The human soul from birth is thrown directly into battle. From the moment you are born until the moment of your death, there is war. We are three persons in one, spirit, soul, and flesh. So, then it is natural for us to fight on three fronts, spirit, soul, and flesh. We rebuke devils, we are torn between everlasting eternities, and fight the desires of our heart that try to consume our bodies. After fighting for so long, we lose focus on the real battles in our life’s journey and end up fighting pointless proxy wars that bring no victory to the kingdom of heaven. We easily forget that we worship the God of Victory! Deuteronomy 20:4 – “For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.” The God of Victory has a name, and his name is Jesus Christ! So why then if we serve the God of victory can we taste defeat so many times in our passage on Earth? This is because true victory is not seen in the natural but is experienced in the supernatural. We have only one expectation, to stop delaying the defeat of our enemies within ourselves, this is known as the prolonged war.
