Now I don't agree with everything that I read from the Jewish sages or even from the Jewish Internet, but I must admit that I like the gist of this short comment. I believe there is a personal enemy and everything that happens is not from God. But as long as there is breath, there is another chance. And God does indeed not have failures. Things do appear worse before getting better, many times because of that enemy. And lastly when we fall, since God has no failures; we can rise higher than before in, with, and through God.
There’s no such thing as defeat. There’s always another chance. To believe in defeat is to believe that there is something, a certain point in time that did not come from Above. Know that God doesn't have failures. If things appear to worsen, it is only as part of them getting better. We only fall down in order to bounce back even higher.
