“‘I indeed come now as captain of the host of the Lord.’ And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and bowed down, and said to him, ‘What has my lord to say to his servant?’  The captain of the Lord’s host said to Joshua, ‘Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.’ And Joshua did so.” 

Joshua 5:14-15

You have a big task. You don’t know how to proceed, nor what lies ahead of you. But you’re in charge. You pray. You look up and see a man standing in front of you with a sword drawn in his hand.  You ask, “Are you for us or against us?” The response? “I’m the CAPTAIN of the LORD’S HOST.” Your eyes are opened to the pre- incarnate Christ standing before you. You fall on your face and bow down. Friends, God is on our side when we are fighting His battles in His name. Are you fighting for your marriage? He’s on your side. Are you prayerfully fighting for your children? God’s on your side. Are you fighting for His Word and truth to go forward? The Captain of the Lord’s Host is on your side.    

LORD, I Praise You and thank You for being the CAPTAIN OF THE LORD’S HOST!
