Soldier, freedom is the result of agreeing with God.
That agreement takes place in the most private of moments and is the result of thoughts that are chosen.
So many are passive and unaware of what is whirling around in the mind. In the midst of life's strangest and strongest storms, there has to be the deliberate choosing to take hold and dwell on what He has said.
You will think about what you take in.
You must memorize, think about, pray about, and sing about what He has said.
Is there anything else? Cling to what is real and what is eternal. Deliberately. Affirmatively. Walk on the water.
Make this resolve in prayer.
