Read PSalm 56-57. David decided to put his trust in God when people were attacking him. He asks, What can man do to me? What a declaration of confidence! What a show of true faith and freedom from the fear of man.
Proverbs 29:25 says, The fear of man brings a snare. God wants us to place our trust in Him and fear Him. Not be afraid of Him, but have a healthy respect, esteem, and honor for Him. When the Lord holds this place in our hearts, we do not have to fear any other man.
Father, when I am afraid of others or their opinions of me, I choose to trust in You. I fear, esteem, and honor You above any other. Thank You for peace and freedom from fear of man today. In the name of Jesus, amen.READ MORE DEVOTIONAL
