TOPIC: Coming Out Of Lo-Debar (II)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 1, Isaiah 2, 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, Psalm 105:1-11
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Samuel 1:1-9 (KJV)
1 Now it came to pass after the death of Saul, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites, and David had abode two days in Ziklag;
2 It came even to pass on the third day, that, behold, a man came out of the camp from Saul with his clothes rent, and earth upon his head: and so it was, when he came to David, that he fell to the earth, and did obeisance.
3 And David said unto him, From whence comest thou? And he said unto him, Out of the camp of Israel am I escaped.
4 And David said unto him, How went the matter? I pray thee, tell me. And he answered, That the people are fled from the battle, and many of the people also are fallen and dead; and Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also.
5 And David said unto the young man that told him, How knowest thou that Saul and Jonathan his son be dead?
6 And the young man that told him said, As I happened by chance upon mount Gilboa, behold, Saul leaned upon his spear; and, lo, the chariots and horsemen followed hard after him.
7 And when he looked behind him, he saw me, and called unto me. And I answered, Here am I.
8 And he said unto me, Who art thou? And I answered him, I am an Amalekite.
9 He said unto me again, Stand, I pray thee, upon me, and slay me: for anguish is come upon me, because my life is yet whole in me.

MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:
Yesterday, we looked at the spiritual and physical meaning of Lo-debar. Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan who was supposed to be found among princes, was forgotten at Lo-debar.
Similarly, in our Fire Scripture today, we read about David whom God moved from grass to GRACE. He was totally forgotten in the wilderness by his father. But God showed mercy to David. Today, that same God will remember you for good, in Jesus’ name. Grace attracts divine favour, divine protection and divine connection. David, who later became king in Israel, told Mephibosheth not to be afraid. Likewise, the Kings of kings, Jesus Christ is calling you today to come out of whatever is holding you down. He is calling you to come out from your Lo-debar and begin a new life that can only be found in Him. He says, “Don’t be afraid, just come.
Mephibosheth had a disability -He was lame in his two legs, but the king said, “Come to me the way you are and I will show you favour.” Jesus is also calling you to come with your disability, your inadequacies, your burden, your sorrow, your pains, and He will give you rest (Matthew 11:29).
That song says, “Just as I am, without one plea.” Jesus Christ is the Balm in Gilead that can soothe your hurting soul, fight your pains and heal every disability or challenge that you might have. He will also position you where you rightly belong: among princes.
Maybe like Mephibosheth, circumstances that were never your fault have pushed you to Lo-debar and you might have even been forgotten there. Beloved, just like King David opened the book of remembrance to the son of his bosom friend, Jonathan, and called him out, and restored to him all that belonged to him by inheritance, Jesus is also calling you out from where the powers of your father’s house have hidden you for years. And just as Mephibosheth responded to the king’s order, if you can respond to Jesus’ call today, He will save you, restore all that you have lost and put you in your rightful place. God bless you as you respond, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, raise a voice for me where I need help, in the name of Jesus.
- Every retrogressive label in any area of my life, be removed, in the name of Jesus.
- I pull down all the strongholds erected against my progress, in the name of Jesus.
- Every generational curse affecting my progress, break, in the name of Jesus.
- I release myself from any inherited bondage, in the name of Jesus.
- My destiny, arise by fire and possess your possessions, in the name of Jesus.
- Every arrangement by sorcerers and witches fashioned against my life, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
