Secondly, shoes are the ones that have the ability to crush the things on the floor. While we are preparing to share the gospel, we must be prepared to crush the works of the enemies also on the way. When we prepare for the gospel work, the enemy also prepares for his wicked works.
The Bible declares in 1 Corinthians 15: 27, “For He has put all things under His feet.” The Lord Jesus put the devil under His feet and defeated Him on the cross of Calvary.
Our relationship with Christ is that He is in us and we are in Him. What ever Jesus did on the cross is appropriated in our lives as is. We have the Victory in Jesus.
The Lord has given us the authority to trample over serpents and scorpions and nothing shall by any means hurt us. Jesus said, “behold I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”(Luke 10:19)
If you see the enemy lurking around you, you need to use your shoes to trample the enemy under your feet. God has given us the victory. He has overcome the sin, hell and the grave. The Bible says that we are in HIM. What does that mean? When Jesus died on the cross, we died with Him. When He rose again from the dead, we rose again with Him from the dead works. God has made us more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus.
Having your shoes on means you are ready to do something right then and there when God directs you. You need to be ready to share the gospel to anyone that the Lord will bring on your way and also be ready to cast out the evil one who may be lurking around you. This is the preparation that the Lord expects out of every Christian.
May your feet be shod with the preparation of the gospel all the time in Jesus’ name.
