About This Message

1) DON’T STOP SEEKING
Jesus left that place and went to the vicinity of Tyre. He entered a house and did not want anyone to know it; yet he could not keep his presence secret. In fact, as soon as she heard about him, a woman whose little daughter was possessed by an evil spirit came and fell at his feet.

Mark 7:24-25 (NIV)
She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter.

Mark 7:26 (NIV)

 

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.”

Matthew 15:22 (NIV)
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.”                         Matthew 15:23-27 (NIV)
From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.                                           Matthew 11:12 (ESV)
2) DON’T STOP BELIEVING

Then Jesus answered, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.                   Matthew 15:28 (NIV)

 

I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. ”                                       Matthew 17:20 (NIV)
