#ElluresInspiration: Approval of Man

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10

At a very young age it is dictated to us that in order to be “normal” one must conform to the trends and expectations of society. From the way we do our hair, the music we listen to, to the “fashion” we put on our backs etc. We all are guilty of consciously and unconsciously doing things to impress people. So I ask, why do you work so hard for the approval of man? Don’t you know man can never be satisfied? Why does thou covet and plot evil when you see something your neighbor has that you do not? Does thou know the sacrifices one has made to gain the whole world?

Maybe Gods has brought you into this world with little to nothing, maybe he has stripped you of everything or things just aren’t going how YOU WANT, know that you are still good in his sight, but he wants you to be content with what you have and solely focus on him. “Teach a man to fish he will eat for a life time.” Strip a man to nothing and he shall survive for a life time through faith, prayer and perseverance he shall learn make something out of nothing. Some people are given things, but in order to be in the army of the lord the strong must be constantly tested. Everything we do must be to glorify our heavenly father not to win approval of man. Open yourself and ask God to order your steps so that your actions are beneficial to his kingdom.  Pray that you may proclaim things clearly. 5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. Colossians 4. If we are still trying to please people, then we can not be a servant of the Lord.

Have A Blessed Day
