Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:28 and the theme of Jesus the king. when this dear lady cried truth Lord to his title of dog for her He saw in her great faith. It only takes little faith to go to heaven but great faith brings heaven to you. His response to her great faith was you can have it your way. When great faith is operating in our life you want His will to be your will and that's when you can have it your way. If we practice great faith let it be in the area of our children and grandchildren that they may be made spiritually whole. Let this be our prayer Lord I believe help my unbelief and give me great faith.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:27 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our study for today we find some help from the statement "truth Lord". He calls this lady who desired bread of a dog and tells her we cannot share the children's bread with dogs. The word used for dog is a little house hold pet name for dog.She humbly identifies with this term. She realizes that this household pet is one loved and petted by the children of the house she tells the Lord she will be satisfied just to collect the chrumbs the children dropped on the floor. Oh what a position of humility this lady takes. It moves the heart of our Lord towards her.
Let us muse again today Matthew 15:25 and the theme of Jesus the king. After Jesus and the disciples have done all to deter this lady she comes and worships Him. The word means to put the face in the dirt and cry aloud. What did she cry? She didn’t know how to get membership into this sheep’s club the only thing she knew to do was cry Lord, help me Let us remember this day our Lord is still drawn to those three little words Lord, help me.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:24 and the them of Jesus the king. When our Lord ends His silence to this lady He speaks directly to His disciples when He said I have come to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. He is stating a fact that He is come to minister only to the lost sheep, lost sheep only. She knows that she is not one of His sheep, most would have left with nothing, but not her. She doubles down on her pleading her case, she refuses to be denied. Let us learn some lessons about perseverance in prayer from this great story.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:26 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for study today we see a truth about why this response? He calls this lady crying for help a dog and tells her she’s not worthy of the children’s bread, why this response? One reason was to remind her of the fact she was a Canaanite and not a part of the chosen family. If she was given this bread it would certainly be grace that gave it. The second reason was to see what it would take to stop her from asking. Let us not be deterred by anything when seeking His help.
