“And David said, is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake? 2 Samuel 9:1
All of man’s efforts, qualification and status in the society can never bring him to a place of divine fulfillment in life. There is something that is beyond man’s effort. It is the kindness of God.
God is extremely kind and incredibly loving. This kindness is freely given to every child of God through Christ Jesus
“But after that the kindness and love of God our saviour toward man appeared (Titus 3:4)
The greatest demonstration of kindness is Jesus Christ laying down His precious life for humanity. Although we deserved to be condemned, God is His Kindness saved us (Titus 3:5). Throughout the entire history of mankind, God has always demonstrated His kindness to man. Every man needs the kindness of God to excel in life.
“So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showth mercy” Rom.9:16 From our opening scripture, David demonstrated God’s kindness when he remembered a long term promise he made to his friend Jonathan. He promised not only to show kindness to Jonathan but also to any of his household “And thou shalt not only while yet I live show me the kindness of the Lord that I die not; but also thou shalt not cut off thy kindness from my house for ever, no not when the Lord hath cut off the enemies of David everyone from the face of the earth” 1 Sam.20:14-15
The kindness that David showed to Mephiboshet is a type of God’s kindness towards us. Because Christ went to the cross to die for us. He can also demonstrate His kindness towards us when we learn to trust Him. The kindness of a man can make his fellow man desirable but what makes a man attractive wherever he goes despite his flaws is the kindness of God upon his life which causes the right people to be drawn to him.
God’s kindness does not consider where you’re coming from or your capabilities; it is blind in its operation because it is propelled by the supernatural love of God for mankind. The kindness of God is not a respecter of persons, race or colour. Mephibosheth was a most unlikly candidate and had nothing in him to inherit the kindness; he found himself sitting on the same table with the king. I prophesy to you that by the kindness of God working in you this week, you shall be elevated above your equals in Jesus Name.
A lot of Christians however fail to recognize the operation of the kindness of God in their lives, no wonder they cannot show kindness to others. No one wants to have a friend that is not kindhearted. God uses His kindness to pull you to Him; therefore when you show kindness to others, it causes them to be drawn to you and to the God you profess. When God makes up his mind to show you His merciful kindness. The Holy Spirit goes to work to bring to pass every of your expectations. I declare to you that by the operation of the kindness of God, kingdoms shall be divided for your sake. May you continue to enjoy the kindness of God in Jesus Name.
