So often too much time is spent on winning the favor of mankind. As if any of us should even think that we must win the approval of another mortal being just like us. GOD let’s us know all throughout His Word that we shouldn’t even entertain seeking the approval of mankind, especially when He alone is The One who has, is and always will be our only source of obtaining a perfected state of being.
“For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.”
Galatians 1:10 KJV
Admittedly, it took me a while to see Scriptures like this in their proper perspective and then it was another thing to apply them to my every day thinking. If allowed to do so, some would have us to believe that a part of being humble, is being walked over, trampled on, tossed to the side, tucked in a nice neat corner and forgotten about. But, when GOD thoroughly furnishes you from the inside out, equips you with His divine power and sets you on a course for His glory, for His use and for His purpose for your life, why would you allow anyone to stop you? Let’s dive in, shall we?!!!
Final Thought: GOD would have us study these Scriptures tonight and during the time that is set apart to hear directly from Him, so that it will sink into our hearts and resonate in our thoughts just how much power He has. You see, no matter how you choose to see yourself, or how little others think of you, or how much the enemy tries to box you in.. you, me, we have all been gifted by our incredible GOD to accomplish exactly what He created us as individuals to do, in and through His Name!!! Let this be the last time you allow the voices, plans and vision of others to overpower the Voice of GOD!!! GOD says:
“To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.”
John 10:3-5 KJV
Besides didn’t He also promise:
“being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”
Philippians 1:6 KJV
Now walk in the preordained destiny that GOD had prepared for you before the foundation of the World!!!! 🌍
