Last Sunday in my sermon I mentioned some reasons why I at least begin my devotional time on my knees. My knees do not allow me to spend too much time in this position, but I do start that way.
Kneeling reminds me that God is on the throne, not me. It tells me that God is in control, not me. It sends me back to square one, the place of dependency on God. It is a place of surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
