“At that time, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a Canaanite woman of that district came and called out, ‘Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter is tormented by a demon.’ But Jesus did not say a word in answer to her.”
If you were in the Canaanite woman’s shoes, how would you have felt if Jesus did not seem to respond to your request?
What would you have done?
What growth in the Spirit might Jesus be inviting you to in such a situation?
Heritage word—“The problems that confront us . . . are grace gifts.”
