II Samuel

Found

Luke 19:10

II Samuel 9:1-8

Mephibosheth, crippled from a young age, bowed at the feet of King David. He was grateful to the king for calling him out, bringing him to his house, sitting him at his table and restoring unto him the land of his grandfather, King Saul.

What a beautiful picture this is of our relationship with Jesus.

Previously we had wandered around crippled by sin. Until the Lord, our King, sought us out. He called us to be children of His. To come into His fold, to eat from his table.

As we humbly and gratefully accepted the invitation we became as royalty; joint heirs with Jesus.

King David sought Mephibosheth to give him a new, better way of life.

Jesus did the same for you.

All Part of the Plan

Romans 8:28

The heckler walked alongside King David and his men. He threw stones at him. He cursed him. He made false accusations against him.

But David didn’t focus on the heckler. He didn’t even respond to the man. He wouldn’t allow his men to retaliate either.

Instead King David kept his focus on God. He trusted that God was aware of what was going on and that He would turn this evil into good.

If you’re going through a period of hurt, frustration or bitterness don’t allow your flesh to get the best of you. Keep your focus on Jesus and being part of His plan. He’ll work all things to your good.
