Faith is the ability to see God in the dark. You cannot be accused again! Mercy is taken over because God doesn’t call the qualified; He qualifies the called!
Topic: Lord, Qualify Me! I Am Not A Dog! [Sunday 3 September, 2017]
Today’s scripture Vs. 26- “But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.” By telling the woman about the children’s bread and dogs, the Lord was directly telling the woman: “YOU ARE NOT QUALIFIED FOR THE HEALING ANOINTING.” The Lord was telling the woman that His primary assignment and message in the 33and half years of His life was to the Jews and not to the Gentiles. In God’s plan, the Gentiles would be saved but after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ! That was why he told the disciples after His resurrection and final departure: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations………”The “ALL NATIONA” meant the Gentiles (non Jews).
Also see Acts 1:8 – “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witness unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” The UTTERMOST PART OF THE EARTH means the Gentiles (non Jews)! But this woman received healing for her daughter even though she was a Gentile. That means heaven QUALIFIED HER by taking the children’s bread and giving it to her and the LORD is telling me right now that He is going to QUALIFY a user of today’s devotional for outstanding testimonies that would defy explanations!
Yes! From the life of God’s people in the Bible (tomorrow’s devotional), God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called by His MERCY! That’s why whatever
