Thank you Ajila for taking a moment to let me know there was a problem with the Dark Blue Rainbow Nylon Bow download, and all your faithful comments throughout this entire collection! You have been a big encouragement to me! My apologies to everyone who was inconvenienced! I'm putting a new link on that post and you can here to download it too.

"Because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before the LORD when you heard what I spoke against this place and against its inhabitants that they should become a desolation and a curse, and you have torn your clothes and wept before Me, I truly have heard you," declares the LORD. 2 Kings 22:18-20

In those days, true repentance and seeking God included outwards signs. One of the things they did was to rend or tear their clothing. They might also put dirt on their heads or on their faces in mourning over their sins. They would bow themselves to the earth, even lay face down on it to display their sincere contrition, acknowledging their position before the Almighty God of the Universe and worshiping Him. They would weep and fast (not eat or drink) to show the depth of their need for God to hear and answer there pleas.

We do not live under the old covenant today, but under the new covenant Christ purchased with His own blood for our redemption. But repentance and seeking God are still absolute daily essentials. He told us not to do "religious" behaviors for the purpose of being seen by men, but we would do well to meditate on the examples of old and reflect on the level of devotion and humility they displayed.

It is good for our souls when we humble ourselves before our God. It is good for us to bow, kneel, even prostrate ourselves before our God in worship, not only because He is worthy and deserves it, but it changes us spiritually if we do it from our hearts.

Let's examine ourselves when we repent or seek our Father. How deep is our love for Him? How deep is our need for Him? How sincere are we? How all encompassing is our devotion to Him? The fact is that a deep, mature, intimate walk with our Savior will lead us most naturally to our knees before our God, and it is the most wonderful place on earth!

There is a song that expresses this rapture well -
No Higher Calling
Down at Your feet oh Lord, is the most high place
In Your presence Lord, I seek Your face, I seek Your face.
There is no higher calling, no greater honor
Than to bow and kneel before Your throne.
I'm amazed at Your mercy, embraced by Your glory
Oh Lord, I live to worship You!
