Fear is an emotion that cripples your progress. It robs you of the ability to move forward and walk in your purpose. It replaces your faith and courage and puts you in bondage.
Fear of rejection leads you to believe you will be passed over or not chosen. This belief can take root and hinder progress because you become afraid of not measuring up.
Fear of failure takes hold when we focus on who WE are and not on who HE is. We buy into Satan’s lies as truth and then God’s power to help us becomes irrelevant.
Fear of the unknown creeps in as we try to see and figure everything out before it has manifested. Seeing beyond where we are at the present moment can be scary.
Fear of people can also hinder our progress. Whenever we put others’ needs above our own to our detriment, we have crossed over into a position where we can be easily controlled or manipulated. That positions us for disaster.
If you are having trouble moving forward, is fear holding you back?
What fear do you need to identify and conquer?
