Fear of man disables. 11.1.11

The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in God protects you from that. (Proverbs 29:25 MSG)

Fearing people is a dangerous trap,

but trusting the Lord means safety. (Proverbs 29:25 NLT)

Fear of man…the sin of well intentioned nice people, has the potential to do huge, dangerous damage. Fear of man completely disables a man rendering him ineffective in accomplishing Gods purposes for he has no solid foundation from which to build a faithful life. Man’s opinion waivers and is different for each individual, so aligning with one means not aligning with another, and if we try to align with all we are proving to be a weak, wavering man, molding ourselves to the person of the moment. Gods opinion is solid rock…unwavering and unchanging…man should reflect this stability in life, living according to principals and truth. Action. My sons, nothing is more sickening than a weak, wavering man who tries to be all things to all people. Desire to be a strong, truth centered man…one who esteems Gods opinion above man’s…communicating in life with loving, authentic, principle centered speech. True authentic, loving speech is accurate, effective and respected.
