You wear your eagerness and passion to communicate the good news like soldier’s shoes. Announce peace; the battle has already been fought and won! (Mirror Bible)
Do you have on your “gospel shoes”?
Don’t you just love shoes? I certainly do! There are so many kinds and styles, work shoes, play shoes, casual shoes, dress shoes, etc. There are shoes for every activity, every sport and even different shoes to play the same sport. As a soldier in the army of God you have on “gospel shoes” and they make your feet beautiful.
Habakkuk 3:19 The Lord God is my strength [my source of courage, my invincible army]; He has made my feet [steady and sure] like hinds’ feet And makes me walk [forward with spiritual confidence] on my high places [of challenge and responsibility] (Amplified Bible AMP)
Romans 10:15 And how can men [be expected to] preach unless they are sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those who bring glad tidings! [How welcome is the coming of those who preach the good news of His good things!]
These shoes compel you to bring the good news. These shoes part the way for peace.
Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good tidings, who publishes peace, who brings good tidings of good, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, Your God reigns! (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition AMPC)
The shoes never wear out, and they always fit. In these shoes, the answer to every problem is always Jesus.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I thank You for my “gospel shoes”. You know I love shoes, but there is no pair of shoes I love more than these. They make my feet beautiful. They allow me to bring You into everyplace I go. I repent for the days and the times when I felt like they didn’t fit, or didn’t go with my outfit. To be honest with You, they probably didn’t go with my outfit, but I have changed clothes, not shoes. I can tell everyone You are the answer, no matter where I am or what the situation is. These shoes can be whatever color I need them to be. They can be whatever style I need them to be. They always match my outfit. I thank You. It’s good to be reminded my job is to tell the world they can have peace because Jesus is the answer…
