I sat staring at my husband at the kitchen table. My heart was laid bare and the tears streamed down my face.
I was weary and tired.
Another wall. Another barrier.
We know we’re walking in the Lord’s will. We’ve not taken one step without consulting our Heavenly Father, but here we sit again battle worn and broken.
Just when I think I can finally take my nose off the floor, I’m forced right back down again.
That’s when I heard a gentle, reprove:
Why do you keep rising from your knees in the first place?
Isn’t it so typical?
When things are hard, the kids are sick, we lose a job, or a family member dies, we fall on our faces before the Lord and plead with Him to intercede and go to work both in us and in our circumstances. We bury ourselves in His Word and live and breathe worship from our souls as we seek out His will, direction, and call.
But the minute things let up, our children heal, we find a job, and time begins to heal all wounds, we rise from our knees and without even realizing it we move on. We move on from the Lord and our complete utter reliance upon Him.
I’ve got it from here, Lord. Thanks for your help.
Why do you keep rising from your knees?
When things are good and when things are bad, we need Jesus. We need Jesus all the time, every day, for every second. There is not a moment we do not need His presence to fill us.
So today, are you on your knees? Why are you still standing?
