The Syro-phoenician woman: Verse of the Day


Mark 7:25-30 NKJV‬
[25] For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet. [26] The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. [27] 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.” [28] And she answered and said to Him, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs.” [29] Then He said to her, “For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.” [30] And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed.

The mercies and resources of God are unequivocally available to all, especially to those who approach Him in faith. Christ showed mercy to all who approached Him and He continues to show mercy to all today, who will dare to believe in Him and call on Him.

This Syro-phoenician woman took a very bold step to throw herself at the feet of Jesus to ask help for her afflicted daughter. Even though Jesus tried to put her off, she demonstrated her faith in God and His unlimited mercies to reply that even dogs ate the crumbs that happen to fall off the table. That day her daughter received deliverance from the evil spirits that have afflicted her.

Are you afflicted or facing challenges in your life? Draw close to Christ in faith for His mercy. Never approach God with an entitlement Mentality. Approach Him on the basis of His Word and promises, humbly in the name of Jesus Christ. God always responds to prayers made in accordance to His will.

I John 5:14-15 NKJV‬
[14] Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. [15] And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

Beloved, let us ask and we shall receive.
