People Pleasing Vs Pleasing God
For those of you who are shackled by what people think of you, you won’t act if you think someone else won’t like it. You won’t move forward, for fear of the push back you would get from other people.
This message is for you.
You put more weight in what they think then what God thinks because you don’t have a tangible God standing in front of you telling you what to do.
And the angel of the Lord appeared to the woman and said to her, “Behold, you are barren and have not borne children, but you shall conceive and bear a son. Therefore be careful and drink no wine or strong drink, and eat nothing unclean, for behold, you shall conceive and bear a son. No razor shall come upon his head, for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb, and he shall begin to save Israel from the hand of the Philistines.”
Samson went down to Timnah, and at Timnah he saw one of the daughters of the Philistines. Then he came up and told his father and mother, “I saw one of the daughters of the Philistines at Timnah. Now get her for me as my wife.” But his father and mother said to him, “Is there not a woman among the daughters of your relatives, or among all our people, that you must go to take a wife from the uncircumcised Philistines?” But Samson said to his father, “Get her for me, for she is right in my eyes.”
His father and mother did not know that it was from the Lord, for he was seeking an opportunity against the Philistines. At that time the Philistines ruled over Israel.
God had samson choose a woman from the philistines that his mom and dad didn’t approve of, but God was in that decision.
I’m not saying don’t listen to your parents. I’m not saying to disrespect them. The bible says to honor your mother and father. But I am saying this, my parents have disagreed with me at times, and I respect them.
People who are good and who have good opinions, sometimes they don’t hear directly from God, what God has told you. God may be using a decision in your life that isn’t popular, that won’t be well received, that you may not be applauded for, but
none of that matters if God is in it.
Who do you want to please?
Do you want to please God?
Because God has some pretty good blessings if you listen to him instead.
Here’s the thing, in today’s world people are not following God because faith looks crazy. He has already gone ahead and considered all the options, yet he’s still asking you to do it.
Samson was set apart, to help free bondage, and if he would have listened to his parents push back it might have cost him his in to deliver the nation of Israel from the hands of the philistines
What is everyone telling you can’t do?
‘Don’t you step out in faith it’s not wise.’
Wake up and read the scripture! You wouldn’t be here without the wisdom of God!
I want you to walk in freedom, so what is it that God’s telling you to do?
Walk in the obedience of God.
