As I was reading Proverbs 29:25 I was reminded how the enemy can trip us up. "Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe." (NIV)
It is dangerous to fear men and not trust God. Fear is a peculiar thing. People will do all kinds of things to avoid their worst fear from coming true. The Bible says that fear brings torment. Why do we want to be tormented?
My challenge for you today is to fear God, and trust in Him for your life. If you fear men you will walk into a trap set out by the enemy.
