Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe. —Proverbs 29:25

To fear man is to be held back from what the Lord wants to do in and through our lives. Just like a poor rabbit caught in a snare is going nowhere, but is stuck in the pain of the snare, so also we will be stagnant in the ache of our own fear.

We need not fear anyone if we are truly trusting in the Lord. You say that you are truly trusting in the Lord, but why then are you fearing in this or that situation? We overcome our fears by trusting in the Lord God Almighty and we say, “Whom shall I fear?” We need not fear any person.

When we really understand Who we know and Whose we are, why would we fear? Today, go forth knowing and trusting the One who is greater than all. This is the One you know and love. This is the One who loves you more than any other. So, fear not! He who loves you said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” (Hebrews 13:5-6). The Lord God Almighty is greater than all! Fear not, trust Him who cares more for us than we care for ourselves!

Dear Glorious, Compassionate Father, I am grateful that I need not fear man because of knowing You. Oh, when fear seeks to raise its ugly paralyzing tentacles may I trust You to free me from that fear. May it be so in the authority of Jesus and in the power of Your Holy Spirit. May it be so.
