Fear seems so inconspicuous that we dont even notice it when its ruining our lives. Fear can slowly enter our hearts and minds and slows down our success. What i mean by that is, when you are afraid of something, you aren't able to do it, or if you do it, you are not confident or courageous about it therefore it doesn't yield those results of contentment, happiness and success. A fear of death can attack you, a fear of poverty can attack you, a fear of divorce, marriage, barreness, being succesful etc are all examples of the devils tricks on us so that we don't progress. However, the bible and God tells us that indeed " He has not given us the spirit of fear, but of a sound mind.." It means that when we are crippled in fear, we don't have a sound mind, and we don't act right.
