As King David rules the kingdom, I am sure Mephibosheth lived each day wondering, crying, confused, feeling hopeless, and even angry! Questions that we all ask ourselves..."WHY has this happened to ME?!" "What did I do to deserve this?!" "When will ANYTHING good happen to me?!" His nurse, a nurturer/caregiver carried him...and he fell, resulting in injury.
Have you ever been carried by life and then all of a sudden you fall? Something happens and you can't get up? You're too weak, faint, ill, unresponsive, lethargic, comatose....just can't do it anymore! And to add to it, all that rightfully pertained to him (land, money, servants, houses), was enjoyed by a servant, Ziba.
BUT, one day God laid it on King Davids heart to bless somebody...anybody of the house of Saul. God would have it that this person to receive the blessing, was Jonathan's son...a man of whom King Davids soul was knit! I like to call it a "whosoever will" moment! And his name was mentioned...Mephibosheth! All that was once his father's was now returned to him by King David, he had the privilege of eating at the kings table as one of the kings sons.
Sometimes it feels like life has dropped us and left us on the side of the road...lame, broken, beaten, and bruised. When that moment happens, we sometimes give up on living and just start existing...just getting by for the day. But, somewhere in His time, I am convinced that God is laying you and I on someones mind...on their heart. They will have the urge, "itch", or unction to say "I need to bless someone of the house of Charles Law."
I find it so funny that when my dad was killed....I was five just like Mephibosheth! I had my own pity party table, "reservations for one please!" Then, I found the truth...and it made me free. In Isaiah 61: 1-3 Jesus is the King and He's promised to give us "beauty for ashes, oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness." I've given up my pity party table and now hold reservations for the Psalm 23:5 table! If you read a little further in Isaiah 61 at vs 7 He declares instead of your shame, "you shall receive double...in their land, they shall possess double:everlasting joy shall be unto them."
No longer hold your head in shame and humiliation; a promise has been given to you & I. God is a God of recompense, and everything you lost...You WILL get it back!
