Psalm 56:3-4, “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
Proverbs 29:25, Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.
David decided to put his trust God when people were attacking him. He asks, “what can man do to me?” What a declaration of confidence! What a show of true faith and freedom from the fear of man. Proverbs 29:25 says, “the fear of man brings a snare.” God wants us to place our trust in Him and fear Him. Not be afraid of Him, but have a healthy respect, esteem and honor for the Lord. When the Lord holds this place in our hearts, we don’t have to fear any other man. Pray that God would allow you to release any fear that is hindering your growth today. As we gather tonight for our Hot Night Service, pray for God to do something new in you.
