A Collection of Footwear
How great is the Lord and how awesome and magnificent are His Ways! While preparing snacks for an outing tomorrow, I was suddenly reminded of a vision that was shown this morning.
Often and at different times over the years, various footwear has been shown in different colors and styles. Sometimes shoes are elevated which points to a period of elevation and promotion of sorts. At other times and depending on the situation, there have been work boots, army boots, hiking books, high-heeled shoes, running shoes, rubber boots, formal and informal sandals of different colors – and sometimes no footwear at all, only clean well manicured feet.
If the Shoe Fits!
The visions eventually led me to the Book of Deuteronomy which reveals that the chosen people walked in the wilderness for forty years and yet their shoes never wore out. GOD always provided for them.
And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot. (Deut. 29:5)
Were we to walk in the same shoes for forty years, well there wouldn’t be much left of the shoes…nor of the feet! 🙂 It became apparent that the Lord was showing me in His Word that whatever the situation or condition I would be confronting during this earthly life, He would ensure that my feet would be kept intact and equipped. That is to say, that He would provide and help me walk through particular circumstances – challenging or not. All I needed to do was to remain in His New Covenant Word, be led by His Holy Spirit and trust Him.
I am moved to share this message today as a testimony to remind the Body of Christ that no matter what we might have done or not done (but have earnestly repented), are confronting or will confront, our great GOD of love, mercy and comfort is always with us and will provide. True, sometimes the going gets extremely difficult – you might be given to discouragement and even be tempted to give up. And we might not always understand why certain things happen the way they do. But eventually we look back at all of it and wisely realize that they often provided us with valuable life lessons that have strengthened our faith. And that in itself is an awesome gain! But most especially that it was the Lord’s divine guidance who brought us through it all.
Onward and Upward
So dear Reader, whatever your personal situation is or how dire it might be; regardless of what happens in this uncertain world with its various legalistic and adulterated religious systems; fallen governmental, economic and social systems, rest assured that GOD’S eyes are upon us. HIS living Son is guiding our walk around all worldly and satanic minefields – if we remain with Him, He will remain with us! And rest assured that in the process we are being elevated to stand in awesome and holy places with Christ which always accompanies important work in His service:
And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! (Rom. 10:15)
The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so. (Josh 5:15)
