On My Knees…

Welcome Friend!

Thank you for visiting today. 

It may be your first visit or a return visit – but nonetheless – I’m certain it is not a coincidence —

And I am always ever prayerful that the words here will encourage and inspire you as you continue on the path seeking JESUS – your Friend and mine.

My brother and sister – the title of today’s writing and all the words that follow are partially inspired by a wonderful song I heard this week called  “On My Knees” by Nicole Mullen.     

It is a BEAUTIFUL “testimony” via song that attests to the fact of how being – on her knees in prayer – she’s learned to survive on this earth — in times of laughter or in pain.   

Personally, getting on my knees to talk with God is the very first thing I do each day! Nothing compares to being in His presence and as I move forward in my day – I know (as Nicole sings) if there’s a need to talk with God (and there always is – if only to say “I love you Lord!) – I simply close my eyes – no matter where I am – and pray.

Take a moment and listen to this song soon – it will touch your heart.  

Friend, God’s Word speaks often of His children bowing down or being on their knees in prayer and/or worship.  It is a posture many believe (self included) we should take before our Lord JESUS – and with reverence and humility. 

That said —

Our Scripture focus begins today in the book of Philippians Chapter 2 verses 10-11:

“…every knee should bow…and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Halleluiah!

Then, the next three are from the book of Psalm —

“Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.” (Psalm 95.6)

“The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way.” (Psalm 25:9)

“The God of Israel is He who gives strength and power to His people.” (Psalm 68:35)

All confirm for me that God loves us, hears us and wants to guide and teach us.  

Let us WILLINGLY and TRUSTINGLY stand on His Word.

He will do what He says He will do.

Believe it! 

I do!

Please bow your head and pray with me —

Father, we know the Bible is Your Word – intended to guide and teach us.  Thank You for putting it in our hands.  Please put in us the desire to diligently study it with reverence and humility as we willingly seek after You in prayer – every day – on our knees.

In Jesus’ name we pray and believe.

Amen.
