For we speak as messengers approved by God to be entrusted with the Good News. Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts. 1Thes 2:4. The fear of man will prove to be a snare. When our aim is to please others we will never reach the fullness of our potential in God. Rather than being man pleasers we must be God pleasers. We must hold on to the truths that we know is right in our heart, and pleasing in God’s sight. When we make God our priority, He will direct our steps an take us on paths that He can trust us on that will bear wonderful fruit in our lives and the lives of others. You can’t compromise on God’s Word as He sees your heart. So praise God today that as you make Him the desire of your heart, you will grow in strength and character, and walk in His peace always, realising that pleasing Him is the most important thing in your life.
