Hello! I continue to study The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer.
It has been so encouraging to hear from so many other women who have done, or are doing this study:) Thank you for taking the time to comment! We need to stick together and encourage one another daily! (Not compare with one another daily!!)
This week it’s all about Peace.
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. -Ephesians 6:13-15
This is a fruit that is at the top of the enemy’s list to steal.
When it’s stolen we are left with…
Division, Distruption, Disturbance, Discord…these create chaos, confusion, and conflict…
leaving us unbalanced and filled with anxiety, worry, and turmoil.
-Self focused and full of fear.
To fight his tricks, we must put on the readiness given by the shoes of the Gospel of Peace.
I love the visual Priscilla gives when she describes the battle shoes the Roman soldiers put on. I didn’t realize they had “spikes” on their soles…giving them better stability… sure footed and able to stand their ground when faced with adversity. They surely learned from stumbling.
I also love the statement she made below:
“When we are wearing our Father’s shoes our footprints can start looking a whole lot like His.” Priscilla Shirer.
Let’s be our Father’s children…with a desire to be more like Him, let’s get up and eagerly put on His shoes…Then we will be stable, sure footed and ready to stand against attack.
