Inspired by the Holy Spirit

"And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!"
~ Romans 10:15 NKJV ~
Lord, I have taken my feet for granted.
Your Word says that beautiful are the feet who preach the gospel of peace, bringing and revealing the glad tidings of good, wholesome, righteous things of You!
When pain annihilates my feet, I immediately attempt to massage and console my feet. The pain usually reveals that I have not taken care of my feet as I must. I am reminded that I allow my feet to take me places with no purpose. Yet, my feet have a purpose, to take me where You want me to go...not where I only desire to go.
This leads me to ask myself, "Are my feet leading me to people where my arms can be extended to give of my time? To give an embrace? Are my feet leading my mouth to speak encouragement and truth? Are my feet leading me to give and run closer to the Glorious Face of You Father, praising Who You are? Or are my feet only leading me to take and run away, speaking things that must not proceed from my mouth?"
Lord, I know that my feet are to be used as a tool for Your glory; not because I have to please You or because I must as it is the 'right thing' to do; but knowing that my feet are to be utilized as a tool for Your glory because I desire to seek You for Who You are. I want to desire Your heart and Your glorious Face, because I can. You have made the way through Jesus Christ to do so. Lord, I am reminded that my feet desire to bring me to Your Throne of Grace as I enter with boldness, not because of what I have done...but because of what You already have done. I want to please You because I get to; not because I have to. I thank You for Your Amazing Grace that places my heart on You, versus myself. I don't want to misuse Your grace to sin; I want to utilize Your grace to rise above the sin!
Thank You Lord for my feet. Thank You Father. Thank You! You are so AWESOME, Indescribable altogether. I am awestruck by Your Glorious All Powerful Love! I get to love You because You first loved me. When my feet led me to the grave; you delivered me from my steps leading to destruction when I finally said, "Yes" to Your gift that was already there to receive before I was even born! Yes to Salvation being rescued by Jesus Christ, who brings Wholeness in my mind, spirit and body...not just my spirit but my mind and my body! I am eternally grateful by this Triumphant Victorious Reminder!
