Joshua met The LORD face to face, stood before him, fell down and worshiped, and then received his marching orders from the Commander of The Lord’s army!
So often when we pray we jump straight to the “give me your orders” Lord. But we don’t take time to meet him face to face, stand in his presence, or worship him.
Remove your shoes people of God, for the place on which you stand is holy ground! Worship must precede direction. If you truly want to be directed by the LORD then you must first truly worship him as LORD.
