Saturday, October 17: The LORD says to my lord

Read Psalm 110

Read Psalm 110

The Lord says to my lord:

"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!"

Your troops will be willing

on your day of battle.

Arrayed in holy splendor,

your young men will come to you

like dew from the morning's womb.

The Lord has sworn

and will not change his mind:

"You are a priest forever,

in the order of Melchizedek."

The Lord is at your right hand;

he will crush kings on the day of his wrath.

He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead

and crushing the rulers of the whole earth.

He will drink from a brook along the way,

and so he will lift his head high.


The first verse of this psalm is quoted in reference to Jesus in three of the four Gospels and the book of Acts. In what ways does the entire psalm connect to what you know of Christ? Who do you think are the "enemies" the psalm mentions?


Ask Jesus to continue to reveal all of himself to you, so that you can know him more and more fully. Pray for the ability to live into both the comfort and the challenge that are part of knowing the Almighty God.
