How to Win - Week Four
Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe. Proverbs 29:25 (NIV)
the Disease to Please (Dr. Harriet Braiker)
We are obsessing over what others think.
We are overly sensitive to criticism.
We have a hard time saying no.
The easiest way to FORGET what God thinks about you is becoming OBSESSED with what others think about you.
HOW DO WE OVERCOME THE DISEASE TO PLEASE?
FOCUS ON PLEASING GOD OVER PLEASING PEOPLE.
Obviously, I'm not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ's servant. Gal 1:10 NLT
LIVE FROM THE APPROVAL OF GOD INSTEAD OF FOR THE APPROVAL OF PEOPLE.
On the contrary, we speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please people but God, who tests our hearts. 1 Thessalonians 2:4 (NIV)
You win within whenever your identity is secure with HIM.
Do one thing to apply the gospel daily.
