The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe. (Proverbs 29:25)
Thank you for being a God whom I can trust. You are faithful and trustworthy. Lord, I confess that sometimes I have been a people-pleaser more than a Christ-seeker. Forgive me if I have allowed what people may think of me, or what they may do to me, to hinder my obedience to your will. Teach me to place my hope in You and not man. Please help me to lean into you and trust you. When I am tempted toward anxious thoughts and self-consciousness, deliver me. Help me to be zealous and bold for you. As I learn to trust you, pour your peace into my heart, and let my life be an example of faithfulness, steadfastness, and godliness to those around me. Plant my feet on a firm foundation and help me neither falter nor waver in my faith in you.
In Jesus’ name,
