So, here we have Joshua. All of a sudden, he runs into Jesus Christ, this soldier who says he is the commander of the army of God. Here is what Joshua did. Folks, this is how you humble yourselves, as we read what Joshua’s reaction was to Christ. Here is how he humbled himself. The first thing that Joshua did was to recognize who he was talking to. How did he recognize who he was talking to? The Bible says that Joshua fell face down.
Have you ever prayed prostrate, down on your face? I didn’t say prostate—that’s a whole other deal. I said “prostrate,” which means to lie with your face down in humility or submission before God.
You get a whole different perspective. It’s kind of a different perspective for me to look at you while I am lying on my face. Just think about what can happen when we recognize who God is. Folks, the problem is we spend way too much time on our rears, and not enough time lying on our faces before God.
Joshua recognized who he was talking to. The Bible says he immediately went face down. Joshua got low.© Copyright admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Fellowship Church Grapevine
