*FEET PREPARED WITH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE*
FEET PREPARED WITH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE
And your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace~Ephesians 6:15~
Marching was an essential part of a soldier's life, and no soldier could march far without sturdy shoe. Even before the Romans era, the breaking of a soldier's shoe was a metaphor weakness or defeat.~Isaiah 5:27 The Roman soldier's shoes were fashioned from thick leather and studded through the soles with hobnails.
The studded soles enabled the soldier to stand firm. They kept the soldier's feet from slipping in battle. Without his shoes, a Roman soldier could not maintain his position against his enemy's.
The Greek word rendered "preparation" or "readiness" in~Ephesians 6:15~can also be translated "prepared foundation"-in other words, a firm basis for a soldier's feet.
The Gospel of Peace is the good news that we can have peace with God. Before we turned to Jesus/Yeshua we
wanted to live for ourselves. We did not care about God plans. We were in conflict. But God loves us and made a way of being reconciled with him nd living in peace.
The Lord wants believers to live in peace and unity with one another. ~Thessalonians 5:13; John 13:35~This peace is the confidence that God has everything under control.
In Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belong to all the others.~Romans 12:5~
*"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present you requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus"~Philippians 4:6-7~
**Father, in the Name of Jesus/Yeshua, I confess that Your Word will come forth boldly and accurately during our walk with You. I also pray that the people who hear Your Word will not be able to resist the wisdom, inspiration, and calling of Your Spirit. As Your Word comes forth, it caries the anointing of the Holy Spirit that will cause people to open their spiritual eyes and ears and turn from darkness to the light. Give us words that will break the power of Satan on the unsaved [lost]. I pray as those who speak Your Word will be filled with Your anointing and full of power. Making it active, operative, energizing, and effective, being sharper than any two-edged sword. I believe that every need of every person will be met spiritually, physically, mentally, and financially. Thank You Father, and praise You that these petitions will come to pass , in Jesus/Yeshua Holy Name I pray.**~~
