25 A woman whose little daughter was possessed by an impure spirit came and fell at Jesus’ feet. 26 The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter.
27 “First let the children eat all they want,” he told her, “for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”
28 “Lord,” she replied, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”
29 Then he told her, “For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter.”
30 She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.
I see God saying kingdom ministry is always active and available to meet a need. I hear God saying His love leads me to reach beyond my personal, cultural, and traditional preferences. Hearing God’s word calls me, draws me, and causes me to pursue Him. His word deposits faith in me. I hear God saying, Satan is a destroyer and likes to start early in life. It’s the devil’s aim to bring devastating pain through those close to me.
I will make time to reach, teach, and repeat (with loving patience) the goodness of Christ. I will continue to give children to Jesus. Through praise I celebrate the answer of my prayer in Jesus. No one is out of reach from Christ deliverance. Send your word LORD and heal.
Today I will take seven children to my altar in prayer. I will ask through the laying on of hands, “Impart the wisdom of Christ.”
