Spiritual Warfare: 'Who Are You Trying to Please?'
God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, July 21, 2022
Am I now trying to win the favor and approval of men, or of God? Or am I seeking to please someone? If I were still trying to be popular with men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.
— Galatians 1:10 AMP
Lord, forgive me for focusing on my popularity with people instead of my work as a servant of Christ and of Your Kingdom. I confess that I’ve often neglected my duties as a Christian in order to win favor and approval of the people around me and this present world. I don’t want to live like that anymore. Help me to seek to please You from here on, asking You each day about what I can do for the Kingdom, Lord, and grant me the courage to accomplish Your will for my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
