Joshua was in full worship mode when he asked the captain of the Lord’s host for the message from the Lord. The first part of the message: “loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy”. Joshua did. After that the plan to take Jericho was revealed to him.
Are you prepared to hear from the Lord? Meaning, is there anything between you and the Lord that is keeping you from growing in him? Doubt? Sin? Fear? These are “shoes” that we need to take off so that we can move on in the plan the Lord has for us.
