I was about to do personal devotions this morning when I went through the room and the TV was on and I saw T.D. Jakes, Potter's House- he was speaking of Ziklag (city) and David (1Samuel)
When David returned from victory, but at a cost , the women and children had been captured and taken away.
David's men were despondent,they were disheartened ,they were rising up against David and questioning
his leadership, they were loosing faith in their leader.
David fell on his knees and enquired of the Lord, David asked should I pursue the captors? He (Lord) answered and said ,"Pursue and you shall recover All" (1 Samuel 30:8)
Then David ENCOURAGED himself!
Are you there? Pursue and Recover All- Encourage Yourself!
