Under His Feet
Daily Devotional for January 24th
Far 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: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be head over all things to the church. Ephesians 1:21-22
A wonderful work had been wrought for us when Jesus died on the Cross of Calvary. His blood was shed which made the way for all to be saved by coming unto Him by faith, repenting of their sin, surrendering their lives and trusting in that shed blood to be sufficient for their sin. No other sacrifice can even remotely compare. After Jesus had completed this work, God the Father raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand. Jesus, right now, is at the right hand of the Father making intercession for the world. Hebrews 7:25.
But not only is Jesus seated at the right hand of the Father, He is also far above all principality, and powers. This is all demons; all of the cohorts of Hell that make up the entire kingdom of darkness, from Satan, all the way to the weakest of his imps. Jesus is not just above them all, but far above. He is not just above some, but all principalities!
This exalting that the Father had placed to the Son gives us great victory. Even though Jesus has always had the power over Satan, sin was an element that rightfully held men and women as the devil’s slaves. When Jesus removes our sin with His blood, Jesus removes Satan’s right to hold mankind captive. This means that He is able to conquer all of your enemies; barring none! There is now no chain, no prison, no bondage that has the authority to keep you captive. Storms cannot subdue Him either. The storm waves are under His feet!
Since all things are under His feet, this means He has the power and authority over them; ALL OF THEM! Are there things in your life you don’t have victory over? Raging storms? Jesus wants you to bring them to Him. He can and will crush them under His feet! Are there demons tormenting you? They will surrender to Jesus commands. Bring your chains to Him today. You’ll find freedom, liberty and victory when you lay them at His feet!
