Abraham Lincoln one said that there are times when he found himself falling to his knees before God, for there was no other place for him to go during the darkest days of Civil War. I think there are times like that for all of us.
We don’t even need to be enduring bad times to respond in this way, in fact there are times to jump for joy to the Lord, and there are times to fall on our knees in thanksgiving as well.
The most important thing, whether we are living in good times or bad, is to remember that we need to be near to God…
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.
God is my joy and my sustenance; my happiness and my comfort.
God is my life and my strength; my creator and my redeemed.
