Just a Few Will Do

Joshua sent men to spy out Ai, and they reported back, “Do not let all the people go up, but let about two or three thousand men go up and attack Ai. Do not weary all the people there, for the people of Ai are few” (Joshua 7:3).
The three thousand fled before the men of Ai and Ai defeated them, killing thirty-six of them, causing the hearts of the Israelites to melt and become like water (Joshua 7:4, 5).
Something was wrong, but they did not know what it was, until Joshua and the elders petitioned the Lord, who revealed the problem.
When you think that you have done all that the Lord has taught and commanded, but success evades you, petition the Lord to find out the problem, and be ready for the answer.
