At a place called Ebenezer, Israel lost 34,000 men and their faith in God. After 20 years of misery, they faced the same battlefield and the same enemy. But this time they had victory. Did God want them defeated the first time? No! And God never meant for YOU to lose either!
GOD NEVER MEANT FOR YOU TO LOSE
1 Sam 7:2-13
4:1Now Israel went out to battle against the Philistines, and encamped beside Ebenezer. 2 Israel was defeated by the Philistines, who killed about four thousand men. [Israel brought the Ark of the Covenant to the battle.]
