Yes, you must be prepared to fail before you ever succeed. For example, to forgive others who offend you could sound way off at times, but forgiveness is the secret of absolute freedom. When you forgive others, you start to reign in the realm of faith. The spirit of fear will disappear as it intends to break your mind and destroy your defences. The field of faith will be your defence as you will disarm your alarm in the day of battle and bring terror to all your enemies on their deathbed. Although they plan to disarm you with dread, you make their weapon disappear, and you have no doubt but faith in God Almighty! God is with you, my dear friends!
