Pursue – Overtake – Rescue
In 1 Sam. 30:1-2, Israel’s enemy the Amalekites had raided the town of Ziklag.
During the raid They burned the town to the ground and took away captive not only the wives of David and his men, but also the children.
When David and his men arrived they found their loved ones had been taken prisoner.
Upon this discovery King David went to speak to Abiathar the priest. He needed to know through the man of God what the will of the Lord was in this situation.
To David's inquiry Abiathar responded
1 Sam 30:8
"Pursue, for you shall surely overtake and shall surely rescue."
