Pleasing God Not Man

I told someone just the other day that ministry is about pleasing God not man. I also said that I don’t need to win man’s approval as long as I have God’s. Amen! 

Paul in the bible feels the same way. He was evidently not worried about trying to please the people around him. It’s not that he didn’t care about others. It’s just that his primary focus was on serving the Lord. 

Many times, you may be too worried about what people think of you, which inhibits you from following God with your whole heart. Instead, follow those God-given desires with reckless abandon, because all that will matter in the end is fulfilling God’s plan for your life. 

Today remember you are called to serve God without reserve, so fulfil His plan without letting others side-track you with their selfish, self-centred, denominational political agendas. Please don’t forget it’s always God first and man second. 

Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:10, NIV) 

Let’s Pray  

Yahweh, give me the dedication to be Your servant alone. Help me not to be side-tracked by what others may think of me or their self-centred political denominational agendas. Father, I am tired of looking for man’s approval over Yours. I repent of that sin and ask for Your forgiveness. God make me Your servant today and always, In Christ’s name. Amen.
