The Faith of a Gentile Woman 02-15-24

Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good an worthy of our praise. We are going to consume a light morsel on faith this morning. Let it fill your spirit.

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come before you this morning on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ everywhere to profess that we understand that Satan nor You can work within us against our will. You gave us “free will” and the choices are ours. Oh Lord, let us choose You, Your way, EVERY TIME we make a choice. Help us, for we are often weak. It’s in the matchless name of Jesus I pray and give thanks, Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Faith of a Gentile Woman


Mark 7:24-30

Then Jesus left Galilee and went north to the region of Tyre. He didn’t want anyone to know which house he was staying in, but he couldn’t keep it a secret. Right away a woman who had heard about him came and fell at his feet. Her little girl was possessed by an evil spirit, and she begged him to cast out the demon from her daughter. Since she was a Gentile, born in Syrian Phoenicia, Jesus told her, “First I should feed the children—my own family, the Jews. It isn’t right to take food from the children and throw it to the dogs.” She replied, “That’s true, Lord, but even the dogs under the table are allowed to eat the scraps from the children’s plates.” “Good answer!” he said. “Now go home, for the demon has left your daughter.” And when she arrived home, she found her little girl lying quietly in bed, and the demon was gone.

The woman in these verses had the kind of faith that caused Jesus to move. Do you possess that kind of faith in your life?
