Your faith will be hindered because you are relying on what man says and thinks. Therefore, you will miss your destiny and not be effective.
When you let the words of men, what they think and say, control you, you will find yourself compromising, playing it safe, or shrinking back. You will live in boxes and be miserable.
I remember this preacher saying, “If everyone likes you, you may be compromising in some way. Your convictions and beliefs may be tainted.”
You see once you take a stand you will be condemned. Stop living for man’s approval. The only thing that matters is God’s approval. In 1 Thessalonians 2:4 NLT says, ”Our purpose is to please God, not people.”
