Joshua 8:1 “And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go up to Ai: see, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his city, and his land:”

Joshua and Israel were fresh from a shocking defeat to Ai, yet God assured them of victory after Achan’s trespass was purged off them.

One of the weapons of the devil is to make you think you can never rise when you fall. Defeats are not fullstops, they are reasons to hold firmer to God. You will end a victor.

Talk to God: Father, help me to walk closer with you even in the face of defeat in Jesus name, amen.
