Joshua 5:13 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?
After hearing all of God’s promises Joshua is still not sure who the man with the sword is. Joshua wants to know if this man is with him or against him. The man answers and tells him that he is the captain of the Lord’s host. He was an angel. He was there to fight for the cause of the Lord. Now the question turns. The question is now. Whose side are you on Joshua? God doesn’t get on our side we get on His. I think so often I get this backwards in my mind. I want to know if God is working in my life or if He is helping me. The real question is for me to understand that He is the One in charge and I am serving Him. It is not about me being in charge or it being my ministry but His. That will change so much of what happens in my life and ministry.
