One of the first snares against humankind is an emotion that we all know all too well. It’s fear. In the beginning, fear of missing out (commonly referred to as FOMO) played a part in convincing the first couple to take Satan’s bait. Then, fear that God is mad caused them to hide out from the Creator – And fear affects us in similar ways today. It influences certain actions or paralyzes us into inaction.If you’ve followed my story, you know how much fear controlled my life—all the way back to potty training. It influenced me to quit my first year of preschool and caused my elementary teachers to think I had a reading problem. It held me back in athletics and hindered my relationships.Thankfully, I’m a different person today. But only because God revealed to me a dirty secret about fear that the devil doesn’t want us to know. And it’s this: fear is often a figment of your imagination.
