Thought For Today – December 17

Fear Not Man!

“The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe. Many seek the ruler's favor; but every man's judgment cometh from the Lord.” Proverbs 29: 25, 26. Some of us have more fear and regard for man than we do for God. This is what hinders us as Christians from taking the stand that we ought to take for godliness and morality in our home, our communities, and our nation.

Some of us are more concerned that we will be “politically correct” and appealing to men than that we will be grieving the Holy Spirit when we do not speak up against all that we know to be contrary to the laws and commandments of God. Some of us have more regard for the creature than we have for the creator. Some of us would not do some of the things that we know is contrary to the perfect will of God if it were not for the fact that we do not want people to think that we have gone off the ”deep end” and become fanatics and “odd balls”.

The fear of man is bondage and slavery. Obedience to God and trust in him is true freedom. Why should we care what men do to us, or think about us if we have the assurance that we can stand alone in our closet and be justified before God? The fear of man keeps us from giving our all to God, or becoming “fanatics”, if you prefer. The fear of man keeps us from taking a firm stand against immorality, and prevents us from publicly declaring that this is wrong, and that is right, according to the Word of God. The fear of man keeps us from putting God first in all our thoughts and deeds.

“The fear of man bringeth a snare; but whoso putteth his trust in The Lord shall be safe.” Proverbs 29: 25.

Peter said by inspiration of the Holy Spirit: “We must obey God rather than men.”

Jesus said: “ Fear not him who can destroy the body, but fear him who has the power to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

“Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?” Isaiah 2: 22.

We Christians ought to covenant with God and with each other that we will not fear men, but we will fear and obey God in all things regardless of what ungodly men may say or think. Lets preserve ourselves, our homes, our communities, our churches, and our nation from the so called “politically correct” philosophies of ungodly men.

 Many struggle with the fear of man, even as I once did.   God was not pleased with this and taught me the fear of the Lord, which has forever changed me.  Your article is so needed in today's war on Christians and that fear of man is indeed a snare.
