"But [Jesus] answered and said, 'It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs'" (Matt. 15:26).

The Syrophenician woman wanted healing for her daughter. Jesus called healing "the children's bread." If healing was the children's bread back then, it's still the children's bread today.

Who were the children back then? The lost sheep of the house of Israel. Who are the children today? These Scriptures tell us:

"The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God."
(Romans 8:16)

"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God…."
(1 John 3:1)

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name."
(John 1:12)

We are the children! Healing is our bread! We have been grafted into God's family through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Through the new birth, we are now new creatures in Christ, the children of God.

Psalm 37:25 says, "I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread." We don't have to beg for bread, because the bread belongs to us through Jesus Christ. It is part of our redemption, our covenant, our inheritance in Christ. God doesn't want us begging for healing, because healing belongs to us!

Jesus called healing the children's bread. I qualify for that
bread, for I'm a child of God. I don't beg for healing; I
receive it now because it already belongs to me!
