Psalm 95:6 (KJV)
6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

Psalm 132:7 (KJV)
7 We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.

Acts 7:32-33 (KJV)
32 Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.
33 Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.

Kneeling in prayer has always been symbolic of being humble before the Lord. Submitting yourself to the Lord with meekness as you give your petitions to the Lord. Today many will be entering the tabernacle (most commonly called in our current vernacular “church”) to go through the motions of a Sunday Service. Would it not be a great outpouring of His Spirit if everyone with one mind and one accord would go into the house of the Lord with a humble heart and bow down and begin worshiping the Lord. Many times, the saints get caught up in the traditional rut of greeting one another, catching up on the lives of their fellow saint. Then it is time to sit in the same spot you always sit and the audacity if anyone should sit in your spot. Listen to the music if anyone is playing something until the service begins. Sometimes the service opens with a prayer or a song. Then maybe sometime during the service some begin to feel the moving of the Lord. Then it is time to hear the preaching and if there is an altar call, walk to the front. Worship for a little while and then visit some more and go home. I forgot, some church folks go out to eat and then go home and nap, but nothing has changed. Does that sound like your Sunday morning routine? What would happen if a very important celebrity would walk through the church doors? Everyone would be beside their selves hoping to meet and greet this famous individual. Then while the dismissal is being said, dialing on their phones to tell everyone they know who they just shook hands with. Am I right? The greatest celebrity that ever lived is the Lord Jesus Christ and He is waiting to greet each and every one that decides to bow in His presence and worship. He is the visible of the invisible God who created the heavens and the earth. Who is so powerful that just by the spoken word the creation that is around us was formed. The Psalmist spoke of going into the tabernacle to worship at his footstool. Footstool in its unique translation means the place where the Lord stamps or walks. In the root of the word is buried the meaning to be a table bearer or servant. So, wherever you choose to kneel to worship the Lord, keep in mind you are on holy ground because the Lord is walking around. While you are worshiping, the Lord is ministering or serving your needs. What would you choose? Routine with little or no change or an outpouring where the Lord meets “all” your needs? The Lord wants to serve you with so many blessings. Worship with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength and receive the blessings of the Lord to change your life.
