Have you ever gazed upon such beautiful feet? Feet that are sore and crusty, toes curved and bruised, nails blackened and chipped, soles blistered, bloodied and aching. Bare, walking on the straight path, dusty with the sand and rock of the holy ground on which they stood. Feet in need of rest, but facing the rising Son of the new day, and still up for the starry display of grace in the midnight hours. Feet that no longer stumble in darkness but seek to be lit by the lamp of the Word. Feet that feared only the prospect of not doing what God commanded. Feet that would not be turned around but sought unseen lands. Feet that not only felt the green pastures and the cooling water of God’s salvation, but also the heat and fire of Earth’s evil, destruction, and persecution. Feet that moved with purpose, pressing for the higher calling of Christ. Feet shod with the Preparation, carrying that good news to the ends of the Earth. How beautiful are the feet of those that preach the Gospel of Peace.
Lord, I pray You prepare the feet of Your people for this race. And I pray you bless the feet of those out on the battlefield of Glory. May Your name be lifted up high and spread to the ends of the earth! May all bow before the God of all the Earth and the True Risen King!
In Jesus Name,
