The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand,

     till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”

                           (Psalm 110:1)


Ironically, the bloodthirsty Emperor Diocletian had a son who inherited his name but also had a vision of the cross and was subsequently converted and baptized. The Roman Empire that was trying to kill the people instead became a Pax Romana! That is, they became the peace of Rome and gave all kinds of access to Christian missionaries, so the spread of Christianity kept going on. Diocletian had no idea what God’s purpose was for his son, Constantine. Likewise, God just might use your enemies to become your footstool!
