the commander’s commander

Joshua 3:7-8 (JDV)

Joshua 3:7 Yahveh spoke to Joshua: “Today I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, so they will know that I will be with you just like I was with Moses.
Joshua 3:8 Command the priests carrying the ark of the covenant: When you reach the edge of the water, stand in the Jordan.”

the commander’s commander

Joshua was learning about the role of a leader who wants to follow God. The LORD told Joshua that the people would know that God was with him because God was going to verify the relationship miraculously. We should expect the same thing if we are leading people to follow God. But we cannot just say what comes into our minds. We have to first get our commands from our commander, and then pass them on.

Lord, thank you for being the commander’s commander.
