The enemy tries to interrupt our worship any way he can. On Sunday mornings, families can count on fighting kids, a car that won’t start, or a host of other things that make them want to stay home from church.
Other times, the devil distracts us from praising God, simply by drawing our attention away. He even clouds the beauty of God’s creation so that we are too busy to notice an amazing sunset or gently falling rain.
There is a sweet Bible verse tucked in the middle of Hebrews chapter 6 that I absolutely love. It says…
“Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God.” (Hebrew 6:7 NIV)
That verse is one of my favorites because of the word-picture it gives. I picture “us” being the land that drinks in the rain—the Living Water. And by doing so, we become fruitful and useful to those around us, filled with the blessings of God.
Doesn’t that make you want to worship?
Even though the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy, he doesn’t stand a chance when we choose to worship anyway. He can’t steal what is firmly locked in our hearts. He can’t kill the Holy Spirit—alive in us, and he cannot destroy what Jesus has already done for us on the cross.Satan cannot steal the worship that is firmly locked in our hearts. Click To Tweet
So, if you’ve been struggling to worship lately, don’t let it keep you down. Simply recognize who the interruption is coming from and say, “Oh no you don’t.”
Then, turn on your favorite worship song, lift your hands to heaven, and offer whatever praise you have to give to the One who is worthy.
Currently, my favorite worship song is Take Courage, by Kristine DiMarco.
