him. I shall continue to write and post because God wants me to. I know that just because there aren’t any responses on the post, they are being read because it’s what He has me doing. Don’t be deceived by the trick of the enemy. The enemy fights hardest when he knows you are making a difference. Father, help me to accept and acknowledge that Satan is my true enemy and not those around me that he uses. When I am wronged unjustly, help me to surrender my right to hold another person responsible for the wrong they have caused me. Lord, may I remember the truth of Your Word because it tells me that You will defend me. Even though I am tempted to repay evil for evil, please help me to choose to fight my battles on my knees, believing that my struggle is not with another human being but with the devil and my own flesh. Grow me in Christ-like character and help me become a woman who is mature, wise, and has a sound mind. In the mighty Matchless Name of Jesus. Amen!
We all have enemies somewhere. No matter how nice or kind you are, no matter how saved and sanctified you are, there is always someone that doesn’t want to see you prosper. An enemy is merely a person that is assigned to block you and stop your forward progress. But, did you know that your enemies are actually good for you? I know that may sound crazy, but to understand it, you must first understand the reasoning behind a footstool.
In the Bible, the word “footstool” is referring to a place to rest your feet or to put your feet up, as we would say. Many of us were taught that this was a step or a ladder-like object so we could stand on it. Some called it a stepladder as well. And if we truly kept it real we all have people that we have had the feeling of wanting to step on or stomp on because of the way we were treated. But, there is another way to view this scripture as well. It’s to put your feet up and keep your blood circulating properly to prevent swelling and clots. God said that He would humble your enemies and then make them a footstool under your feet. That means He is gonna use the way they treat you and act towards you as a method of increasing His blood flow in your body! God is working something through the hurt, pain, misery, and turmoil caused by your enemies.
Your enemies are making you better and causing the blood of Jesus to circulate through your whole body. Many times we get strong in certain areas but are weak in other areas of our lives. We master certain things and fail at other things. But our enemies come to take us through things so we grow stronger and wiser in areas where we may have been weak. God is allowing our enemies to teach us and strengthen us. And once we endure the afflictions of those that mistreat us, we can sit back and put our feet up! They become a resting place for our feet to increase the spiritual blood flow in our entire body. That way the blood of Jesus touches every part of us. And we gain balance and wisdom in all areas and not just some.
Aren’t you tired of being strong in one area, and crying all the time because of weak areas in your life? Aren’t you tired of having the blood of Jesus applied to certain areas of your body but other areas in your body are clotted ad deadened because of the lack of blood flow? Because you know when the blood flow is cut off whatever part of your body that it stopped flowing through will die also. Allow God to make you enemies your remedy! That way God will cause anyone that is against you to be a footstool for you to put your feet up and allow the blood of Jesus to flow evenly throughout your life. Where’s your footstool? And are you using it?
“The Lord said to my lord, ‘Sit in honor at my right hand until I humble your enemies, making them a footstool under your feet.” Psalm 110:1
Live life, give people hope and share your heart, wisdom, and resources. Never place a period where God says there should be a comma. Add a teaspoon of compassion for those in need and pray that others follow your lead. As always peace and blessings, be safe. Take advantage of your opportunities but never allow your opportunities to take advantage of you. Remember God loves you and so do I. ©krw 1.8.19
