You have decided to follow Him no matter what.
This means you will see the Glory of God in a way that many do not experience. Because you have determined to have a consistent prayer life, you are able to recognize Him.
So, Soldier, this also means that you have the backbone to choose what is right and good in the face of mockery, taunting, and defiance. You must not make choices for the immediate result, but you must choose what is right according to God's Word. This applies to colleagues, spouses and children, as well as to outright enemies.
The one who is already defeated would love to intimidate you as much as possible. And he wants you to crave approval.
Take up The Cross and walk in The Light.
This happens in prayer. Do it now and do it aloud.
