Answer the King’s Call

Dispeller of shame
Rise up in Jesus’ name
Answer the King’s call
Despite your past fall
That has made you lame
For you the Saviour came

Depart from Lo Debar
Refuse anything that would bar
Rise from emptiness, nothingness
Rise from barrenness, darkness
It is about time you see the Sun
Take the invitation to be a son.

Come out of the house of the sell-out
Hear the King’s call and do not doubt
Take the step of faith, do not fear
Go regardless of your cares and tears
Your table is about to turn for good
Rise out of the empty neighbourhood.

Coming your way is restoration
Coming your way is promotion
Covenant has spoken for you
Covenant has brought breakthrough.
It may sound too good to be true
This is a privilege for a chosen few.

Dwell not on who may have dropped you
Dwell not on who may have disappointed you
This is a New Day for you
It is the dawning of a New Era for YOU
Forget your handicap or infirmity
Come and you will be accepted completely.

2 Samuel 9:1-13 (NIV)
David and Mephibosheth
2 Samuel 9:1-13 (NIV)
David and Mephibosheth
9 David asked, “Is there anyone still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”
2 Now there was a servant of Saul’s household named Ziba. They called him to appear before David, and the king said to him, “Are you Ziba?”
“Your servant,” he replied.
3 The king asked, “Is there no one still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show God’s kindness?”
Ziba answered the king, “There is still a son of Jonathan; he is crippled in both feet.”
4 “Where is he?” the king asked.
Ziba answered, “He is at the house of Makir son of Ammiel in Lo Debar.”
5 So King David had him brought from Lo Debar, from the house of Makir son of Ammiel.
6 When Mephibosheth son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, came to David, he bowed down to pay him honor.
David said, “Mephibosheth!”
“Your servant,” he replied.
7 “Don’t be afraid,” David said to him, “for I will surely show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan. I will restore to you all the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table.”
8 Mephibosheth bowed down and said, “What is your servant, that you should notice a dead dog like me?”
9 Then the king summoned Ziba, Saul’s servant, and said to him, “I have given your master’s grandson everything that belonged to Saul and his family. 10 You and your sons and your servants are to farm the land for him and bring in the crops, so that your master’s grandson may be provided for. And Mephibosheth, grandson of your master, will always eat at my table.” (Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.)
11 Then Ziba said to the king, “Your servant will do whatever my lord the king commands his servant to do.” So Mephibosheth ate at David’s table like one of the king’s sons.
12 Mephibosheth had a young son named Mica, and all the members of Ziba’s household were servants of Mephibosheth. 13 And Mephibosheth lived in Jerusalem, because he always ate at the king’s table, and he was crippled in both feet.
