Ephesians 3:14-19 will be our main scripture focus over the next few weeks. And while I’m sure many of you are eager to get started with a new plan for faith and fitness, we must begin right where this passage begins . . . on our knees to pray!
One of my favorite books in Lioness Arising by Lisa Bevere. In this rich book, she describes the strength and beauty of a tribe of lionesses and their representation of scriptural truth we can apply to our own lives as women. We too are created with strength and beauty and function most effectively as a group. More importantly, Lisa pointed out that a lioness must crouch down before it can pounce forward.
As we physically crouch down, falling to our knees, we also spiritually bow in individual humility and surrender as well as godly confidence and strength. Because Jesus changes everything. 🙂
So before we rise and move and savor and flourish, we must fall to our knees and pray. How can you do this today?
