Boldness to pursue

Here are the main points from Sunday (1/4/09)

Hebrews 10:19-25, 1 Samuel 30:1-10, 17-20.

4 principles:

1. David believed the Word God gave him to pursue.

2. David believed that God had and God would make a way for his pursuit.
  • The enemy were slowed down because of the spoils.
  • David had nothing to slow him down. Sometimes we need to be stripped off everything so that we can pursue at full speed!!
  • God sent others to David to come in agreement. Matt 18:19,20 Deuteronomy. 32:30
3. David believed that he would find what he was looking for.
  • A warrior-king always presupposes/speaks/declares that victory will be his!!
  • Jesus said count the cost and see if you will win!
  • Psalm 34:13-14.
  • Pursue the peace of God
  • Pursue Godly conversation.
  • Pursue good works. Do the right thing.
4. David believed he had the strength to pursue the enemy.
  • He knew God would keep his word!
  • Verse 23
