Slow Down and Bow Down | Psalm 95:6-11

Today's Passage: Psalm 95:6-11
Key Verses: Psalm 95:6-7

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.

Busy. That's a word that describes most people I know. Work is packed with meetings, travel and pressure to perform. Families are always on the move to a game, recital or competition. For some families dinnertime is often in the car—fast food in the fast lane.

The psalmist calls for us to slow down. He tells us to bow down and kneel before God. On our knees is not only a posture of reverence; it's a posture of stillness. Driving, walking and running all describe actions of motion, but kneeling shows that I have reached my destination—God's presence.

Slow down and kneel down. Take time for personal worship. Tell God how much you love him. Tell him that this day belongs to him. Tell him that above all else you desire to honor him today in your thoughts, words and actions. It is the critical ingredient in heart preparation. I know that you are busy - too busy not to kneel down and worship.

Father, my calendar is full today. Most of my day I will be running, but right now I kneel and bow before you. I acknowledge you as the Maker of heaven and earth and as my Abba, Father. I desire to live today under your guidance and care. In Jesus' name. Amen.
