21 Days of Listening: Day 4 - Footsteps

This Week's Reading: Matthew Ch 5

During my quiet time this morning the Holy Spirit showed me a lot about feet.

Sounds kinda weird but it'll make sense when you get to the end.

First He reminded me of the story of Moses and the burning bush. What he highlighted to me was that God told Moses to take off his sandals because he was standing on holy ground.

Then He said the following things to me (in bold below) while at the same time showing me some of the scriptures from the Bible in my memory. After I finished my quiet time I was surprised to find that every single thing was supported by Scripture, even the parts that I could not at first recall.

In short everywhere we step is Holy Ground because the Holy Spirit is within those who believe. When we walk in obedience we literally gain ground for God.

So walk boldly out into the world knowing that you will be victorious in your well doing.

Here is my journey.

Moses at the burning bush... Holy ground

And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed. And Moses said, "I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned." When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, "Moses, Moses!" And he said, "Here I am." Then he said, "Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground." And he said, "I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God. (Exodus 3:2-6 ESV)

The disciples sent out... Where they were received they blessed

And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, 'Peace be to this house!' And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you. And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house. Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you. Heal the sick in it and say to them, 'The kingdom of God has come near to you.' But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say, 'Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.' I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town. (Luke 10:2-12 ESV)

Feet covered with the gospel of peace... We bring peace everywhere we go.

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. (Ephesians 6:13-15 ESV)

Everywhere you step the land is yours

For if you will be careful to do all this commandment that I command you to do, loving the Lord your God, walking in all his ways, and holding fast to him, then the Lord will drive out all these nations before you, and you will dispossess nations greater and mightier than yourselves. Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours. Your territory shall be from the wilderness to the Lebanon and from the River, the river Euphrates, to the western sea. No one shall be able to stand against you. The Lord your God will lay the fear of you and the dread of you on all the land that you shall tread, as he promised you. (Deuteronomy 11:22-25 ESV)

"Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land that I am giving to them, to the people of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses. (Joshua 1:2, 3 ESV)

We claim victory over all the land. Since God abides in us through the Holy Spirit then everywhere we go is holy land.

We must walk in authority when we walk in the fullness of the spirit. We are sons of God... The king of kings, the lord of lords. We are spiritual royalty

Every step must be taken in obedience to His will. We must walk in the spirit through obedience. Faith is radical obedience.
