Bowing Down Before Him

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.

Today, if only you would hear his voice

Psalm 95:6-7

Abraham Lincoln once remarked that there were days when he found himself on his knees before God, for there was no other place for him to go during the dark days of Civil War; I think there are times like that for all of us.

We don’t need to be enduring hard times to fall on our knees before Him, for there are times for us to jump for joy in His presence, and times to fall on our knees in thanksgiving before Him as well. Let’s face it, there are also times when we come before Him in reverent prayer just to keep our priorities straight and to acknowledge His great love for us; the most important thing, whether we are living in good times or bad, is for us to remember that we need to be near to God.

God is my joy and my sustenance; my happiness and my comfort.

God is my life and my strength; my creator and my redeemer.

    Amen! If we draw close to Him, He will draw close to us! This means good and the worst of times! Thank you!

    There’s an old chorus that goes like this. “Without Him, I could do nothing. Without Him I’d surely fail. Without Him I would be drifting like a ship without a sail.” That about sums up my sentiments. Looks like it does yours as well!

    Except for God, there no one we can go to to unburden ourselves.
