Power in Peace

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- March 13, 2013

And with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. Ephesians 6:15

The good news of the gospel is bad news for the devil and his demons. Because Jesus followers have peace with God they are able to stand in the power of God. His peace reigns over a surrendered life which gives His children confidence to conquer evil foes. This quiet conviction is rooted in the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. The One who overcame death is the One who overcomes Satan. The Prince of Peace gives peace and power for spiritual battle.

Belief in the gospel keeps your feet of faith dry and warm in spiritual shoes fitted for you by Jesus. The enemy tries to create blisters of doubt on your heels, but when he irritates you, remind him that he has been crushed by Christ. Since Jesus gives you peace with God, you can be at peace with yourself, even with your enemies. Indeed, an adversary who sees you ready for spiritual battle looks for other unprepared victims. Faith footwear causes culprits to flee in fear.

When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them. Proverbs 16:7

Moreover, make sure to help other friends and family find peace with God, so they are equipped to expose and defeat the enemies schemes. A vague belief in God is insufficient to fight a savvy spiritual foe. It is the power of the gospel that gets the attention of the adversary. When you lead another to trust in Jesus alone for the forgiveness of their sins: peace replaces pride, faith unseats fear and gratitude graduates guilt. The gospel gives us inner stability to overcome external chaos.

Yes, your feet of faith will be soiled by sin requiring washing by Christ’s cleansing grace. So, stay focused on spiritual foot care and footwear, because it is foundational in resisting unrighteousness. Invite the Holy Spirit to fit your feet in peace with His caressing comfort. You are ready to stand firm against an onslaught of lies and deception when the gospel is your reminder of why you lovingly follow Jesus. Confront bad news with the good news of God!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I rest in Your inner peace, so I can calmly confront outer chaos.
