Overcoming a Compulsion to Please People
Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe. In the name of Jesus I cast down the compulsion to please people. Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ. Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: see if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Amen.
