Recovering Your Losses
From the archives of Oral Roberts – Second of two parts
The second supernatural way to recover your loses is to encourage yourself in the Lord. David turned to God for strength (I Samuel 30:6). You can’t handle discouragement and loss alone. Psalm 27:14 says, Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart.
The third supernatural way to recover your losses is to get someone to go into a prayer of agreement with you. David found an army of 600 men who were willing to go into agreement with him to defeat the enemy and recover all that had been stolen (I Samuel 30:18–19).
A prayer of agreement is not to be taken lightly. It means finding someone who understands that all of life is spiritually based, someone who will agree with you in prayer according to Matthew 18:19 and not come out of that agreement until God answers.
The fourth supernatural way to recover your losses is to fight until you win. First Timothy 6:12 NKJV says, Fight the good fight of faith. No one is going to fight your battle for you. You’re going to have to fight it. And it’s not easy. Expect the devil to hate you and fight you constantly because what you have as a believer is so great. Realize that you’re in spiritual warfare and that satan will do everything in his power to put you down. But as you stand in faith, you win! The Bible says, David recovered all (I Samuel 30:19)!
