Almighty Father, we worship You. We praise Your Holy name. We thank You Lord for life, health, grace to celebrate another Christmas season. We thank you Father for all your faithfulness, grace and mercies that are new each day. We are grateful for the gift of Your son Jesus Christ, for salvation available through him, and for the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us. Be thou exalted today and always in Jesus name we pray.
BIBLE TEXTS: Psalm 65 v11, 2 Samuel 9 v1-13
Psalm 65:11: ‘You crown the year with Your goodness, And Your paths drip with abundance.’
Extracts from 2 Samuel 9:1-13:
v1 ‘Is there still anyone left of the house of Saul to whom I may show kindness for Jonathan’s sake? v3 ‘’—–Is there not still someone of the house of Saul, to whom I may show the kindness of God?” v7“So David said to him, ‘Do not fear, for I will show you kindness for Jonathan your father’s sake, and will restore to you all the land of Saul your grandfather, and you shall eat bread at my table continually. V8 “Then he bowed himself, and said ‘What is your servant, that you should look upon such a dead dog as I?’
Brethren, there was a vivid and instant manifestation of God’s goodness in Mephiboseth’s life. Through David’s action, Mephiboseth flew out from Lo Debar, the place of poverty, shame and total hopelessness. Mephiboseth was flown away from total wretchedness, to live and dine with kings, and into being beneficiary of the lands of Saul his grandfather. He also received work teams to manage and till the land for him.
Good to note:
+God caused David to go out of his way to search out any surviving descendant(s) of Saul.
+David moved to show kindness because of God’s covenant with him. Psalm 89:19-37. Even when David transgressed, God’s mercy and kindness were not withheld from him.
+David also sought out Saul’s lineage because of his own covenant with his friend Jonathan.
In Jesus name:
*Father, I thank you for all your kindness to me and loved ones through the year. We are grateful for your mercies over our nation this year. We thank you for another Christmas season, as the end of the year approaches.
*Father, please crown the year for me and loved ones with Your goodness. Please cause me and my loved ones to be remembered for a flight out of every Lo Debar this season. May Your mercy and grace triumph over every judgement, failures, and omissions.
*Father, please grant me grace to be faithful to all covenants with You, and with fellow men.
*Father, please let Your Spirit stir me to remember and search out those to whom You wish to show Your kindness through me this season.
Everlasting Father we thank You for answered prayers. We thank You for the privilege to come to Your throne of Grace. We thank you for blessings of being beneficiaries of Your covenants with our spiritual fathers. Be thou exalted Lord.
Merry Christmas Brethren.
Thank You Jesus.
Jesus Loves You.
