Stephen’s Gate: Awakening Your Spirit, Reviving Your Destiny


peace-in-sand“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the grace of our Lord Jesus[a] be with you.” (Romans 16:20, NLT)

“For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.” (Ephesians 6:15, NLT)

I was reminded of the words to an old song from when I was a child. “Every stronghold of bondage has to get beneath our feet, every prisoner held captive be set free.” When the Apostle Paul wrote about our spiritual armor in Ephesians he related our spiritual armor to the armor of a Roman soldier. A Roman soldiers shoes could have spikes up to 3 inches long so that it would hold his footing and it would be difficult to be knocked over. When you walk in peace, it anchors your feet so that you can’t be moved! Peace crushes satan under your feet and not with an ordinary pair of shoes but with shoes designed to completely crush the enemy! Put on your shoes of peace and watch as every hindrance in your life is crushed under your feet!
