Scripture Reading: Mark 7:27, 29-30
But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. And she answered and said unto Him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs.
And He said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.. And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.
Reflections: The Syrophenician woman had been worried over the condition of her daughter. The problem facing the poor girl was demonically influenced. She wondered how these demons could be revoked until she meets Jesus. She became fully convinced that Jesus had the solution to her daughter’s problem. As she interacted with Him, she refused to let go of her convictions. Nothing Jesus said could turn her away or make her change her mind. She remained resolute and unwavering in her convictions. Touched by her avowed stance, Jesus pronounced her daughter free. This brought about the much awaited turning point. The girl got healed! When you refuse to let go of your conviction that Jesus is the solution you need, your healing/deliverance will surely take place. Undoubtedly, your convictions will surely bring you to a turning point in life!
Prayer: Oh Lord, help me walk with the deepest conviction that there is nothing you cannot do in my life.
Confession: I will not waiver in my convictions that Jesus is the solution to challenges I may encounter.
