Proverbs 29:25 — Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.
This area is a struggle for you… a snare. You allow what people think of you to overwhelm you, causing you to be fearful instead of stepping out into what I ask you to do. This world is going to end… man’s power and opinions don’t matter, only what is Spiritual and everlasting should be your concern.
Don’t get caught up with what your friends and neighbors are doing. Seek guidance from Me, I know the directions you should go. Don’t conform to this world and try to please the people around you. Most will never be satisfied and you will end up exhausted. I am the only one who can truly satisfy.
Put your trust and faith in Me, no matter what anyone thinks or says. Does it really matter if someone thinks less of you for My sake? No, I tell you, if you stand up for Me and push through the embarrassment and ridicule for my sake, I will reward you greatly in Heaven. This will more than make up for your time, efforts and troubles. No matter what anyone thinks, push forward, I am with you and that’s all that matters.
