At His Feet

With this post, I’m taking part in In Other Words of the site Writing Canvas, which is hosted today by Debbie on her blog Heart Choices. Here is the quote used for this post...

“I must make a conscious, deliberate,
daily choice to sit at His feet,
to listen to His Word, to receive His love,
to let Him change me,
and to pour out my heart’s devotion to Him.
When I get into His presence,
the whole world looks different."
A Place of Quiet Rest by Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Oh, to be in the audience of the King of heaven and earth! To be in His presence to worship Him!

Do you cringe or smile when you think of sitting at the feet of the Creator of the universe?

Where do you go when your heart is aching, when the world comes crashing down on your shoulders, when storms hit and there isn’t much you can do? Do you immediately seek the advice of a friend, or do you seek the Best Friend of all?

If you seek the feet of Jesus, what will you find?

*at His feet... are received, never rejected

*at His feet... are renewed

*at His feet... are respected

*at His feet... are reassured

*at His feet... are rejoiced over

*at His feet... realize His forgiveness

*at His feet... are rewarded with His presence

*at His feet... reap more than you can imagine

*at His feet... receive comfort in your pain and sorrow, peace in your unrest, provisions for your lack, and all the other answers to your prayers.

Are we willing to lay it all down at His feet? Will we be as the rich young ruler or as Abraham? Will we leave all our burdens with Him or pick them back up again?

When we sit at the feet of Jesus, do we...

*...praise Him for Who He is?
*...sit silently at His feet, just to be near Him?
*...tell Him of our unreserved confidence in Him that He will always fulfill His promises?
*...tell Him of our tender love for Him or continually question Him as to why things are happening?
*...follow after Him seeking something from Him as the multitudes did, or do we lean upon His breast as John the beloved did, just to be near Him?
*...sit at His feet to serve Him in worship by pouring out our thanks and our tears of joy as precious, fragrant oil upon His feet as the woman who came while Jesus reclined at the table?

Have we limped in our obedience to God? Staggered in our love? Halted in our service? Ceased our worship of Him in order to prostrate ourselves at the feet of something else?

Lots of questions to ponder, aren’t there?

The Still Small Voice has no destination if there is no listening ear!
It only costs us our time to listen but it costs us our quality of life not to listen!

Those drawing near to the Redeemer’s feet will find His grace, acceptance, and sufficiency for their needs. Never turning us away, He will always accept us, just as we are.
“You will show me the way of life,
granting me the joy of Your presence
and the pleasures of living with You forever.”
(Ps. 16:11 NLT)

~~Lord, may I sit adoringly at Your precious feet just to be near You, to seek Your Presence rather than Your hand.~~

  1. Having been in His presence in a vision, I can tell you there is not a better place to be. You are so right. There is no condemnation, only unconditional love. I wanted to stay in His embrace forever. Yes, I would throw myself at His feet, and do, for any reason. Sometimes just to be near Him. Great post, Lynn. Great questions as well.

    Boy, are you quick! LOL You are such a sweet friend to comment. I can only imagine your vision. How awesome! I don't doubt you wanted to stay in His embrace forever. Thanks so much, sweetie! Bless you!

  3. This is thought provoking, Lynn. Sometimes I sit at His feet; sometimes I lie prostrate; sometimes I sit next to Him; sometimes we dance; sometimes--I'm sorry to say--I stand in the corner by myself. I need to remember to set my personal pillow on the floor in adoration more often.

  4. lynnmosher Says:

    What great thoughts, Carol! And I totally understand. Thank you so much! Blessings to you!

  5. Fliterary Says:

    Amen! Such a beautiful post, Lynn. Oh how I adore sitting at God's feet, immersed in His love and enveloped by His tender care. Oh what a blessing that we can come to the King of Kings!

    Hugs, love, and bunches of blessings!

  6. I love the list of what we receive at His feet!

  7. Oh Lynn, thank you for joining in this week. I'm so glad you wrote on this one. Sitting at His feet is the only place I want to be each morning. I don't think I'd be able to get through all I've been through in the last few years without Him.

    Thank you for reminding me of how welcome we are at His feet too.

    Much love to you,

    PS. My link is up on Heart Choices.

    The picture that you posted with words of encouragement is beautiful. To be at the feet of Jesus, King of the Universe . . .

    Everyday He waits for us.
    Thank-you for stopping by my blog.

  20. Beautiful Lynn - I'll just sit at His feet and stare at his wounds, knowing they were for me. Like the little lamb gazing up into its shepherd's eyes, I want to sit at His feet and behold His loving gaze.
    How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news - even our Lord Jesus!

    Great encouragement in your post Lynn. Such unconditional love for us.
