Living in a world ruled by Satan, many are the threats against Christians. In Proverbs these threats are to referred to as the fear of man. Of course we know about the physical threats. But more often for Believers the more dangerous threat is the one against our minds. The threat that tells us we need to listen to the world rather than the truth of God. To be people pleasers rather than God pleasers. Because if we don’t we’ll be shunned, ridiculed, ostracized, or worse. But when we give in to such wrong peer pressure, rather than saving us, it ensnares us. It keeps us trapped in fear, anxiety, and compromise. It steals our joy, our testimony, and the security found in Jesus alone. So that’s why we need to be bold like Peter and declare, “We must obey God rather than human beings!” (Acts 5:29) Never fearing what man can do to us, and focusing instead on how God saves us.
