Jesus Recovers All
Bible Text: 1 Samuel 30 | Preacher: Pastor Steve | Series: David: Committed Living
1 Samuel 30:11-19 So David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away, and David rescued his two wives. And nothing of theirs was lacking, either small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything which they had taken from them;
David recovered all.
David recovered his GODLY VISION (focus)
1 Samuel 30:1-4 Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep.
Tough times will ALWAYS change you
Philippians 3:12-14 …but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus
David recovered his HEART (passion)
The world needs to see the church with passion and a genuine real practical beating heart FOR JESUS!
Believers in Jesus are often dry for the simple reason, they have lost their passion, love of God and they have substituted DOING for Him rather than BEING IN HIM.
Tofu Christians lack heart or passion.
There are some people who need to add
SPIRIT-FILLED flavor to their life
Jesus is not concerning himself with the WHAT we are all about but rather the WHO we are all about.
Revelation 2:1-11 I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil…you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.
SIMPLY LOVE ME!
The key to fruitfulness is abiding in His love
David recovered his JOY
David recovered all – everything he lost he recovered
Jesus recovered all for us – by way of the cross…
The performance trap believes that everything we have must be earned by:
Some of us have a difficult time believing we are loved and accepted and forgiven even after failure, imperfection, and mistakes
Everyone has a problem, is a problem or has to
live with a problem
For those who are weary, exhausted and overwhelmed and there is REST at Brook Besor
The Brook of JOY and REFRESHING:
1 Samuel 30:21 Now David came to the two hundred men who had been so weary that they could not follow David, whom they also had made to stay at the Brook Besor…
Brook Besor is God stepping in and telling us we are taking a time-out because we need rest!
1 Samuel 30:22 Then all the wicked and worthless men of those who went with David answered and said, Because they did not go with us, we will not give them any of the spoil that we have recovered, except for every man’s wife and children, that they may lead them away and depart.
There are some who will want to deny us the blessing and grace from God BUT God has an abundance of GRACE AND BLESSING!
1 Samuel 30:23 But David said, My brethren, you shall not do so with what the LORD has given us, who has preserved us and delivered into our hand the troop that came against us. For who will heed you in this matter? But as his part is who goes down to the battle, so shall his part be who stays by the supplies; they shall share alike. So it was, from that day forward; he made it a statute and an ordinance for Israel to this day.
Matthew 3:11 He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
What does the Holy Spirit fire do IN and FOR us?
