Fear of man
Lack of experience or knowledge could cause us to fear man in carrying out our work. It was the fear of what my boss would think? what would the management say about my presentation, what would be the result of my recommendations at work? what will “they” say?
While still inexperienced, I used to have sleepless nights gripped with the fear of man until a verse can to my notice
Proverbs 29:25 25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.
Man is so unreliable with their different experiences,, biases, prejudices and hidden agendas. I could go crazy if I tried to please everyone. It is oft said you can please some people some of the time but not everyone all the time. Because the Lord knows the end from the beginning His guidance will be safe for me.
Praise God it is glory just to walk with Him because He has and will guide my steps aright.
