One Grecian woman, in the Bible, seized an opportunity to receive an unqualified miracle of Jesus Christ. Of course, Jesus was nice to everyone, but he was on a different mission when the Grecian woman intercepted him and demanded for her miracle. Despite Jesus’ objection to the demand, the woman insisted that Jesus must help her. The Messiah positively responded and credited the woman for her great faith. The Bible reported, “From there He arose and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And He entered a house and wanted no one to know it, but He could not be hidden. For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet. The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. But Jesus said to her, “Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.” And she answered and said to Him, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs.” Then He said to her, “For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.” And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed. (Mark 7:24-30).
Anyone who expects to receive the miracle of God must operate in faith. Indeed, God has unrestricted power to do whatever he likes; however, God maintains a principle to only honor people who operate in faith. That is, the Creator will help someone who cast an absolute trust him. (God will help a *person of faith* no matter how heavy or light the weight of his or her problem may be). Meanwhile, not just any claim of faith works with God; someone must have had an actionable faith to have his or her expectations met. That is, a person who claims to have faith in God must also demonstrate courage by taking every necessary step that will help his or her aspiration.
Dear God I believe that you have power to do all things. There is no limit to what you can do for people who trust in you. I also understand that you require your children to be proactive in their works as they take the steps of faith. Therefore, I pray that you help me to put my faith to practice by taking proactive steps that will lead to my breakthrough. I believe in the scripture that states, “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me!” I believe there is no limit to the amount of miracles that I can receive through faith in Jesus Christ! Please give me the strength to put my faith to practice so that I can prosper in the land of the living. Let my testimony abide to the glorification of your name! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
