God's Love

 "Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he
went into his house; and his windows being open in his
chamber toward Jerusalem,
he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed,
and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
"
Daniel 6:10

The Power of Bended Knees

Have you ever watched how a bird sleeps on its perch and
never falls off? How does it manage to do this?

The secret is the tendons of the bird's legs. They are so
constructed that when the leg is bent at the knee, the claws
contract and grip like a steel trap. The claws refuse to let
go until the knees are unbent again. The bended knees give
the bird the ability to hold on to his perch so tightly.

Is this not also the secret of the holding power of the
Christian? Daniel found this to be true. Surrounded by a
pagan environment, tempted to compromise with evil,
urged to weaken his grip on God, he refused to let go.
He held firm when others faltered because he was a man
of prayer. He knew the power of the bended knees.

From sleeping birds we can learn the secret of holding
things which are most precious to us.........honesty, purity,
thoughtfulness, honor, character. That secret is the knees
bent in prayer, seeking to get a firmer grip on those values
which make life worth living. When we hold firmly to God
in prayer, we can rest assured He will hold tightly to us.
