Today’s devotion for today is based on Matthew 15:28, “Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment.”
The question that comes up is. “How do you get ‘great faith?’ The answer is found in the response of the Canaanite woman. She showed great faith by having a great dependency on Jesus. We see that in her desperate plea, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me”… and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!
Do you have great faith? There’s no gauge or scale to measure that. The question is a bit misleading. It implies an emphasis on us. Instead, as you face today and whatever challenges that arise, be dependent on Jesus, he is great. His love for you is great. His interest in your life is great. His ability to bless you even when things look bleak is great. You are in great hands.
Please prays the prayer for today with me: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, strengthen my reliance and dependency on you. When I am weak, make me strong. When I am lonely, assure me of your presence. When I am down, lift me up with your promise to love and forgive. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
