The Commander


You can have the same confidence Joshua had after the defeat of Jericho. Learn how to accept God as the commanding officer of your life, and worship Him alone.

Today’s Reading: Joshua 5-6

Key Verse: Joshua 6:27

So the Lord was with Joshua, and his fame spread throughout all the country.

Joshua’s dramatic encounter with “the Angel of the Lord” (5:13-15 & 6:1-5) must’ve been a powerful confirmation to him that God’s call on his life was a divine appointment. The specific instructions for the defeat of Jericho gave Joshua great confidence in moving forward. This was no ordinary angel. This was the Lord Himself as evidenced by Joshua’s worship. The Gospels record that Jesus received worship. At the visit of the wise men (Matt. 2:1-12) and  through eternity (Rev. 5:1-14), Jesus is worshiped. None of the great prophets and apostles ever received worship. In Lystra (Acts 14:11-18), people tried to worship Paul and Barnabus who were horrified at the thought of being worshiped. Let us worship the Lord. He alone is worthy. Let us join now the hosts of Heaven in worshiping Him.


Lord Jesus, You are my commanding Officer. Give me grace and willing obedience as You did for Joshua. I worship You! You alone are worthy. Hallelujah! Glory to Your Name for ever and ever. Amen and Amen!


Throughout the years, as one who seeks to follow Jesus and to listen for His instructions, I’ve been blessed with His guidance. This daily, two-year journey through the Bible is an example of my willingness to obey what I believe He tells me to do. When God asked the people to march around the walls once a day, and then 7 times the last day, it must’ve seemed foolish and tedious to some people. It may have been a mile or more around the walls. Some thought of giving up, I’m sure. Nevertheless, the people persevered. The archeological digs around Jericho seem to indicate that the walls did not simply fall over but that they imploded into the ground. The Lord works with an infinite variety of methods. I think I’ve learned to expect the unexpected.
