(Melissa G.) How do we deal with DDF (Due Diligence Fear)? Here are some questions to ask when fear strikes, or we aren’t sure if it is fear or wisdom: What do I need to see about this? What’s at the root of this? What do I need to know about this? Is there an element of this that needs to be dealt with or stopped thru prayer, or is this connected to a root that needs to be pulled out? Is this intercession for someone else? These kind of questions get answered because they are not the questions of a victim, they are questions of an overcomer. A fear-driven question already has an answer in mind and can’t hear anything but that. A wise question is open to hear truth. Here’s another question to keep on hand, is this something in the atmosphere that I need to be aware of? I experienced this one recently while in worship. A headache hit me between the eyes out of no where. Later I came to realize it was an atmospheric war over what was going on that night. When identified the headache left immediately!
