Seeking God’s approval vs man’s people approval will free you up to be unstoppable as a leader and entrepreneur but it’s so easy to fall into seeking approval of man. God’s word has a lot to say to us about seeking the approval of man over God and the reason is because we all struggle with it. People are here and now in front of us and we can fall into wanting to please people, meeting the world’s timeline and desiring to live by society’s expectations but this will hinder us from obeying God and following His lead.
God’s way’s are opposite of the world’s ways so if you want to follow Jesus it’s guaranteed you will have to draw a line in the sand and seek only God’s approval vs man’s’ approval as you go. If you don’t draw that line in the sand you will be in conflict with obeying God when the world is telling you to do something else. The only way around this is to choose clearly and completely for yourself that will seek God’s way over the world’s way and never look back.
I always remind myself that nobody else will be standing next to me when I stand before God at the end of my life. I can’t point the figure at one else or at the world in the end. I can only be fully accountable for my choices to obey God and listen to Him or to fall into the ways of the world and go with the flow of the world. As Jesus said in Matthew 7: 13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” so that path is not meant to be easy.
God’s word also says in Isaiah 55:8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. 9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. Which is exactly why we need to lean not on our understanding! So if you want to seek God’s approval vs man’s approval this episode will help empower you to do exactly that and to stay the course ahead of you!
