Scripture for Today: Isaiah 45:22-23 “Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth. For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself, the word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness and will not turn back, that to Me every knee will bow and every tongue will swear allegiance.”
I tweaked my knee the other day going up a long flight of outdoor stairs. The depth of the steps changed mid-way up and I was not paying attention. All day long my knee protested every time I tried to bend it. Now I have a new understanding for those with knee problems!
I do hope my knees stay in good shape! I love kneeling down on the floor to play with my grandson. But my knees play a more important role, that of kneeling in awe and worship before my King.
Our verse for today tells us that every knee will bow in reverence to God. Every tongue will one day acknowledge His rule. Kneeling is a position of helplessness and humility. When one bows the knee it shows respect and honor. It is an acknowledgement of God’s absolute right to judge. He is both righteous Judge and Savior. He offers His salvation to all who turn to Him in faith.
I bend my knee to Jesus here on this earth as He is my Savior and Lord. On that future day, every knee will bow to Him as Judge. God will not be mocked and His righteousness will prevail. It is a sobering thought that all knees will eventually bow, but for many it will be too late and out of obligation.
“Come, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker,” with grateful hearts for His love and salvation!
