Does our posture matter?

does our posture matterWe talked about this recently at the SIM(Serving in Mission) office when discussing prayer.

It’s been on my mind and now I am confronted again with this as I read the story of the man – full of leprosy – falling on his face before Jesus.

It seems that in my quest to pray – all the time – I rarely find myself prostrate before the Lord anymore.  As I try to understand this loss in my prayer life I see why.

The leper was not a friend of Jesus, but desperately needed a touch, nothing mattered but Jesus reaching out and healing him.  In the most desperate of acts, he took the most desperate posture.

Since I walk with Jesus every day, my conversation is – friendly – and if I need something, I ask Him.  However, this walking with Jesus has become much to casual.  As much as He is my friend and has allowed me into an awesome relationship with Him, He is also my God.

I feel an emptiness inside me as I write this because I miss those holy moments on my knees or on my face where His presence fills the room as I spend intimate time with Him in worship and adoration, loving the God who has become my friend.

Our posture indicates the intimacy we actually have with Jesus.

So, here I am to worship, bowing down before You, loving and adoring, laying my life before You, knowing that the form of my body is taking on the posture of my heart – may my meditation of my heart be pleasing to you Lord, today.

    I asked myself that same question a few months ago. I wrote about it in my blog. There was no answer, but my answer was in line with yours. I think we can get too personal with God and forget he is a benevolent king.
