All of us struggle with feelings of defeat at times. The way gets too hard. Too many challenges are in front of us or we feel like we have failed in some way.
It isn't God's desire for us to remain in this state of mind. Scripture has many stories of people who failed or who felt like failures, but God had a different view of them. One of the classic pictures of our perspective on things colliding with God's is when Gideon was hiding in a winepress threshing wheat, because his people felt so scared of and defeated by the Midianites.
The angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon and said, "Hello, mighty warrior." Gideon, in his own eyes, was no mighty warrior. He was a hiding out coward at that moment. But, God called him out of it and into the one he would become with God's aid. God can and will do the same for us.
