“Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.”
We all know that fear comes many ways and perceived many ways, however fear is fear. “Fear is a powerful enemy of our faith and a strong deterrent to the believer’s peace of mind.” Fear of ANYTHING can rob us of our trust in God and it also pushes God further back into our beings rather than at the forefront where he belongs. Personally I sometimes fear displeasing people, I am always out to please people, and make sure there always satisfied. Not knowing, this actually put me in bondage to these people, taking away my realization of God’s presence in my life. Its okay to want to please people, just as long as its God who you first give your attention to. The more we put our focus and even fear on God, the closer you become to Him. Ask Him to drive inappropriate fear from your heart and to help you fear only Him. God’s life can flow through you to others and allow other people to see and witness God in you, this is true ABUNDANT life! FEAR-LESS!
