Let’s Take it all Back!!!
This month we embark on an exciting journey to recover all that the enemy has stolen from us. Based off of the text in 1 Samuel 30, we see David and his men in pursuit of their wives and children that had been stolen by the Amelekite Raiders. Upon seeing the devastation, David’s men thought to stone him and David had to encourage himself in the Lord. David then prayed and had this discourse with God, “8 Then David asked the Lord, “Should I chase after this band of raiders? Will I catch them? And the Lord told him, “Yes, go after them. You will surely recover everything that was taken from you!””
So here we are preparing to chase and recover. There are four phases of this recovery that we will examine:
- Prepare- Assess what is lost, Cry and deal with emotions and Pray
- Position- Figure out who needs to fight with you and who needs to stay behind
- Pursue- RUSH the enemy with reckless abandon, be prepared to fight!
- Possess- What to do once we recover
This is an exciting time at Word of Life, I personally invite you to come and experience what God is doing right here with us!!
