"Just give me the crumbs". That's what the Syrophenician woman said to Jesus. Her daughter was possessed with an unclean spirit, and when she approached Jesus concerning her challenge, Jesus made it clear to her that unbelievers are not entitled to eat the food that belongs to believers. But the woman, concurring with Jesus, was willing to settle for crumbs. She wasn't a believer, yet her daughter was delivered from an unclean spirit – with crumbs.
I've discovered that most of our needs won't require the level of faith we engage to get them. If crumbs could cast out unclean spirits, then it can get a miracle job, it can acquire a property, it can even get you a contract. You need to stop waiting or contemplating, faith is like a net that has to be cast. Faith is also like a cheque that has to be cashed. The woman with the issue of blood had faith all along, but she didn't receive her healing until she moved to touch Jesus.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; YOU DON'T NEED TOO MUCH FAITH TO TAKE THE CRUMBS OR TOUCH HIS GARMENT. JUST GO AHEAD AND DO IT! Have a most fruitful week, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
