Don’t Abide Alone 3 – Be a God Pleaser

Don’t Abide Alone 3 – Be a God Pleaser


MAY 19 THU 2022 

“How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that  cometh from God only?” Jn. 5: 44 

There is nothing wrong with receiving encouragement and praise for a job well done.  And there is nothing wrong with giving encouragement and praise to brethren. But we must all  be careful to not become ‘hooked’ on receiving praise from others, for then we trick ourselves  into believing that just because people say something is good, God has accepted it. It will also  deceive us into thinking that God does not approve of our performance, just because people  have said they don’t like it. 

Secondly, when we are dependent on such praise, we will unconsciously begin actively  seeking it from people. We become ‘people-pleasers’. We should be instead hooked on  receiving praise and approval from God.  

Invest your energy in getting God’s approval for all you do. (2 Tim. 2: 15). 


Heavenly Father, I refuse to let what people would think of me be more important than obeying  You. Help me walk in full obedience, in Jesus name Amen.
