Beautiful & Battle Ready

Isaiah 52:7 (NKJV) tells us, "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news. Who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

Ephesians 6:15 (NLT) says, “For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.” The gospel of peace is the message that Jesus gave to those who trust in Him.

I find it interesting that both of these bible verses talk about feet and also mention - good news... and peace. Have you ever thought when you planted your feet on the ground first thing in the morning that they have a mission from on high? It's true! When we've been introduced to the Good News of Jesus Christ we have a mission to share it. I've never thought my feet were beautiful. But God says that when we share the Gospel as we go through our day...our feet are beautiful!

And there's something we must do for our feet every day. There's a piece of God's armor in Ephesians 6 that is expressly meant to prepare our feet, and protect them, in our daily journey. Putting the gospel of peace on our feet looks like planting our feet firmly when the devil tries to distract us or tries to make us unsure of the promises that God told us we could trust and stand on.

Our feet can be beautiful AND ready for battle when we put on the gospel of peace, share the good news and trust God is with us every day!
