The Fear Of Man
“The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.”
Just like we learnt yesterday, if you want to fulfill destiny you must be free from the desire to please people. Also, you must be free from the fear of man. Nothing is as deadly as the fear of man, it will keep you in bondage.
Our opening scripture reveals that the fear of man brings a snare. The Message Bible puts it this way, “The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in God protects you from that.” Stop focusing on human opinion, focus on what God has called you to do.
The Good News Translation puts it this way, “It is dangerous to be concerned with what others think of you, but if you trust the Lord, you are safe.” I want you to know that if you are following God’s vision for your life, human opinion doesn’t matter.
The New Living Translation puts it this way, “Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting
the Lord means safety.”
Please read 1 Chronicles 12:38 and ask God to give you a perfect heart to do His will.
