Call in to speak with the host
After being dropped Mephibosheth found himself crippled, laying in his lameness and living in a fallen state. He resided in a place called Lo-Debar. Lo-Debar, a place of desolation, barreness, a wasteland, a place where one feeds off the crumbs. Many of us have been dropped, maimed, crippled by people, circumstances and life and just like Mephibosheth, we're leaning to exist from from our fallen place, our wounded conditions, our Lo-debar, feasting on the crumbs, the fragments of our brokennes. Many of us are settling for the crumbs, the portions that's not the sunstance of the promise. Because of the dropping that's crippled us, we can't see past the fall. We've become ground level in our mindset, in our perception, in our Lo-Debar, because we see ourselves through the eyes of our condition and not the position of our Christ and who we are in Him. When King David asked Ziba, "Is there still not someone in the house of Saul, to whom I may show the kindness/covenant of God? Ziba told him, "Yes, there's still yet a son of Jonathan BUT he's lame in his feet". Ziba saw Mephibosheth's condition not his position. He saw his problem not his potential, he saw the deficiency not his destiny, the handicap and not the heart, the inadequacy and not his identity. People will name you by your condition and fail to announce you by your identity. He saw the crumbs of purpose. Yet David, still said "Go get him"! The king still called for the crippled! The king saw beyond his inability, he saw his image. He saw past the condition into his position. He saw past the problems and gazed on the promise. He saw past Lo-Debar, a barren place into a position of fruitfulness. The King sees recognizes you! He see's you where you are. He's calling you to Himself and to the table He's prepared for you. "Come, says the Lord." Will you come?
It's good to talk.
