Self-Worth Restored

[Tuesday, May 22]

“I have come to restore all your self-worth, says the Lord. Let Me show you your value this day. Even the blows that were meant to demean you, I shall make them as though they never were.”

Prophetic Scripture:

…He shall eat at my table, as one of the king’s sons (2 Samuel 9:11).

Mephibosheth was the little five-year-old crippled grandson of Saul who was dropped when his nanny fled with him after Saul’s household fell under attack. Long after Saul and Jonathan’s deaths, David went looking for someone from the descendants of Jonathan to keep a promise that he would forever show kindness to his family (see 1 Sam. 20:15). A former servant of Saul, named Ziba, told David about Mephibosheth, now grown but still crippled. In Second Samuel 9, when Mephibosheth was introduced to David, he felt completely inferior because of his condition. In Second Samuel 9:8, he responded to David by saying, “Who am I that you would pay attention to a dead dog like me?” It was obvious he had no sense of self-worth. The effects of the murder of his father and grandfather, in addition to his own lame condition, were very visible. Yet, David ignored this and gave Mephibosheth a permanent dinner pass to the king’s table! In one day, he went from worthlessness to royalty!

Everyone has experienced attacks on their self-worth, but as an heir of Christ you are given a permanent pass to the table of King Jesus. In spite of life’s blows, you have gone from worthlessness to royalty! It doesn’t matter how others view you; all Mephibosheth needed was the approval of the king. You have the approval of Christ the King today, and your self-worth has been restored!


Father, I receive my place at the table of King Jesus today. I am no longer
worthless, and all my self-worth has been restored. I am special, Lord, and
I have value. Hallelujah! Amen!
