2 Kings 17:36
~But the LORD, who brought you up out of Egypt with mighty power and outstretched arm, is the one you must worship. To him you shall bow down and to him offer sacrifices.~
The heat and dust of the long Indian day left Jeshu physically drained. But he felt an even deeper weariness from the intense spiritual battle and human resistance he had just experienced. Jeshu had spent several hours sharing the gospel in the park, but not one person had responded. Now after dragging himself ho me, he just wanted to sleep.
Instead he sensed the Lord calling him to a time of worship. Beginning reluctantly, he sang a dew songs. And as he worshiped, he felt God’s Spirit refreshing him within. His mind, tired from the battles of the day, was being renewed, and the oppressive presence of the enemy fled away.
Worship in the midst of the difficult situations in our lives is an expression of our devotion to God. It can take many forms. We can sing songs of worship. We can speak out his praises or read a psalm aloud. It is difficult to discourage or defeat someone who has a worshipful heart.
Take time to worship God in your time alone with him today, singing and praising him for something he has done for you recently.
