Mercy Never Stops Looking

mephibThe way his life started really sucked.

  • He was born into a fading dynasty and disgraced family. Shamed.
  • His dad and granddad were killed. Orphaned.
  • His family ousted from a palace and the remnants left in poverty. Impoverished.
  • His nurse was running for her life and dropped him…breaking his spine. Handicapped.

What a sad tale and I never get enough of this story of the crippled man with the funny name: Mephibosheth.

After the miserable start to his life, he lived a hidden loveless existence in a horrid little village named “Depression” (Lo Debar).

But just when Mephibosheth was sure no one was even looking for him, the King found him.

Desiring to do good to any family left from his beloved friend Jonathan, David sought and found this broken shell of a forgotten man.

What a change:

  • brought into the king’s presence
  • welcomed at the king’s throne
  • feasting at the king’s table
  • the fortune and destiny of his family restored
  • people who ruled him now served him

…all simply because the king found him and decreed mercy over his life.

Mercy.

  • Mercy restores.
  • Mercy renews.
  • Mercy rescues.
  • Mercy redeems.

Mercy is the fierce force of love that changes the trajectories of life. Mercy hides our wounds and brokenness under the table of the King’s kindness.

Mercy is the passionate power that releases captives and recreates them as King’s children in spite of their brokenness.

  • Lameness can’t stop mercy.
  • Lostness can’t stop mercy.
  • Limitations can’t stop mercy.

When the King declares mercy in a life, everything changes and nothing will ever be the same again!
