The Meaning of Bowing Before God

I will bow down toward Your holy temple and give thanks to Your Name for Your loving kindness and Your truth; for You have magnified Your word according to all Your name.
Psalm 138:2

When it comes to prayer and worship, there seems to be one common factor that unites each and every one of us. This is the act of kneeling or bowing. Making ourselves humble by kneeling or bowing down before the Lord is a way of demonstrating our humility and devotion to Him.

However, this doesn’t mean that we must take a knee each time we want to converse with Him! But it is important to remember that worship is an act that brings glory to God, and our act of kneeling or bowing is a sign of our submission to His authority.

By showing our submission we are signifying our understanding of the power and authority that we serve, this allows us to align ourselves with Him fully as our focus is only on Him during the act.

Bowing or kneeling is also a great way to show our unconditional love and surrender for when mere words are not enough! Bowing and worshipping go hand in hand because when we bow our heads in worship we are comforted and fulfilled.

A great example of this is when Job hears the horrific news of the total loss of everything he loved, instead of reacting in negative way, he “arose and tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshipped” (Job 1:20). An amazing way to show his faith and trust in the Lord!

Worship, then, is a super important way to show our humility before God. Show your humility with this awesome Every Knee Will Bow T-Shirt while stocks last.
