Trust in the Lord

Proverbs 29:25 Trust in the Lord and be Kept Safe

Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.” — Proverbs 29:25

Thought
Jesus told us not to fear other human opponents (Luke 12:4-5). When we try to please others, when we fear what others may say or do to us, we place ourselves in a position of great vulnerability. Our lives no longer remain our own. We become captive to what others think, want, or threaten. We are only to trust the LORD and reverence him. In God is our safety, both now, and forevermore.

Prayer
Please keep me safe, O LORD, from those who oppose me and would do me harm. Make my life a holy praise to honor you. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
