Subject: Im too desperate to Be Denied
Jesus had just left the Sanhedrin Council leaving them steaming because of their Traditions and Religion and being called Hypocrites and Blind leaders. Enters the coast of Tyre and Sidon which is a Gentie land. Here comes out of nowhere, it seems, this Cannonite woman walks up to Jesus very brazen and Worships and Praises Jesus," Lord, Son of David, have mercy upon me! Jesus said nothing!
In some situations when we petition God we don't hear an answer right away but as long as He does it I'm fine. There is a song I'm reminded of, "Any way you Bless me I'm Satisfied", and the Disciples are now agitated saying, Send her away she crieth after us. Have you ever had an emergency during an inconvenient time in service, maybe offering or announcements and there's an attack of the enemy?
You need God's help; don't care about Church politics or protocol you need Jesus NOW! So she has everyone's attention now including Jesus because this a Brazen act...her daughter is demon-possessed!
So Jesus has a dialog with the Samaritan woman- Samaritans and Jews were at odds because of Samaritans being half-bread and were considered dogs. Jesus says, I didn't come but for the Lost sheep of Israel, and Healing is the Israel Children's Bread. The Cannonite woman worships Jesus again, saying LORD HELP ME!
JESUS when you come to Him, will give you a chance to redeem yourself lol. The Samaritan woman accepts who she is, a Samaritan with all the Derogatories, and states, Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from the master's table? Signifying what ingredients are in the entire loaf of bread is also in the crumbs and I won't be denied because I'm too desperate and my daughter needs to be delivered from these demons and you're the deliverer and I Won't be denied! Jesus tells her, Be it unto you as you wish, Consider it Done because of your great Faith!
To Conclude is to say, Whatever you need from the Lord, Exercise your Faith and watch God Consider it Done for You. Scripture declares He's not a Man that He should lie or the Son of man that he should repent Numbers 29:13. Have the tenacity like this Samaritan Woman and Have that kind of Faith where you're too desperate to Be Denied and see your Faith Rewarded!
