How Low Can You Go?


“Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”

(14) “Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the LORD I have now come.” Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord have for his servant?”

(15) The commander of the LORD’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so.”
Joshua 5:13-15

“As worship begins in holy expectancy, it ends in holy obedience. Holy obedience saves worship from becoming an opiate, an escape from the pressing needs of modern life.” - Richard Foster

Today I’m wondering if I am low enough…if my face is truly planted on the ground of obedience and love before my King. You see, I’m still wrestling with thoughts and feelings that I shared in my post “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and I think a little face planting might be in order. I want Him to have ALL of me.

I hear Jesus say…Jay, come follow me.

Do you?
