On your feet! Stand up! It’s time for action to be on the move. This is not the time to sit with your feet up. This is not the time to hide in the back row.
I have readied you for action. You are “booted and suited”. It’s time to move. You are ready for action.
God is silencing the whispering of the enemy, trying to tell you that you are not ready or robbing you of the confidence that God has clothed you in.
I have made you to walk in peace, not panic. You are ready to walk the paths I have laid down for you, the way I have cleared for you. I have gone ahead of you. I have laced up your feet tight. The shoes fit you well. The shoes are not too tight, and equally, they are not too big. I have equipped you with the shoes you need for this season. Do not be afraid that your feet will slip. Do not be fearful of falling. I have made you sure-footed for the paths I am leading you along.
32 It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.
33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; He causes me to stand on the heights.
34 He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
35 You make Your saving help my shield, and Your right hand sustains me; Your help has made me great.
36 You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.Psalm 118:32-36 (NIV)
13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.Ephesians 6:13-15 (NIV)
