Yes, it is a formidable enemy and it can also be an important weapon in the hands of the devil to keep Christians unproductive. The devil understands the threat a productive Christian can pose to his kingdom, so he uses this weapon to put unsuspecting Christians in check! More
“The child is born with no fears, except those of falling and loud noises. All other fears have to be taught to the child as he or she grows up. The two major fear we all develop are the fear of failure or loss and the fear of criticism or rejection. We begin to learn the fear of failure if we are continually criticised and punished when we try something new or different. We soon begin to believe that we are too small, too weak, in-competent, inadequate, and incapable of doing anything new or different. We express this feeling with the words, “I can't, I can't, I can't”. Whenever we think about doing something new or challenging, we automatically respond with feelings of fear, trembling, and a churning stomach. The fear of failure is the primary reason for failure in adult life...we sell ourselves short. We quit before we even try the first time. Instead of using our amazing minds to figure out how to get what we want, we use our reasoning ability to create reasons why we can't, and why the things we want are not possible for us” --- This interesting quote was taken from Brian Tracy's book, 'Change Your Thinking, Change Your life'.
