Expect Your Father to Bring Down Your Enemies

"But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool." (Hebrews 10: 12-13)

Jesus has absolute confidence in His Father, that He will put every enemy under His feet.

Do you have the same confidence in your loving Father?

Perhaps you do not know that God is your loving Father.

That is why we have the Holy Spirit today living in us:

"For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father." (Romans 8: 15)

and also

"And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father." (Galatians 4: 6)

Now that you know that He is your Father, do you know that He loves you as much as He loves His Son Jesus?

Jesus Himself prayed that we would understand His love for us to this degree:

"23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me." (John 17: 23)

and also

"For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." (2 Corinthians 5: 21)

In fact, when God our Father sees us, He sees us as His own Son:

"Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world." (1 John 4: 17)

So, God sees us as His own Son.

He has also seated us at His right hand, in His Son:

"Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all." (Ephesians 1: 19-23)


"4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus" (Ephesians 2: 4-6)

God is your Father, you are His child, He sees you as His only Begotten Son, and He has seated you in Heavenly places at His right hand.

Expect him to bring down your enemies, to make every enemy facing you your footstool.
