Daily manna from the Torah by Dr Ketriel Blad

VaYelech 52-5

And (he) walked

Deuteronomy 31:14-19 

The LORD said to Moses, "Now the day of your death is near. Call Joshua and present yourselves at the Tent of Meeting, where I will commission him." So Moses and Joshua came and presented themselves at the Tent of Meeting.

Deut. 31:14 NIV

Are you ready when the boss calls you?

When the Eternal issues an order to present oneself we have to leave anything we are doing and respond to the call. Nowhere in the Torah is it mentioned that Moshe was busy dealing with something else when the Eternal called him and thus he made Him wait. In the very moment he received the calling he responded, leaving everything aside.

The same thing happened with Yehoshua. The Torah doesn't mention what Yehoshua was doing when Moshe called him to come before the Eternal. Nor does it say that he couldn't come or that he wasn't ready and came later. In the moment of the order there is an immediate response. That's the way the Eternal's faithful servants are; they don't delay their obedience.

When the Eternal orders you to do something, don't delay.
