Syrophenician Woman’s Daughter- Performance of Jesus
The nature of this woman’s problem, as described by the disciples, was she was a gentile, a Greek specifically by ethnicity, Syrophenician by nationality. Jesus ignored her plea at first because of His primary mission; He came to save the Lost Children of God (Mark 7:27). She humbled herself to Jesus for the life of her child, grievously vexed by a demon (Matthew 15:22), and Jesus recognized her sacrifice and her Faith in Him (Matthew 15:28). Every Work of Jesus has sponsored Faith and or Belief. The Work of Jesus would have been dead if it was not done by Faith, and of those who believed. Jesus was known for His preaching about the Kingdom of God and the preparation for entering the Kingdom.
Mark 7:24-30 Jesus understood His purpose; he came to save the Jews, God’s chosen people, who were lost; however, they rejected Him (John 1:11-13). Jesus was looking for the Faith factor that the Jews were supposed to have as the Children of God. He did miracles among them first because that was His purpose. He was rebuilding the Kingdom. If you reject His mission, God’s plan is beyond the comprehension of man, as seen here in Mark 7:24. Jesus stepped beyond the parameters of His purpose due to the Faith of those who did receive Him. Not to those who are born of kin, nor of blood, or the will of man but born of the Spirit of God (John 3:6).
Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, [thou] Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast [it] to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great [is] thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
The LORD my Deliverer, Jehovah Metsudhathi (Psalm 18:2), we thank You for the undeniable Faith of believers. We praise You because Your healing power is extended to us, and we recover to Glorify You. We decree and declare blessings upon those who walk in the compassion of Your salvation so that; by the Work of Your Faith, we believe and see the power of Your Love. Now, for the Kingdom and the Glory of God, we petition, with anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
