Hi, Jason Pankau here with another daily devotional for you in the “Standing strong in the full armor of God” series. We went through an intro to spiritual warfare. We’ve talked about both putting on the belt of truth and the breastplate of righteousness. The next one is one of my favorites.
Ephesians 6 starting at verse 15. “and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.”
This is all about grace! Are you living in grace today? Are your feet fitted? When you woke up this morning, did you confess your sin to the Lord? Did you pray the prayer that the Lord taught us to pray? Forgive me my sins as I forgive those who sin against me. If you did, your feet are fitted with readiness to be an instrument of grace and an ambassador of reconciliation in the world. Isn’t it interesting that it’s the feet? It’s the grace of God that will move us in our lives. You don’t want to walk around this prickly planet without shoes on. It’s the grace of God, the shoes, that help us withstand the harshness and prickliness of this world. Not only to withstand it but to move as people who are meek to reach people that are desperately need forgiveness and love, and love them anyway.
So that’s my challenge to you. Get prayed up! Confess to the Lord so that He might give you that supernatural grace, that you might receive that absolution fresh every morning and walk in that grace as an instrument, someone whose feet have been fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
Let us pray. Lord Jesus, I am so grateful that you have forgiven a sinner like me and that your mercies are new every single morning. Father, I want to resubmit afresh today, reconfess my sins to you, and declare my dependence on your grace alone to take away my sin and to enable a life that is really worth living. Father, use my life. Use our lives as your instruments of peace into a dying world, into a warring world. Help us bring your grace and forgiveness, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen. God bless you as you do that today.
