Falling On Your Face

16
When you fall on your face, make sure you land in the right place. I have fallen on my face only to land in the dirt, alone, tired, scared, beaten down, downtrodden, broken and battered by life. I have also fallen on my face and landed on holy ground. In the Bible, numerous references are made to people falling forward to lie prostrate before the Lord in worship. I wish I could say I have done this on a regular basis. I have not done this regularly, but I have found serenity, solace, peace, and an intimacy with God beyond description when I have. Sometimes I have gotten down on my face before Him intentionally. Other times, I have fallen down in sin, in defeat, in discouragement, or in any number of circumstances, situations, or attitudes, and been blessed when I reached the ground in remembering that the earth is not just a place to fall down in defeat – but is also a holy place when I humble myself before the Lord and look up from the ground to see my Lord.

Act 7:30  “And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush. 
Act 7:31  When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him, 
Act 7:32  Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold. 
Act 7:33  Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.” KJV

Psa 29:1  “A Psalm of David. Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength. 
Psa 29:2  Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.”


(The concordance states the original Hebrew word translated into “worship” in this Psalm also means “fall down flat” AND “prostrate”, among other things.)

  7. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
