We have established that the captivity-turning power of God is infinite,
immeasurable and limitless. His power is the power of the Highest and
the Highest Power. Luke 1:35,37.
Even if your case looks like humanly forgotten, written-off and concluded
in the negative; God is able to turn the tide around for good. He has
done it severally in the Bible. He has not changed, He will not change
because He cannot change. Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8.
Mephibosheth who was the grandson of King Saul had one of the most
pathetic stories of seemingly forgotten case. He lost his father,
grandfather and many close associates the same day. He became lame
and depended on people for everything. He was “deposited”,
“abandoned” and “forgotten” in a remote ghetto town and in the house
of Machir (meaning battered). God remembered Mephibosheth; He
visited Mephibosheth with His captivity-turning power!
“And David said, Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I
may shew him kindness for Jonathan's sake? And there was of the house
of Saul a servant whose name was Ziba. And when they had called him
unto David, the king said unto him, Art thou Ziba? And he said, Thy
servant is he. And the king said, Is there not yet any of the house of Saul,
that I may shew the kindness of God unto him? And Ziba said unto the
king, Jonathan hath yet a son, which is lame on his feet. And the king said
unto him, Where is he? And Ziba said unto the king, Behold, he is in the
house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, in Lo-debar. Then king David sent,
and fetched him out of the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, from Lo-
debar. Now when Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, the son of Saul,
was come unto David, he fell on his face, and did reverence. And David
said, Mephibosheth. And he answered, Behold thy servant! And David
said unto him, Fear not: for I will surely shew thee kindness for Jonathan
thy father's sake, and will restore thee all the land of Saul thy father; and
thou shalt eat bread at my table continually. And he bowed himself, and
said, What is thy servant, that thou shouldest look upon such a dead dog
as I am? Then the king called to Ziba, Saul's servant, and said unto him, I
have given unto thy master's son all that pertained to Saul and to all his
house. Thou therefore, and thy sons, and thy servants, shall till the land
for him, and thou shalt bring in the fruits, that thy master's son may have
food to eat: but Mephibosheth thy master's son shall eat bread alway at
my table. Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants. Then said Ziba
unto the king, According to all that my lord the king hath commanded his
servant, so shall thy servant do. As for Mephibosheth, said the king, he
shall eat at my table, as one of the king's sons. And Mephibosheth had a
young son, whose name was Micha. And all that dwelt in the house of
Ziba were servants unto Mephibosheth. So Mephibosheth dwelt in
Jerusalem: for he did eat continually at the king's table; and was lame on
both his feet.” – II Samuel 9:1-13
Whoever you are that is reading this today; the captivity-turning God will
remember you. If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and
personal Savior; that is where it begins from, go to the salvation page on
our website and do that now!
He will visit you and turn the tide in your favor. He will put a new song in
your mouth. Just like the captivity-turning God relocated Mephibosheth
from a ghetto town to the palace; from the house of Machir (battered) to
the splendor of the palace of the most powerful and godly king of his
time (King David).
God will relocate you to your breakthrough! God (the Creator of all
creations); the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will show you kindness!
Believe Him, serve Him and trust Him!
