Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
I must admit that I know this verse very well but have a problem putting it into practice. I know that God the Lord is my helper. I know that I do not need to fear men or what they can do to me, but I, often, do!
Do you have this problem as well? I want to remind you that only God can determine my eternal destiny. I want to remind you that men may cause us temporary problems but they can never cause us eternal problems.
I want to stop letting Satan play such games with me. He often makes me consider what people might think about even the right things that I am doing. I get thoughts about how people might be disappointed in me instead of considering that God would be pleased.
I am the kind of person that wants people to like me, to be pleased with me, to be proud of me! That can be a real problem. It often causes me to seek men’s approval far more than I should. I should be considering the Lord and what He wants but I waste my life and my time worried about what people think.
I hope you get victory over this problem as I work at getting it also!
