Psalm 25:1, John 14:27

In the life of a Christian, there is a constant conflict for his or her soul. The enemy is doing everything in his power to try to discourage God's people because he knows that he has already lost the battle. He is a defeated foe, so he looks to make the life of the believer one of misery. In the area of the soul, the Christian mind is in the process of being renewed, but it is not yet fully made new like his spirit is.

Look at how the psalmist put it:
Psalm 25:1 A Psalm of David. To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. 2 O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me. (NKJV)

Listen, Jesus has given us the key to living a victorious life and not allowing the enemy to triumph over us.
