Nay!

Nay!

Joshua 5:13-15 (KJV)
[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? [14] And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant? [15] And the captain of the LORD’S host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

Heard this passage today on BridgeFM. The comment was God’s response to Joshua’s query if he was for or against as “Nay” was perfectly valid.

Who is Joshua to box our infinite God to respond yes or no? Yet too often, we expect God to respond in the answers we expect, and reject any answers.

Maybe we should train our thoughts to be as sensitive as Joshua to recognize immediately God’s answer is valid in any form or shape.
