FINDING YOUR PEACE

I had come to a crossroads in my ministry. Even before the actual cross road came, I had been praying about it for many months. I knew this was a time for doors to open. However when a door was actually presented to me, this door could be interpreted both ways. The enemy wants us to go through doors that will veer us off course, so we need to pray diligently to know which doors to close. When we are at a cross road, this is important for our destiny. I waited upon Him, but even with input, I still could not decide whether this opportunity was the door of the Lord. After a few days of thinking through the details, I had totally, 100%, lost my peace.

VISION: I was opening up these little wooden mail boxes. They were stacked one on top of the other, each with its own door. Inside each was a different pair of shoes for different people. The boxes had a label called PEACE.

HEARD: Until we can walk in peace. Thatís My point. Rest.

Eph 6:15 KJV

And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.

This was the Lordís answer to me, that unless I could walk through a door of opportunity in His peace, I was not prepared and needed to rest and wait upon Him instead. He told me that the first door would come again later and He would multiply its influence for my waiting. As it turned out a second door opened that was similar to the first opportunity. I had wonderful peace in walking through and the Lord strongly confirmed my decision. However He told me not to compromise my anointing or focus in which He had called me. I was to stay within the boundaries He had already made known to me. When we walk into new places there is a tendency to get carried away in the flow. His peace will be our safeguard and barometer.

UPDATE CONFIRMATION: I listened to a tape from Rick Joyner and he mentioned that the scripture didnít say the God of warfare or whatever will crush satan under our feet, rather it says the God of peace does this. We need to recognize that walking in peace is actually a weapon.

Rom 16:19-20 NKJV

I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.

NOTE: I went to bed to rest in His Presence. I had an ache in my heart from empty nest. Our son had just moved away to go to college.

HEARD: Divine appointment. Peace.

DREAM: I was desiring to float in a little pool so that I could rest and relax. I noticed that my shoes were in the pool and they were floating just fine. Shoes represent my peace.

HEARD: It felt so good to rest with Papa. He misses me like I miss my son.

HEARD: Make it plain to her. Intimacy.

============

HEARD: Shoed with peace.

VISION: I saw 2 glue bottles.

HEARD: Bonded.

WORD TO PONDER: WALK IN PEACE

I want to establish your walk with peace. Without My peace, it leaves the door open to enemy onslaught. Listen to this practical barometer gage I have placed in your heart. I have given you this gift so that you will know the way to go even when the way seems obscure and not clear. If you have lost your peace, pull back, close the door and return to rest in Me.

I so long for our times of intimate fellowship, where you pour out your heart to Me and then listen to Mine for you. As you learn to lay aside all unrest of heart and soul, it closes the door to unrest and opens the doors for our special times of communion. It is in this place of bonding that you become established in My peace.

Even as I glue the soles of your shoes, so I also bond your walk in Me with My peace. My peace gives you a firm foundation that not only takes the shock out of the bumps in life, but also makes you stable. So, trust Me to give you the peace you need to walk without fear. Trust Me that My Word over your life is a good gift and good news.

"For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that you will be fully prepared." (Eph 6:15-16 NLT)

"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!" (Isa 52:7-8 NLT)
