Galatians 1:10| “Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.”
My whole life I’ve lived in bondage to the fear of man. Being weighed down by others opinions of me and trying to make others happy. What a pathetic life it was. I thank God for the freedom I now have. Today I want to share it with you.
Honestly it’s a waste of time and energy to try to make others happy or please them. It’s exhausting and heart breaking because no matter how hard you try or how good you are, it’s impossible to do so! Jesus was perfect and people still didn’t like Him and ultimately killed Him.
The truth is that when you follow and obey God many people will not be happy because they begin to lose power and control over you. And that makes them mad. So the more you obey God and please Him, the more you will displease people.
Therefore, make it your goal to please God and obey Him. This is the only thing that will bring you true peace and joy. Leave it up to Him to help others find their own joy, that’s not your responsibility.
So, be free of that burden now. It’s not from the Lord. His burden and yoke is easy and light. You carry His burden by obeying Him. But you can’t even do that on your own.
Today, draw upon the grace of the Lord, the help of the Holy Spirit, to obey the Lord and live to please Him and Him alone. In Jesus Name, amen.
