Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:13
One of our key point of defeat for a child of God is always after the battle. We win the battle and lose the victory. It is a tendency for us to drop our guards, become over-confident, which gives the enemy a chance to get in and defeat us. We forget that thats the most dangerous point that requires the most vigilance.
It was after such colossal victory at Carmel that Elijah flee for his life and requested to die!
Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time. 3 And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. 4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers. – I Kings 19:2-4
