“Then Jesus answered and said to her, ‘O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.’ And her daughter was healed from that very hour.”
Have you ever been talking with someone who wasn’t really responding? You were pouring out your heart, but they just weren’t interested in what you had to say.
That appeared to be the case for the woman in Mark 7 who begged Jesus for help. She was a Gentile who approached Him with a great need. She wanted Him to deliver her daughter from the power of demons.
But Jesus told her, “First I should feed the children—my own family, the Jews. It isn’t right to take food from the children and throw it to the dogs” (verse 27 NLT).
