Because they don’t have word. And answered prayers come out of word. You have to get a word on it for
that manifestation to come out of that word. Whatever is in the whole is in the seed. God and His word are
So, if God gives you His word – God is IN the word. The woman right here in this story (Matthew 15:21-28)…
Jesus talked about her faith. Because you know what she said?
She said, ‘I don’t need the bread. Give me the crumbs.’
This was so good because Jesus was struggling having Israel to understand faith. But here comes a
And she said, ‘I know I’m not Israelite. You came to give them the bread. Just give me crumbs.
I don’t need bread.’
Why? Because if you take the verdict to an analyst or chemist and he break it down, whatever was in the
bread is also in the crumbs!
And she said, ‘If I can just get a crumb, I’m going to get the same thing Israel is going to get! I

> It tells you you’re an overcomer, but you feel like the world [has] got its foot on you.
> It tells you He has given you everything to triumph, when you feel like life is breaking your back.
I mean, it’s amazing what God says about you versus the true conditions that you’re living out.
Why does God make such crazy declarations?
Because the SEED of Himself is now IN YOU! And God knows what’s in Him.
