Text: Mark 7:28 (KJV) (Mark 7:24-30)
In Mark 7 speaks of a Syrophenician women which the book of Mark refers to as a certain woman. This let me know that who she is, is not as important than what she did.
- Heard of him (Romans 10:17)
- Came (Matthew 11:28)
- Fell at his feet (1 Peter 5:6-7)
Life can cause us to be desperate for a move. There is so much that goes on in our world, on our jobs/schools, in our homes, in our minds and hearts. This certain woman was not going to take “No” for an answer. Her encounter with the Lord did not go as she might have expected it.
Most would have taken offense to Jesus’s response. In Matthew, the author said he initially did not answer her and when he did acknowledge her, he spoke in a tone that seemed a little harsh. What she says next, changed her life for the better. She said “Yes, Lord….” In Matthew, the scripture said she came and worshipped him saying, “Lord, help me”.
Jesus said it was not right for him to give to her what she was asking for before time. We might not be where we want or would like to be in-Christ, but we can start by being in his presence because rather at the table or under the table we can be fed.
Jesus’ replied to her words/faith saying to her “For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out…” and Matthew reads “O Woman, great is thy faith; be it unto thee even as thou wilt.
Your ability to say “Yes, Lord” in these trying times moves demons and make areas whole in your life.
Y- yell your will
E-except His will for your life
S-submit to the process.
