The Lord is continually speaking to me about being RELENTLESS. So let’s look into being relentless and what God is saying. I believe God is saying to us at this time, “PURSUE AND OVERTAKE.”
It is time to be RELENTLESS in our pursuit of God and in the things of God and it is time to stop running from the devil and allowing him to steal from you and take up camp in your life.
Relentless means—determined, ferocious, fierce, unstoppable, unbending, stop at nothing, unflinching. It is time to be relentless in our pursuit of God, overtaking enemy forces, recover and advance in the things God has planned for each of us to recover the things the devil has stolen from us.
I Samuel 30:8 (KJV) “And David required at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them? And He answered him, pursue: for thou shall overtake them, and without fail recover.
I Samuel 30:18 (KJV) “And David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away: and David rescued his two wives.”
Pursue–to go or proceed after, to follow with a view to overtake, to chase, to seek
Overtake—to take by surprise, to capture, to catch up with and pass, to befall someone suddenly or unexpected.
Recover— to get back or regain, to reclaim, to reclaim from a bad state, to get or regain that which was lost.
First and foremost, we need to be RELENTLESS in our pursuit of GOD!!!! We need to seek Him and spend time with Him.
David was a man after God's heart.
Acts 13:22 (NKJV) “And when He had removed him, He raised up for David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.’”
I believe David was sold out to God. He wasn't perfect, but he pursued God. Look at the results of what God told him to do and what happened. He pursued and overtook. He had victory, he recovered.
I Samuel 17:45-48 (NIV) David said to the Philistines, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defiled. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give all of you into our hands.”
As the Philistines moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. David RAN towards the giant, he didn't wait, he said, ''I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty.” He said, “THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD WILL DELIVER YOU INTO MY HANDS.”
He defeated the giant, he didn't stand there and take it. He first DECLARED victory, then he RAN at the giant and OVERTOOK him, he DEFEATED him. He declared it, he pursued the giant, he ran at him, he overtook him, he recovered what the giant had tried to take.
It is time Sons and Daughters of God; the tables have turned. It is time we stop running and allowing the enemy into our camp, our land. It is time we pursue, overtake and recover what he has stolen. It is time we WAKE up and PURSUE!!!!
Isaiah 60:1 (NIV) “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you”
God is saying to you today, “IT IS TIME. YOU WERE CREATED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. PURSUE, OVERTAKE AND RECOVER, I AM WITH YOU. YOU WILL SURELY OVERTAKE AND RECOVER.”
God is saying to you, “WATERS ARE BREAKING FORTH IN YOUR WILDERNESS AND STREAMS IN YOUR DESERT. THIS IS YOUR YEAR OF RECOVERY. THIS IS YOUR YEAR OF RESTORATION.”
Remember first and foremost PURSUE GOD!!! RELENTLESSLY!!!! But know this, God is saying, “This is your year of recovery and restoration. I am with you. You will overtake and recover.”
Do as David did, run at the giant with your mouth open declaring victory, declaring what God says. Don't run at your giant with your mouth shut. Speak to that mountain.
