Scripture: Psalm 143:12
In Psalm 143:12, we find King David in a place where he has to pray judgment over someone that he betrayed first. But because he used the weed-eater, he received God’s mercy and found it in his heart to pray this prayer. And he got a complete and total victory. Psalm 143:12 says, “In Your mercy cut off my enemies, And destroy all those who afflict my soul; For I am Your servant.” David asked God to cut off the man who had been his best friend, Ahithophel, the chief counselor in all of Israel. Ahithophel was Bathsheba’s grandfather. David’s sin with Bathsheba betrayed Ahithophel. David repented and recovered through Sure Mercy! He took the weed-eater, the covenant of Sure Mercy, and God forgave him. Because God forgave him, he could now pray over the betrayal of Ahithophel. And God honored it. God gave him victory, God gave him his nation back, God gave him Jerusalem back, God destroyed Absalom, Ahithophel and everyone who was part of the rebellion. The covenant of Sure Mercy works. It was given to King David and promised to us. It worked well for King David and it works for us as well! The question is, are we willing to take that covenant and walk in it? David had to take the weed-eater of that covenant and weed the soil of his heart. He did it and it gave him the confidence to put the judicial word in his mouth and gain utter and total victory. That is what Jesus made possible for you and I. The question is, will we take it and run with it? It is time we did!
