Lost a battle, but won the war

The true Christian life is a war, consisting of many battles, one after the other. If you happen to lose one battle, or even several battles, it doesn’t mean you’ve lost the war. The war ain’t over until God declares it over. And the Commander of the Lord’s Army doesn’t discard His wounded soldiers who truly repent and trust in Him. He heals them and makes them even stronger to stand immovable in the next battle (see Ephesians 6).
