But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, ‘Send her away, for she cries out after us.’ But He answered and said, ‘I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.’ Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, ‘Lord, help me!’ – Mat. 15:23-25 NKJV
Rejected by the disciples, by the society of that day because she was a gentile, regarded with low esteem as a woman, receiving no answer from Jesus, she fell at His feet and worshiped Him! Not only did she worship Him, but she also cried out, “Lord, help me!” She didn’t give up. That’s never an option when we believe in the promises of God. Nothing could stop her, and nothing should stop us.
Faith in the Lord stirs up worship regardless of the circumstances. By faith, we press through rejection, offenses, and any opposition, with a heart of worship. Even when God seems to be silent. Lord, you are holy, mighty, faithful, and awesome. I love and worship you. Lord, I believe!
We war with our worship. Satan used to lead worship before his fall. He cannot dwell where we do what He no longer can do. Our adoration to the Lord lifts heaviness and burdens. Thoughts of defeat, hopelessness, and fear leaves. Worship flows on the wings of faith. Peace and joy overflows. Angels sing. We will not give up, but worship, from glory to glory!
