“We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed” (2 Cor 4:8-9).

For the believer, failure is never final. David and Samson and Gideon and Thomas and Peter—even Lot (2 Pet 2:7)—tell us that. Skirmishes lost, but the victory already won—and glory awaits!
