Ephesian 6:15 -For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. (NLT)
In preparation for battle we must be able to stand, sometimes for long periods. When we are prepared nothing is missing; we have all the ingredients for the moment/job. Our bare feet are not able to walk on hard ground for long periods, so we choose to wear shoes for comfort. In this same way our Lord is asking us to be fitted with the shoes of peace which comes from the good news. The Good News is the word of God.
The peace of God is past our own understanding, but we can have His peace in the greatest of storm. We need to read and meditate on the word so that we may use it during the times of battle, It is such a great weapon against the gaints who confront us. We would be able to remind ourselves that no good thing will He withhold from us; He who began a good work will complete it; or we will live to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. I could go on and on with all the promises, blessings and freedom of the word that will allow us to stand in the moments of hardship knowing it is just a season, and it is not forever.
With the word we are more than conquerors. Therefore let us prophetically put on the the shoes of peace which comes from the good news of God. May we plant the word of God on our hearts, in our minds,
and all areas of our lives.
Getting dress builds confidence for the occassion, so let us be wearing our shoes of readiness which comes with the gospel of peace
