The act of bowing is a sign of respect. For me, as a Christian, I bow when I am in deep prayer and worship to God.
Why do I bow? It tells my circumstances, my mind and body that there is One who is Greater than I. Bowing tells my situations that the God of the Universe is the head of my life. Bowing also tells my heart not to worry or fear, because I have just placed it ALL on the altar of God.
Amplified Bible (AMP)
Praise to the Lord, and Warning against Unbelief.
O come, let us sing joyfully to the Lord;
Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence with a song of thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with songs.
For the Lord is a great God
And a great King above all gods,
In whose hand are the depths of the earth;
The peaks of the mountains are His also.
The sea is His, for He made it [by His command];
And His hands formed the dry land.
O come, let us worship and bow down,
Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker [in reverent praise and prayer].
When is the last time you bowed in submission to God. What is keeping you from giving all your cares to the One who cares the most for you?
