Matthew 15:22-29 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly from demon-possession.” Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.” He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.” The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said. He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to their dogs.” “Yes, Lord,” she said, “but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.” Then Jesus answered, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour. Jesus left there and went along the Sea of Galilee. Then he went up on a mountainside and sat down.
These examples of faith and healing are put into the scripture for a reason. These examples of faith and healing are placed in our holy Word so we will believe and have the same kind of faith of the woman who kept crying out. The faith this woman used two thousand years ago is the same faith we can use today. The love of God we experience is real and is the same love people experienced two thousand years ago. The healing power Christ used in healing this woman’s daughter is real and this healing power is the same today as it was then. The power of God to act is the same today as then. Miracles happen today just like they happened then because the same miracle power is at work today as it was then.
