Joshua 8:7 KJV
Then ye shall rise up from the ambush, and seize upon the city: for the Lord your God will deliver it into your hand.
A ‘comeback win’ is so sweeeeet, especially when you are on the winning side. In one memorable match I watched in 2004/05 Arsenal was trailing Middlesbrough by 1 – 3 at the half.
T. Henry got a hatrick and Dennis Bergkamp got a another to seal off a 5-3 win. I can still remember how jubilant I was that day, taunting my Man United n Chelsea room mates.
I believe this was the mood in the camp of the Israelites when they went back to defeat the people of Ai.
It is important to note that Joshua used a strategy borne out of their initial defeat to triumph this second time.
Developing a winning strategy from a previously failed attempt is a godly and wise move.
God has a message for every one of his children in any bad situation and we need to be alert enough to notice the learnings and use them to our advantage.
Have a blessed weekend.
