A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. (Ephesians 6:10-18 NLT)
Hello, family. The shoes of peace! Think on that for a second, when we have peace about something there is no fear! We will walk forward no matter what challenges or danger lay ahead. We would not dare go hiking up a mountain barefoot! We would not get very far, eventually we would turn back. Paul definitely wore shoes of peace (military boot shoes of peace). Death threats, prison, nothing stopped him from preaching the good news of Christ. When we stand in the peace that we get when we turn our lives over to Christ, we are unstoppable. When God sends us on a mission we have nothing to fear! Our fellow believers who have been killed by ISIS stood defiantly against their captors. Because they knew that Christ is so much greater than their present situation. We win! Through Christ, we have the final and ultimate victory! Put on your Military boots of peace and carry out the orders that God gives you!
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” (Psalm 23:4 KJV)
Much Love & God Bless
