Don't Sell Out

Then King David sent, and fetched him [Mephibosheth] out of the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, from Lo-debar. —2 Samuel 9:4

Mephibosheth dwelt in the house of Machir, which means "sold out." He had sold out to his circumstances. Have you ever said, "Well, under the circumstances, I'm doing okay." Who says you are under your circumstances? You are more than a conqueror. But if your circumstances dictate your lifestyle instead of your position, then you will sell out your birthright for your current situation instead of waiting for your future promise. You may have settled for less, but God won't.

Like the man with the withered hand, God will demand that you stretch forth your disability (Mark 3:1-5). Perhaps, instead, you are like the prodigal son eating with pigs, but the Father is waiting for you to come to His feast (Luke 15:11-32). You may be eating crumbs, but God has prepared His table for you (Luke 16:19-31). Yes, you can run from covenant but you cannot hide. The light of His Light will expose you. You will say with the psalmist, "If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me (Psalm 139:11).

Don't run from the covenant. Embrace the new covenant with Jesus as Your Lord and Savior.

Jesus, I desire to be in covenant with You.
No longer will I sell out to the world with
all of its pleasures and temptations.
I desire You and You alone. Amen.
