In Judges 6 Israel defeated a very formidable foe, Jericho.
Immediately following Jericho, Israel moved on to Ai and sent out spies to survey their forces. The spies returned and said that Ai’s forces were relatively minimal and that they only needed to send out 2,000 – 3,000 troops to take the city; no big deal.
Joshua errored on the side of caution and sent 3,000 troops to take Ai.
Israel ended up running in retreat and lost 36 men as they were being chased by the soldiers of Ai.
What went wrong? Why did they lose such an easy victory? Did the scout / spies miscalculate the enemy’s strength?
No. Israel had to learn another very critical lesson that we need to learn today if we are going to defeat our enemies here in America.
