“So David inquired of the LORD, saying,“Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”” (1 Samuel 30:8, NKJV)
What have you lost during your lifetime? Well, God wants to empower you to recover all because today is your day. Remember in a past entry I wrote about being redeemed and one of the meanings which the words redeemed and recover share is the idea of something being rescued. I like this because it brings to my mind the image of a superhero coming on the scene to save you from trouble. That makes Paul’s declaration to the Galatians more exciting because he told them, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”) (Galatians 3:13)" So Jesus Christ rescued us from the effects of the curse of sickness, from the curse of poverty and from the curse of spiritual death.
What was his purpose in doing this? So “that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith(Galatians 3:14.)" Within the blessing of Abraham is the ability to experience the justice of our God. I believe that’s why in describing the justice of God Isaiah says, “Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs. “For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their work in truth, And will make with them an everlasting covenant (Isaiah 61:7-8)." God loves justice that’s why you can expect for divine recovery to erase the pain of your suffering and to bring with it “double honor.” You need to let this though take you over and begin to decree to yourself, “Today is my day of justice and I shall recover all that has been stolen from me. According to Proverbs 6:31 the thief has been caught and now he must repay me seven times what has been taken from my life.”
