Whom Shall I Fear?

The fear of man will hinder who you are as a person. When you have a fear of man existing in your life as if it is you, you are open to all kinds of fear of rejection, fear of not measuring up to other’s expectations and fear of not being accepted. You may fall prey to perfectionism, performance, and drivenness. Fear of man often drives people into seclusion, subjecting them to loneliness and isolation.

The following testimony is about an overcomer walking out this journey of fear of man:

Fear of Man

I’ve had the fear of man ever since I can remember. This fear caused me to stutter when I talked, and the stuttering worsened as I got older. It made me want to keep isolated and kept me from wanting to meet new people.

After I attended the For My Life® program, I have been walking it out. I’ve started facing my fears and ministering to others. As I step out, I am overcoming this fear of man. It’s not always easy. I’ve often had to force myself to do things that fear of man didn’t want me to do.

God has helped me be able to love and receive love from others, and that has helped my walk out of fear. 1 John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

When you are more afraid of man than you do God, you loose your fellowship with Him.  His love doesn’t change, but your fellowship with Him does.  The Bible tells us many times in Scripture to have a respectful and honoring fear of the Lord. When you have a holy fear of the Lord and reverence for the Father, you make the fear of man inferior.  The Lord you serve is always superior to the lord of fear.  Choose you this day whom you will serve.
