21 Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed.”
23 But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, “Send her away, for she cries out after us.”
24 But He answered and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, help me!”
26 But He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”
27 And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”
28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
Author and Finisher of our faith, help every reader to take a step closer to having faith like this woman. Lord, help us remember your character when the situation looks horrific and when it seems like all is lost. Lord, help us not to waver in the face of “it”, whatever “it” may be for us, but help us to respond with the truth of Your Word. Help us to be deeply rooted in You and unwavering in the knowledge of not only what You can do but who You are. Even with the questions in our mind, let us continue to choose to trust You. In Jesus’s name I pray, Amen!
