As I was packing up my belongings to prepare for a move from Delaware to South Carolina, I stumbled upon an old compilation CD of up-and-coming female Christian artists. Jaci Velasquez was one of the musicians whose career was enhanced by this promotional album placed at the counters of Christian Bookstores throughout the nation. One of my favorite songs of Jaci is On My Knees.
Then I fell prostrate at his feet to worship (to pay divine honors) to him, but he [restrained me] and said, Refrain! [You must not do that!] I am [only] another servant with you and your brethren who have [accepted and hold] the testimony borne by Jesus. Worship God! For the substance (essence) of the truth revealed by Jesus is the spirit of all prophecy [the vital breath, the inspiration of all inspired preaching and interpretation of the divine will and purpose, including both mine and yours], Revelation 19:10.
The lyrics of On My Knees is based upon the emotional highs and lows that people experience daily. At some point in her life, Jaci realized that best way to endure trials and unexpected situations is to find a quiet place to pray. Rather than risk falling asleep in bed, Jaci found that humbling herself by falling to her knees produced the most refreshing times of prayer. May you learn from Jaci by drawing close to God as you daily pray.
