One of my favorite things to teach on is identity in Christ. Oh boy, did I need to read this verse today! It is so easy for so many of us to fall into seeking the approval of man, especially when we are struggling with a trial in our life. Rather than continue to turn toward God and His comfort, we tend to turn toward others to fill us up with the “atta boy” or “good job!” Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with encouraging one another, we are called to encourage each other. Barnabas was a great encourager to the brethren. Where we become open prey for the enemy is when we begin to idolize the praises of man over simply being obedient to what God has called us to do.
Father I bind my will to your will and righteousness and I loose from me the approval and praises of man. It isn’t about me, I am simply a vessel you choose to work through. It is about your glory, your kingdom and the salvation of your creation. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
