We continue our ‘God’s Body Language’ science series with a look at the knee. What do your knees teach you about
who God is?
"I bent down to feed them..."
God in Hosea 11:4, NIV
“It is amazing to me that the knee allows the body to function as it does. In reality, the knee does not have a lot of inherent bony stability, yet the forces it absorbs to do things like pivoting during an athletic activity are huge… During standing, [the force] is one times body weight but increases to 3X body weight with walking and up to 5-6 X the body weight if we are landing or jumping… We always think of bones as supplying the most stability to a joint, they are strong and difficult to break. The knee has minimal bony stability; the stability of the knee is enhanced by the soft tissue structures (ligaments, menisci etc.) contained in and around it.”
Dr. Laurie Hiemstra, Orthopedic Surgeon
“Come, let us worship and bow down,
Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.”
Psalm 95:6, NIV
“All these things all play together and I’m not sure we truly understand how they all interact because there is
so much that goes into each movement.”
“Your thoughts—how rare, how beautiful!
God, I’ll never comprehend them!
I couldn’t even begin to count them, any more than I could count the sand of the sea”
Psalm 139:17, MSG
“He knelt down and began to pray”
