2 kings 25
27 And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, that Evil-merodach king of Babylon in the year that he began to reign did lift up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah out of prison; 28 And he spake kindly to him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings that were with him in Babylon; 29 And changed his prison garments: and he did eat bread continually before him all the days of his life. 30 And his allowance was a continual allowance given him of the king, a daily rate for every day, all the days of his life.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
In the midst of captivity,
In the midst of the struggles of this present age…
In the midst of adversity, you have kept me. You have spared my life from from the judgment that should have come upon me. Christ, your bloodshed has been for me an atonement. You have placed me at the table to eat good things. You have given my mouth the taste of your word. It is as honey to my lips. It makes my soul glad in the midst of the daily struggles I may face.
You have set my set feet on solid ground.You have not allowed me to remaon in the pit. You have called me beloved and called me to dine in your presence.
Oh, the sweetness of your presence is to me a relief from despair. When I thought I would surely die, it was then that you rescued me.
I am humbled by your great mercy.
God you allowed my feet to stray yet, not so far that your mercy could not reach me.
Like a father to a wayward child, you have given me correction yet you have not hindered me from coming to your table of grace.
If for a season calamity has come,
It has been so that I wod understand your persistent love. You drew me. Your chords of love brought me. So, I will trust that it has been for a lesson, I must endure. If out of mercy you have stopped me, it has been to perfect your purpose, to create your image, in me. If for Moment I may weep… I can rest assured that your mercies are new every morning and that the time of rejoicing is about to appear.
I will not forget your goodness. I will cry out to you in the midst of my trouble for you will hear my cries and will pardon.
Forgive my doubts and calm my fears lest I fail you. Help my eyes to see your glory and my thoughts to be those that bring you praise.
In this world we will suffer tribulation, rejection, persecution, hatred and pain. But your grace will sustain us in the evil day.
You will hold up my head and show your love towards me. I will trust in you. You are the lifter of my head. You are the shield for my soul. I should not fear what the enemy will attempt against me, for you will work all things together for my good.
I will rejoice in the midst of my tears for your love is greater than my struggles. You love is greater than my pain. Your love is able to restore me and have me seated in the heaven lies, places of royalty. I am yours.
Mold me, break me, cause me to be remade, In this way, I may bring you the highest praise. I am yours. I am your possession, your clay, your vessel an yours to use ats tou will. Nothing can pluck me from your hands. In your hands I am safe.
You give the wound of correction and also the balm and salve to heal. Of this I can be sure, your love is all I need.
Secure, forgiven, remade and made worthy. Of this I can be sure. Accepted, annointed, positioned and redeemed, This I can depend on. Jesus is all I need. Through you I can do all thjngs. In you I am complete. Your love is all I need.
