Who Butters Your Bread?
Psa 118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
The Word says that the fear of man is a snare. How true. We get so caught up pleasing people, making sure that we are not rejected by our friends, our family, our boss, that we hardly have opportunity to make sure that the One that really counts is pleased.
God is the boss! Nobody watches out for us and cares for us like He does. He is the One that butters our bread. Therefore we ought to give Him first consideration in all things. We will not stand before our teacher, our professor or our spouse on judgment day, but before the Lord.
If we seek to please Him first and foremost, everything and everyone else will find their place.
Lord, today we respect you above any other. We put you first. When we are confronted with the choice of your way or somebody else’s, may we recall that you are on our side. We've no need to fear man, for he can do nothing to us in comparison to what you can do in your power and might.
