Matthew Chapter 15 Verses 23-28

“But Jesus gave her no reply, not even a word. Then his disciples urged him to send her away. “Tell her to go away,” they said. “She is bothering us with all her begging.” Then Jesus said to the woman, “I was sent only to help God’s lost sheep—the people of Israel.”

Jesus didn’t say anything to the woman he didn’t say yes it no because at this time he was only preaching and healing to the Jews not the gentiles because if you remember back in Matthew chapter ten verses 5 and 6 it says “Jesus sent out the twelve apostles with these instructions: “Don’t go to the Gentiles or the Samaritans, but only to the people of Israel—God’s lost sheep.”
‭‭ so since he have his disciples these introductions he didn’t want to ignore or defy his introductions by helping this woman who wasn’t a Jew because at this second he was unsure if her faith

But she came and worshiped him, pleading again, “Lord, help me!” Jesus responded, “It isn’t right to take food from the children and throw it to the dogs.”

When Jesus said this he was saying that it isn’t right to take away the spiritual food and physical healings away from the Jews and give it to gentiles

She replied, “That’s true, Lord, but even dogs are allowed to eat the scraps that fall beneath their masters’ table.”

Here the woman is saying that Jesus is right but even so a gentile is still able to go catch whatever blessings the master (being Jesus) will be able to give

“Dear woman,” Jesus said to her, “your faith is great. Your request is granted.” And her daughter was instantly healed.”
After hearing this Jesus was convinced that she had great faith and was a true believer so Jesus granted her request and healed her daughter

What I got out of this is that Jesus a mission at the time and it was for him and his disciples to only preach and heal the lost sheep of Israel the Israelites and Jews yet this woman asked him to heal her daughter and at first Jesus didn’t say anything because he wasn’t sure of her faith and he didn’t want to defy his instructions he gave to the disciples but after talking with her he seen her faith and healed her daughter

How can we want something from God yet we don’t have faith that he will give us them ? It says in mark 11:24 “I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.”
This woman had amazing faith that even tho she wasn’t a Jew Jesus healed her daughter because of her faith . If we can have that kind of faith when we ask God for something and we truly believe that he will give us that gift and have not 1 ounce of doubt then we will bless you .
