Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He will bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.
Beside it’s usual meaning heel also has the meaning of “the rear” and “lie and wait”. This gives the idea of attacking the rear of an army from an ambush. The rear of an army is usually the weakest part. Caring for the sick and wounded. Supply units. Etc. They are the easiest to attack. Perfect for satan.
A heel is part of a foot. Foot is symbolic for someone’s path of life. In this case following God. Striking the heel has the meaning of get someone of the path set out by God. In other words less faith or totally leaving God’s path.
Bruising the head is about breaking authority.
