The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.
— Proverbs 29:25 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus told us not to fear other human opponents (Luke 12:4-5). When we try to please others, when we fear what others may say or do to us, we place ourselves in a position of great vulnerability. Our lives no longer remain our own. We become captive to what others think, want, or threaten. We are only to trust the LORD and reverence him. Actively placing our faith in the LORD crowds fear out of our hearts. As we deliberately put our faith in the LORD, God becomes our security, both now and forevermore.

My Prayer...

Please keep me safe, O LORD, from those who oppose me and would do me harm. Make my life a holy praise to honor you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
