Ai exploited the DISOBEDIENCE of Israel
7:6-9 Joshua blames God for the loss
7:10 Get up! Why do you lie thus on your face? This is not my problem, it’s your problem. God said stop crying!
7:1 But the Children of Israel committed a trespass regarding the accursed things for Achan the son of Carmi the son of Zabdi the son of the son of Zerah of the tribe of Judah took accursed things so the anger of the Lord burned against the Children of Israel
7:12 Neither will I be with you any more unless you destroy the accursed from among you
As a result, Israel went to battle alone on their own
Your everyday obedience to the Lord determines your effectiveness in the battle
Spiritual warfare is something you practice everyday Ephesians 6
Put on the belt of truth
Put on the breastplate of righteousness
Shod your feet with the preparation of the GOSPEL OF PEACE
Above all taking the SHIELD OF FAITH
Put on the Helmet of Salvation
Take up the sword of the spirit
