TOPIC: Who Do You Fear?

Read: Proverbs 29:25-27

25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

26 Many seek the ruler’s favour; but every man’s judgment cometh from the LORD.

27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.

Memorise: Proverbs 29:25

The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.


As God’s favourite, you have the right to divine security, which leads to unusual holdness. Hence, Proverbs 28:1 says that a child of God has the boldness that you find in lions. Today’s text also shows that the fear of man brings a snare, but those who put their trust in the Lord will be safe. If you are a child of God, you will fear no man but God alone.

In your school, you should not be afraid of any teacher who says you will fail his subject. In your university, you should not be afraid of cultists, in fact, they should see you and run because you carry God’s presence. The only person you should fear is God. If you look through the scriptures, you will find out that those who feared men fell into traps and those who feared God were saved from the traps of men. For instance, when a decree was made that no one should pray, rather than fear the men who made the decree, Daniel feared God and prayed. Eventually, the men replaced him in the lion’s den (Daniel 6). I pray that the Lord will show up for you every time you stand up for Him.


Men are to be respected and honoured, not feared. Only God should be feared.

HYMN 11 – O Lord My God! When Am In Awesome Wonder,

O lord my God!
When am in awesome wonder,
consider all
The worlds thy hands hath made
I see the stars,
I heard the rolling thunder
Thy pow’r thro’ out
The universe displayed

And when I think
That God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die
I scare can take it in;
That on the cross,
My burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died
To take away my sin.

Then through the woods
And forest glads I wander,
And hear the birds
Sing sweetly in the tress;
When I look down
From lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook
And feel the gentle breeze;

When Christ shall come
With shout of acclamation
And take me home,
What joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration
And there proclaim,
My God how great Thou art!
