No Loss

Nothing Missing

30th May 2021

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 30: 1-20


“And there was nothing lacking to them, neither small nor great, neither sons nor daughters, neither spoil, nor any thing that they had taken to them: David recovered all.” (1 Samuel 30: 19)

Our Focal Scripture gives details of David’s recovery as he fought the Amalekites that came against him. David recovered all that he lost; he recovered his wives; he recovered his children; he recovered his possessions; his men also recovered all that they lost. It may have seemed that the loss of David and his men would be permanent, but it wasn’t. In a matter of time, they took back all that the enemy stole from them.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: for everything the enemy took from you, you will recover all. You will recover all that the enemy took from your family; you will recover all that he took from your health; you will recover all that he took from your finances; you will recover all that the enemy took from your career, business, ministry, academics, vocation, etc; you will recover every lost ground and lost territory the enemy pushed you out from.

Notice that they did not only recover what they lost. They also took spoils from their enemies. They recovered more than what they lost. They took back what they lost, and they also took what belonged to their enemies. Get set: you will not only recover whatever it is that you lost; you will also recover what you never even lost. You will possess new grounds that were never yours before. You will recover more than the enemy took.

When the enemies thought they came to deplete David and his men, they had no idea that God would turn it around and cause David and his men to increase instead. The enemy meant it for evil, but God turned it around for David’s good. Hear me as I hear the Lord: God is turning around every plot of the enemy against you to work for your good. The enemy may have hurt you, but you are coming out on a higher level.

Ask God to turn the tables on the enemy. Ask God to cause you to recover more than what you lost.


I recover more than what I lost; every loss will lead to my increase, in Jesus’ name!
