Whose Opinion Matters?

Beth Jones

"The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in GOD protects you from that." Proverbs 29:25, The Message

Living for an Audience of One is the secret to being truly free. When we live to please the Lord and walk in a manner worthy of Him, that's all that really matters. We need to be reminded of this from time to time.

It's true, the fear of human opinion disables. When we are overly concerned about what others think – whether we meet with their approval or disapproval – our judgment becomes blurred and we veer from our core values. When we find ourselves saying or doing things merely to please people or not saying or doing things to please people, we become men-pleasers rather than God-pleasers.

So, what do we do? Seek God's approval and accept the fact that we'll never have a 100% approval rating from others. Be okay with that.

John, who addressed this topic when he spoke about some religious leaders of his day, said it best, "Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in Him. But because of the Pharisees they would not confess their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue; for they loved praise from men more than praise from God." (John 12:42-43)

Human opinion can be fickle, so go for praise that comes from God! It's possible that everyone will have an opinion about you – and the more the Lord uses you, the more opinions there will be! Don't be disabled by the opinions of others; trust the Lord and accept the truth of His Word. 

Let's go for the praise that comes from God! If you've found the opinions of others disabling you – make a change today. Trust in the Lord. When you are confident and clear in your heart that your decisions, actions and words are pleasing to the Lord, move forward – full steam ahead!

Say It: “Father, I know that everyone will have an opinion of me. Help me to not be overly concerned with the opinions of others; but rather help me to trust in You. Your opinion is the one that matters the most to me. Help me to live my life in a way that pleases You. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
