Excerpt from Chapter 3 of “Power Up for the God Challenge: The Battle to Receive Your Real Man”Published September 9, 2017
The Coward lies because he is afraid to stand up and be a man. He is not capable of doing what he says, and he fills his lady’s heart and ears with promises that he has no intention of keeping. The Coward wants to make his woman believe that he is a strong and take-charge man, but really, he lacks the courage to be the man he is called to be and professes to be. Unbeknownst to his woman, one of his main characteristics is fear but will never share that with her or anyone else because of his cowardice. Merriam-Webster4 defines fear as “a painful emotion or passion excited by the expectation of evil, or the apprehension of impending danger; apprehension; anxiety; solicitude; alarm; dread. Fear is an uneasiness of the mind, upon the thought of future evil likely to befall us” (my emphasis). This definition is full of adversarial content and is contrary to everything that God is and that He desires for you: evil, the expectation of evil, and uneasiness of the mind. The devil is evil and desires for you to be uneasy and to experience the worst. Our Father, in contrast hand, longs for you to experience peace and joy, which are diametric to the fear that weighs down the Coward.
