Dear Daughter of Almighty God

Peace

Ephesians 6:15 (ESV)

15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.

SANDLES

Historical background

No soldier can go far without the proper shoes.  Even with all his other weapons, a barefoot soldier would soon become immobilized by the rough terrain taking its toll on his feet.  In bible times, the breaking of a soldier’s shoe was a metaphor for weakness or defeat signifying that a soldier’s effectiveness was largely dependent upon his shoes.

Biblical parallels

Christian’s spiritual shoes as the “preparation of the gospel of peace”, First peace a firm foundation beneath our feet.  Second standing on this peace and giving all that concerns us to God.  Third God wants us to tell the world about His peace.  Fourth we are prepared when we have our shoes on.

 

We need peace when there is so much going on in this world today sickness, poverty, killing, stealing to name just a few. God promises us peace and not the world’s kind of peace but Gods peace. Philippians 4:7(ESV) And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Receive God’s peace today.
