Do You Have on Your Shoes?

“And having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace.”

Ephesians 6:15


Ponder This

Do you have peace right now? Or are you churning on the inside? If you don’t have peace right now, I’ll tell you why. It’s not because of circumstances. Peace in the Bible is not the subtraction of problems from life. Peace is the addition of power to meet those problems. The Bible says, “Great peace have those who love Your law, and nothing causes them to stumble” (Psalm 119:165). The only way you can live that way is to put on the shoes of peace. Jesus made peace with the blood of His cross, and if you don’t have this, you’re going to slip and fall in the battle. So many people fall, not because of a lack of integrity or a lack of purity, but because of a lack of tranquility. Something will happen, some sickness, some disappointment, some financial reverse, some wayward child, and they lose their peace. You put on the shoes of peace so you can have a firm place to stand. If you don’t, you may slip and you may fall.

  • How can you practically “put on the shoes of peace”?
  • How has God’s peace helped you stand firm in past spiritual battles?
