Healing, The Children’s Bread
2 months ago Evangelical Ministry 0
“From there He arose and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And He entered a house and wanted no one to know it, but He could not be hidden.
For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet. The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter.
But Jesus said to her, “Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.” And she answered and said to Him, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs.”
Then He said to her, “For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.” And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed (NKJV).
A Syro-Phoenician woman thirsted for more. God is looking for people who want something more, people who are uncomfortable with their present situations. Are you among them?
Can you stand in gap for another? Can you wait on God and keep praying for His help? Can you persevere in intercession in spite of all discouragement?
God is not partial. He is ready to satisfy anyone’s desire irrespective of his or her background, tribe, colour, race or nation.
But many of God’s people have not shown such great hunger that attracts God favour. It’s time you rise and keep knocking at the door of heaven until God answers. Surely, He will answer you. Amen.
+ Lord God, I cry to you, answer me my prayers (mention your needs)
+ Heal me O Lord that I may be whole. Restore my love ones to good health (mention their names).
