My FATHER'S SHOES
Jamie loves to wear his Daddy’s safety boots. For some or other reason it makes him feel like the man of the house. He even prompts around acting like the head of the house with his tiny little legs trying not to lose his balance. So when the safety boots gets left in the middle of the room with mud footprints all over, there is a good chance, Jamie is behind these prints.
This week, you and I are going to wear our Father’s shoes. We are going to start seeing the tracks of peace it leaves, not only in your hearts but also in our relationships and experiences with others. Maybe the current status of your life can make you think, “how can changing my shoes have anything to do with changing my situation?”, but I have news for you. When those shoes are God’s shoes his footprints will start showing up everywhere you go.
STEP 1 – Turn to Ephesians 6:15 and write down the scripture word by word in your Prayer Journal.
STEP 2 – Please define the word “peace” in your own words as If you would describe it to your child. Write this in your Prayer Journal.
STEP 3 – What words come to mind when you are asked to describe the opposite of peace?
Of all the things, the enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10) in your life, and peace is almost always at the near top of the list. He intentionally stirred up division, disruption and disturbance, both within you and around you. He is the father of chaos, confusion, using every opportunity to upset your sense of well being and stability. He rejoices when you are uneasy, unbalanced, filled with anxiety, worry and turmoil. Lacking peace!!!
That is why the strong presence of peace in our personal lives and in our relationships is perhaps our most vital spiritual threat against the enemy.
The good news is we are about to put on our Father’s shoes that will leave the footprints of peace everywhere we go. You are not only here to lose the weight but, you are also here to step into shoes that you probably will never take off again .
