Hello, and thanks for checking stopping by. The fear of man means having a concern for men’s opinions; being affected by another person’s good opinion of you; or a desire to be popular with others.
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? (Psalm 118:6 NKJV)
The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe. (Proverbs 29:25 NKJV)
So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6 NKJV)
The one who trusts in the Lord shall be safe. Safe means secure or set on high. Don’t look for man’s approval; look for God’s approval.
He will make you secure, protected and sheltered in His love and mercy. (Ex 14:14; Ps 32:7; 46:1; Isa 54:17)
The Lord will also give you success in life. (Josh 1:8; Eccl 10:10; Ps 1:1-3; Pro 16:3; 1 Kgs 2:3) God’s opinion should be the ONLY one about which we’re concerned!
