How This ‘Fear of Missing Out’ Can Drive Us Straight to Holy Spirit’s Supernatural Power

by | Aug 12, 2021 | Greenelines

Have you experienced FOMO, the fear of missing out?

We tend to think of it as something suffered by the insecure—a fear of missing out on a cultural trend or experience. “Not for believers,” we say. But when FOMO drives us to experience more of the Holy Spirit, it becomes a positive for now and for eternity.

That’s exactly what happened to author Jeannie Cunnion, she tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “I began to realize that there are just so many of us who don’t know all that the Holy Spirit is intended to do for us and in us and through us,” she says. “And I realized I had been missing out.”

“Like the FOMO that we talk about so often in society, the fear of missing out, it’s really about, ‘Don’t miss out on this incredible gift that God has already deposited inside of you,” she says. “Don’t miss out on this gift you’ve already received if you’ve put your trust in Jesus. Don’t miss out on the benefits.”

Cunnion’s new book, Don’t Miss Out: Daring to Believe Life Is Better With the Holy Spirit (Bethany House) brings together 30 incredible benefits of the Holy Spirit to help readers experience Him in a deeper, richer way.

Christians tend to neglect the Holy Spirit, Cunnion says. “It’s very natural to start the day a certain way and kind of take off running in your own strength and at your own pace. And one of the most delightful things within writing Don’t Miss Out has been just this sweet awareness of His presence with me throughout the day. And what’s so beautiful about that is this gift, this experience, is for every Christian.”

Dont Miss OutBut wait, there’s more—when it comes to the Holy Spirit’s intimate presence. “I truly believe it really is the key to living that free, abundant, thriving Christian life that Jesus came and died and rose again to give us,” Cunnion says. “He told us in John Chapter 16 that it is better for us that He go back to the Father so that the Holy Spirit would come. It just blows my mind to think that my whole Christian life, I just kind of skimmed right over that passage. I never really sat with the significance of what Jesus said there—that it’s to our advantage, that it’s for our benefit that He go back to the Father, so that the Holy Spirit would come. … We’re not dependent on physical presence, but now His Spirit takes up residence inside of us and gives us everything we need.”
