HUMILITY AND HELP

Satan tried to destroy the faith of one of God's child the very night she was born again, when, unfamiliar with the Bible, she opened it at random to Matthew, Chapter 15. There, when the Syrophoenican woman pleaded with Jesus to heal her demon-possessed daughter, Jesus replied, referring to the "bread" of healing, "It doesn't seem right to take bread from the children and throw it to the dogs" (Matthew 15:26, TLB). "What a cruel thing to say!" this new child thought. "How could the Son of God turn down a woman with a sick child?" Maybe, you, too, may feel that your petitions have been cruelly turned down. But, let's take a closer look at the story. Jesus didn't turn her down; He simply stripped her of her hypocrisy! To win His favor, she had presented herself as someone she was not, calling Him "Thou son of David" (Matthew 15:22), thus giving the impression of an Israelite. But no form of deceit or pretense of being someone we're not will get us anywhere with God...Jesus called her bluff. Immediately the woman changed her approach...instead of putting up a false religious front, she humbled herself, and made an honest plea based on her own inadequacy. "...she said...'Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.' 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" (Matthew 15:27-28, NKJV). Whatever your need or petition ? Whatever it is, don't be afraid to humble yourself before Him. I promise you, when you take that approach, you will never be turned down
28Then Jesus answered, "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
Matthew 15:28
