Your breakthrough key will change everything.
There’s nothing more joyous than seeing an impossible situation turn around that confounds all those who were mocking and disbelieving you. The bible declares every knee shall bow. Philippians 2:10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
The Lord reminded me of the brass etching that hung on my bedroom door that my nan gave me when I was a small child of 5. It hung there and was never out of my room even now I think my mum still has it.
It was a picture of a girl on her knees head bowed with hand in pray 🙏. I loved that picture, and would ask my mum to kneel with me by my bed and pray with me before I went to sleep. We were not Christian’s and I’m sure it was a stalling tool I used to get more time with my mum, yet the Lord revealed to me how He listened in to those prayers. I became undone for sure !!!! He watches over our prayers, they are powerful. The simple practice of bowing the knee, the humble approach to an almighty God. I’m more aware now, and wish I had done this in my adult life. There is power in the bending of our knees. We know it’s the rendering and bending of our heart, yet the physical position of going on our knee does something for your heart.
Paul began his very powerful prayer to the Ephesians on his knee.
Ephesians 3:14 When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father,
Pagan worshipers used to bow the knee Romans 11:4 And do you remember God's reply? He said, "No, I have 7,000 others who have never bowed down to Baal!"
Bowing the knee sends an established authority in the atmosphere of your home it demonstrates to the angelic hosts and demonic scheming that you belong to God, and worship Him only. Bowing the knee builds the fear of the Lord in your heart, reminds you that He sees all, hears all, and knows all things about you, and therefore you restrain yourself from slipping or backsliding.
Building a healthy fear of the Lord is returning to our church’s as we learn the simplicity that was practiced by the early church of bowing the knee. I’m sure that the Father who watched me bow as a little girl stored my prayers for the day they were needed.
I personally watched in my married years how He restored my mum and dad using my childhood prayer of bless my mum bless my dad. I would pray all kinds of prayers, and go for a very long time until my mum was weary of being on her knees and tell me it’s time for sleep.
Although I walked away from God for a number of years and lived my own life, the awareness of His presence, His love for me was cultivated on my knee as a girl which drew me back to Him in the end.
I’m now returning to bowing the knee as a daily practice, not just in my desperate days. I pray the Lord fill us with deeper understanding of what it means to bow the knee.
Bless and much love K
