God Rewards Those That Will Worship Him
Posted September 30, 2005
The Father seeketh children that will worship him. John 4:23-24 says, "But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. v.23
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." v.24
In these passages of scripture, we see a woman that was rewarded for her faith and worship.
Matthew 15:21-28 says, "Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. v.21
And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. v.22
But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. v.23
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. v.24
Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. v.25
But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. v.26
And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. v.27
Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour." v.28
The attitude of this woman's heart toward God was demonstrated when she worshipped the Lord saying, "Help me." She was in desperation for her daughter, that she said was grievously vexed with a devil, and her heart was determined to see her daughter made whole. In verse 28, Jesus said, "Woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour."
This woman's daughter was healed - made whole from that very hour.
I want to encourage all of you to let this woman's faith and worship be an example to you.
God bless you,
