Devotional: At the Feet of Jesus
Many believers desire to do the wonderful things Jesus did while He was on earth. We desire to do even greater things than He did but have we known Him enough to walk in His dimension of revelation? We desire to know Him more but we have spent little or no time sitting at His feet in order to learn from Him. We have faced so many battles and we’ve been trying to fix it on our own but if we had brought it before the feet of Jesus, all our messes would have been turned into blessings.
A recent study by the Centre for Bible Engagement polled 40,000 from the general population in the U.S.A. from the ages of 8 to 80 reveals, and found that those who study the Bible four times a week stand a chance of reducing anger issues by 32 percent; bitterness in relationships/marriage 40 percent; alcoholism 57 percent; feeling spiritually stagnant 60 percent; and viewing pornography 61 percent. Meanwhile, sharing your faith and discipling others jumped to 200 and 230 percent, respectively.
In Luke 8:27-29, scripture recounts how a demon-possessed man cried out with a loud voice and fell at His feet when he saw Jesus. That demon-possessed man was filled with sleepless nights and murder attempts but, as soon as he met Jesus, he found rest in Him. In verse 35 of the same chapter, those who knew him found him sane at the feet of Jesus. There was no hope for this poor, wretched man until he fell at the feet of Jesus. At the feet of Jesus, is a place of rest.
Luke 7:37-38 tells us of a woman who came to Jesus with a broken and contrite heart. Though she was a sinner, she received instant pardon. She stood at the feet of Jesus behind Him weeping. She began to wash His feet with her tears and wiped His feet with her hair and kissed His feet, anointing them with a precious oil.
It doesn’t matter the depth of your sins, at His feet, there is pardon and restoration. In Matthew 9:12, Jesus said, they that are whole need no physician but they that are sick. There is pardon and restoration awaiting your repentance. Jesus came for the lost and He’s ever ready to receive you. At His feet is a place of pardon and restoration. Run to Him now!
Great multitudes came to Him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others. They laid them at the feet of Jesus and He healed them all, (Matthew 15:30). There is no better place to receive your healing/miracle than at His feet. He is our great healer. By His stripes we were healed. Verse 31 tells us that the multitude glorified God.
Jesus’ healing power has not diminished over these 2000 plus years. He is still the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He can heal you today, so run to Him and sit by His feet because this is a place of healing and miracles.
In Mark 5:22-23, Jairus runs to the feet of Jesus with a prayer request. No wonder Jesus Himself says in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me all ye who labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." You can come and lay all your burdens at His feet. There is no hopeless prayer at the feet of Jesus. At the feet of Jesus is a place of prayer. Sincerely lay all your burdens, problems, and issues of life at His feet through prayer, and He will show up mightily in the midst of your storm.
Luke 10:39 says, “And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard His word." At the feet of Jesus is a place of learning. We must stay at His feet. It is when we stray on our own that we lose our compass. If we would be sincere enough to stay at His feet, we would walk in His newness of life.
Lord Jesus, help us to sit at Your feet in all situations. When the storm tides lift and the cables strain, teach us to run to Your feet because that is the place where all our needs can be met. Amen!
