Do you spend your life trying to please everybody? Whose approval are you seeking – other’s or God’s? At times we may find ourselves doing something for the approval of someone. Weather it be your best friend, family member, or your spouse, seeking approval from anyone other than God will leave you confused.
“Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or a I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ”
– Galatians 1:10 (NIV)
“On the contrary, we speak as men approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please men, but God, who tests our hearts.”
– 1 Thessalonians 2:4 (NIV)
Now, don’t be confused, asking advice from others is fine. However when it comes to pleasing others and seeking approval from others, make sure God is always first priority, he keeps on track.
When we seek God approval not only do we get set upon the correct path, we attain guidance, we also get the correct answer. Only God knows the answer to our true desires, no one else! Instead of seeking confirmation from any of the listed above, try asking God first, allow God the chance to show you the way that He desires. Pray for the courage to seek God’s approval above anyone else’s.
God will always put you on the correct path, His path, which ultimately leads to His kingdom.
Peace, Love, Happiness
