You have great faith

November 21, 2016

A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.”  Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.”  He answered, 

 

“I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”

 

 The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said.  He replied, 

 

“It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

 

 “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”  Then Jesus said to her, 

 

“Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.”

 

And her daughter was healed at that moment.

 

Matthew 15:22-28

 

 

It's one thing to say you have faith and it is another to prove it.  Often, God calls us to times of difficult faith and perseverance. Even when it seems like the Lord himself is trying to shut the door on our face, sometimes we are called to take a stand for what we want.  Therefore, brothers and sisters, let's go forth asking, seeking, knocking, persevering in faith now and always, because Jesus didn't give up on us when we told him "No" - let's be thankful to God!
