Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 30:8

30:8 He answered - Before, God answered more slowly and gradually, chap.#23:11|,12, but now he answers speedily, and fully at once, because the business required haste. So gracious is our God, that he considers even the degree of our necessities, and accommodates himself to them.

Definately there is nothing we enquire from God that He can not do,David enquire from God and was led to pursue,he act with faith and by His grace he recovered All.I also require obedience to the word of God.(1sam.23:2,4)

 

Pastor Godwin .N.Harrison.'s comment on 2013-10-18 09:39:21:

We have a God that knows all our needs and challanges,both physically and spiritually.He wants us to call upon Him in the times of trouble,and seek in order to find(recover),(Jer 33:3;Math 7:7).David enquired,he recieved an answer,and authority to pursuit,the grace to overtake,and the divine favour to recover all.This time,the Lord God will give you the power to pursuit,special grace to overtake,and the divine favour to recover all your stollen blessings,and restore unto you the years that the locust hath eaten,in the name of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ;Amen!.

 

Samuel's comment on 2013-10-16 03:07:40:

Until you inquire, you cannot recover! Until you pursue, you cannot recover! Until you overtake, you cannot recover! God's plan for you in 2013 is for you, your family, ministry, business, career,etc, to recover All-not just 30% or 90%, but All and not Nearly All, But All. Esther 8:2 . And the King took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. Prayer and fasting changes situation. Always look unto God. Jeremiah33:3. Call to me, and I will answer you; I will tell you wonderful and marvellous things that you know nothing about.

Learn to seek God when making decisions even in cases that seem obvious to us. God's guidance is the best.

 

Jude Nwosu's comment on 2012-12-14 01:29:09:

David and his men wept, weeping cannot bring them back. We need to seek God, Matthew 7:7. Seek and you shall find, Isaiah 9:6 says He is Wonderful Counselor, He knows all things. Anytime we are in problem the only person to call is God, not to care for nothing, Psalm 50:15. The bible says the moment David enquired from the Lord, God gave him the answer.
