Daily Verse: “The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.” Prov. 29:25

True security.

Fearing other people traps you. Lord knows I’ve spent many years caged with fear of others’ opinions and attitudes. Becoming a devotional writer helps me to let go of those snares as I draw closer to Him.

Emailing Ron for the first time after we met took a tremendous amount of faith. Waiting anxiously for his reply, I kept reminding myself, “God loves you, even if Ron rejects you. You have all you need in Jesus.” Psalm 118:8 became my prayer mantra:

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.”

Found in the middle of the Bible, David’s words give me peace. Man will always let you down, but God never will.

Live for the applause of nail-scarred hands, not the flawed thoughts of others. People create narratives; God reveals truth. Faith in the Creator brings proper security.

God’s unconditional love conquers all.

Lord, forgive us for worrying about what other people think of us more than what You think. Help us love ourselves as You intend, letting go of negative self-talk and replacing it with Your description of us. IJNIP. Amen
