“A Gentile woman who lived there came to him, pleading, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! For my daughter is possessed by a demon that torments her severely.” But Jesus gave her no reply, not even a word. Then his disciples urged him to send her away. “Tell her to go away,” they said. “She is bothering us with all her begging.” Then Jesus said to the woman, “I was sent only to help God’s lost sheep—the people of Israel.” But she came and worshiped him, pleading again, “Lord, help me!” Jesus responded, “It isn’t right to take food from the children and throw it to the dogs.” She replied, “That’s true, Lord, but even dogs are allowed to eat the scraps that fall beneath their masters’ table.” “Dear woman,” Jesus said to her, “your faith is great. Your request is granted.” And her daughter was instantly healed.”
I love this set of verses! We need to have faith that leads us to not care when it happens, but we believe it will happen.
After she was ignored and was told He didn’t come for her, she worshiped Him. God loves us and sent His Son for us, that is all we need to know and then have faith in Him. Through Jesus we have eternal life. Even if we wait for a life time, we worship and give glory to Him, and live our lives to glorify the Father. We have received a gift that is eternal and it’s for our true home in heaven, we can’t get caught up in the worldly details. Seek and you will find, believe and live boldly showing how much you love God and Jesus will be the strength you need to listen to the Holy Spirit and shine.
