A Canaanite woman whose daughter was severely possessed by a demon asked JESUS to heal her...But HE did not answer... "Yes, LORD, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table..." (Matthew 15:21-28). This woman made the misery of her child her own! She was willing to suffer rejection in order to obtain healing; her persistence became unrelenting; AND HER FAITH GREW IN CONTACT WITH THE PERSON JESUS! The woman's persistence, wisdom and courage to not accept JESUS' refusal to give her what she asked for, was the RESULT OF HER LOVE AND FAITH GROWING WHEN IN THE PRESENCE OF JESUS! She became STRONGER in HIS PRESENCE not weaker or discouraged. She started with a request and this request grew into EXPECTANT FAITH! IN JESUS' PRESENCE HER LOVE GREW INTO EXPECTANT FAITH! AMEN! HALLELUJAH! Are you praying for someone you love to know JESUS or be healed? Are you praying for yourself not to doubt or be discouraged? GO BEFORE JESUS AND LET HIS PRESENCE GROW YOUR FAITH. YOU WILL BECOME BOLDER AND MORE CONFIDENT; YOU WILL ACTUALLY "FEED" (GROW) ON HIS PRESENCE. YOU WILL EXPERIENCE "EXPECTANT FAITH" KNOWING HIS LOVE AND MERCY KNOWS NO BOUNDARY'S! How can we keep from falling to our knees and Praising HIM as the Canaanite woman did? As the sun (SON within you) rises, the birds begin to sing, and color begins to come alive from the dark night; how can we not go into this day with AMEN'S AND HALLELUJAHS!!!!!
