“’Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.’ The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion, saying, ‘Rule in the midst of your enemies!’” Psalm 110:1-2.
There are many in my midst who have rejected God. They want nothing to do with the Creator.
How can I survive such a setting as a believer?
Note the message that God gives to Jesus: “Sit at my right hand until I……”
I overestimate and under-estimate enemies. Depends on the situation.
I read something and suddenly feel empowered. Other times I check the news and am overwhelmed. Same guy, two different mindsets.
God’s instruction in verse one applies to me: “Sit with Him until…”
I must continually stay close to God. I cannot be wondering off and trying to live for Him while being apart from Him. It won’t work……….and never has.
In verse two the key word is “rule.” Jesus won’t just survive or blend in with His enemies, He’s going to rule BECAUSE His Father has empowered Him. The same thing applies to me. God’s power is so amazing that what throws me off now won’t, when I’m empowered by Him.
How do I get empowered? Read Scripture. Pray. Practice His Presence.
Conclusion: Closeness to God makes all the difference. I must be empowered by Him to live in my world correctly.
