How to have beautiful feet

We have beautiful feet when we go where we have been sent to go.

Feet that bring good news

(Isa 52:7 NIV)  How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

The apostle Paul relates this Old Testament verse directly to evangelism of the lost.

(Rom 10:13-15 NIV)  for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” {14} How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? {15} And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

(Mark 16:15 NIV)  He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.

We need to proclaim the message of salvation to others without fear.

(Isa 40:9 NIV)  You who bring good tidings to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good tidings to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!”

Feet that bring consolation

(Isa 61:1-2 NIV)  The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,

When our friends encounter difficulties, we are tempted to rebuke them for the wrong they have done that has resulted in their predicament. However, we can choose to comfort rather than rebuke. There is nothing wrong with rebuke, but we must not forget to comfort. Words of rebuke bring no relief to a difficult situation.

Job told his friends that they only knew how to rebuke and not to comfort.

(Job 16:1-5 NIV)  Then Job replied: {2} “I have heard many things like these; miserable comforters are you all! {3} Will your long-winded speeches never end? What ails you that you keep on arguing? {4} I also could speak like you, if you were in my place; I could make fine speeches against you and shake my head at you. {5} But my mouth would encourage you; comfort from my lips would bring you relief.

Is there someone that God brings to your mind today that you can call to comfort?

Feet that claims the land for God

Wherever the soles of your feet step you will possess the land (Deuteronomy 11: 24).

Christians today perform this symbolic act to claim the land for Jesus. This act is now popular called Prayer Walk. If you want to reach your neighborhood for Christ, why not try it. Walk the area and declare that you are claiming it for God.

Feet that scale the heights

(2 Sam 22:34 NIV)  He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights.

(Hab 3:19 NIV)  The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights.

When we talk about having the feet of a deer, we are talking about feet that can leap to high places. That means God will enable us to accomplish great things for Him.

In order to have feet of deer that can scale the high places, the secret is to depend on the Lord as your strength. Do not rely on your own strength.
