What’s your greatest fear?
That’s a question that we often hear, and when we do, we tend to respond to answers like snakes, spiders, or the dark. These are valid fears, but if we’re honest we’ll admit that fear also targets us on a much deeper level—one that torments the core of who we are and how we live.
Have you ever thought about how fear targets us? It uses deception to cause us to believe that challenging situations are more significant than they are and that we are smaller inside than we are. Fear functions as a conman in our lives, using ruses to fool us into falling for deceptions that tell us that we’re inadequate, isolated, or unlovable. The Change-Up: Switching Our Approach to Fear looks at how we’re not defenseless against these cons. God’s love provides everything we need to pull the plug and change the narrative on the false ideas of fear.
Now, we’re the ones pulling the change-up as we learn how to identify and breakthrough fear’s games by trusting God’s love to counter and conquer each one.
