Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
Been doing any kneeling this week? Gotten yourself in a position of humility toward God? When is the last time you actually got on your knees before Almighty God when you prayed. Getting on your knees shows to God, angels and men an attitude of humility and total submission to God.
One of the most successful prayers in the Bible was the prophet Daniel. You will remember how he prayed even after they had passed a law that prayer to any god but the king would be punishable by death. Listen to what Daniel did, Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime (Daniel 6:10).
Daniel was determined that both God and man would know his total submission to God by seeing him on his knees, and God blessed him for it. He saved him out of the mouths of lions and Daniel became the chief ruler under the king.
So, Do God, angels and men know that you are serious about your prayers? How often have they seen you on your knees lately?
