Psalms

At His Right Hand

Psalm 110

The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

Jesus quoted this verse when talking to the Pharisees. He asked them who’s son the Messiah was. They answered him that the Messiah was David’s son because it was promised to David that Messiah would come from his seed. So then Jesus asked the Pharisees if the Messiah is David’s Son, why does he call him Lord here. The Pharisees couldn’t answer that question and they left. You can find this account in Matthew  22:42-46. The important thing for us here is the second part of this.  The Messiah sits at the right hand of God and He will make my enemies His footstool. There is no enemy that I have that can stand up to my God. Not sickness, not finances, not those who come against me and not weakness. Nothing can come against me that God will not defeat. And He is still on the throne, even when the enemies are coming against me. If I don’t see Him working I can rest assured that eventually He will send His strength to help me.

Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.

The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

David says the people shall be willing. Are you willing? Willing to do whatever God asks of you? Willing to say whatever God wants you to say? Willing to go wherever He wants you to go? We need to be willing on the day when He gives us the power to go. It is God who will direct our steps in beauty and holiness. He wants us to be ready, willing and able when the time comes
Melchizedek was an Old Testament priest and was also called the King of Salem. He met with Abraham and Abraham paid him tithes. There’s no record of where He came from or where He went to after that. This verse speaks of the Messiah and the fact that He comes from the line of priests that Melchizedek did. He was a priest forever and He will be a priest forever. There’s no beginning and no end of His priesthood. It is eternal.  Christ is our High Priest forever.

The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.

He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.

He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.

Aren’t you glad to know that God is at your right hand? He walks beside you every day protecting you from harm. He is defeating your enemies, many times even before they come against you. He is holding on to your arm and guiding you gently through your life. You can’t feel Him there, but He is. He will take you to the place where He wants you and He will take care of anything that comes against you. You can depend on it. He’s an awesome God who cares for us enough to defeat those enemies around us. Because He loves us.
