“And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all. ” – I Samuel 30:8

If all you do when you are in a difficult situation is weep, nothing will change. It is alright to cry sometimes, but please keep in mind that after the tears, you must dust yourself up and do something about your situation. When David suffered a difficult attack from his enemies the Amalekites and lost his wives, children, and valuable property, he had to get up and do something. Restoration doesn’t just happen. There are keys that need to be employed in order to fully enjoy the benefits of restoration in our lives. Let’s learn about some of these keys from David’s own life. First, he chose to stay focused on the real issue so as not to be distracted. Secondly, he encouraged himself in the Lord; third, he sought to receive clear instructions from God. And finally, he obeyed the instructions he received and pursued his enemies until he recovered everything they stole. If you believe God for restoration, follow David’s example, and take back all that belongs to you in God.
