Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; for He is our God and we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His care. (Psalm 95:6-7)
I grew up in a church where we kneeled several times throughout the service, and haven’t felt the need to do it in my church much since then. But one thing I have frequently done for many years is kneel down in my study at the beginning of the day and worship God.
A good Muslim puts his forehead on the ground five times a day for his god. Surely the Christian can kneel before the real God once a day. Paul told the Philippians that because “God exalted Him [Jesus] to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth” (Philippians 2:9-10). This will be completely fulfilled only at the end of time, but surely all the knees “in heaven” do it every day now. The King invites us “on earth” to join them. And it would be good practice for something we will be doing for all eternity anyway.
While we kneel, let us “worship,” recognizing “the Lord” is “our Maker,” and we owe Him absolutely everything, including the day, knees, and breath to worship Him. Let us remember “He is our God” and commit that this day, He will be the One we desire, and are controlled by, instead of any other “gods.” Everything we do today will be for Him. And as we kneel, let us remember there will be nothing this day that needs to overwhelm us because “we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His care.”
Might as well do it right now. He’s listening and will be delighted that you did.
