Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of
God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying
to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:10 NIV
People pleasers.
They come in all different forms.
Some are worried about what people think of
them. Some are constantly killing themselves
over the fact that someone does not "seem" to
like them. Some wonder constantly, "What will
it 'look' like?" Some need everybody, everyday
to affirm, validate, or approve of them. Some
will compromise what they know to be right in
order to fit in. I know that this post is not for
everyone because there are people out there that
don't care what people think of them and that is
great! But, I am here to encourage those that do
and to help them break free. I've never been one
to compromise, but I have been the one who
worked so hard to be nice to EVERYONE
because I wanted EVERYONE to like me. even
if it meant my feelings getting hurt in the
process. But the older I get, the more I realize
that no matter how nice I am, some folks just
won't like me! And that's fine. Does it change
the fact that I'm saved? Nope. Does it mean that
I'm not nice? Nope. Does it mean that I'm not a
good person? Nope. Here's a GREAT question:
does life stop because someone doesn't like me?
I have three words for you: life goes on! Here's
another GREAT question: Does their opinion
change God's mind about me? Malachi 3:6 says,
"For I am the Lord, I change NOT." And last,
but certainly not least: Does it mean that I have
to not like them because they don't like me?
Absolutely NOT! Truth is: the people that hate
me the most are the people that God places on
my heart the most to pray for and show love to
them. Not to get them to like me, but to be
obedient to God. "Your love for one another
will prove to the world that you are my
disciples" (John 13:35 NLT). "Do not seek
revenge or bear a grudge against one of your
people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am
the Lord" (Leviticus 19:18). "This is my
commandment: Love each other in the same
way I have loved you" (John 15:12 NLT). Is it
easy all the time? Nope. Is it worth it? Yes,
because although I can't change people.....I CAN
BE FREE! Welcome to Part 1 of the Breaking
Free Series. Today, we're breaking free from
people (their approval, acceptance, what they
think, etc.,).
Why do we need to break free from people?
Because one of the greatest prisons that you can
live in is the fear of what other people think.

One question: Did you know that you had the last say? After
hearing a message taught by Pastor Mark Hankins I began a more in
depth study on one of my favorite men in the Bible....David and
found a similarity between his life and Christ's life. As we all know
David faced Goliath in 1 Samuel 17:42-51 and Jesus was tempted by
Satan in Matthew 4:3-11. In life, we all will face giants and be
tempted by Satan; speaking the Word of God releases God's power
to win in each conflict. One thing for sure is that it takes FAITH to
go where God wants you to go, and it takes FAITH to stay where
God wants you to stay. FAITH is not an accessory or an option; it is
an absolute necessity.

Winning the war of words is necessary to win the fight of faith. As
we all know David, a young boy who kept his fathers sheep and
Goliath, a giant who had been a warrior from his youth, were going
to go head to head in battle. We will see that the real battle was won
before David actually killed Goliath. "A war of words had to be won
before victory could be consummated."

"He looked David over and saw that he was no more than a boy,
glowing with health and handsome, and he despised him. He
said to David, Am I a dog, that you come at me with sticks?
And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. Come here, he
said, and Ill give your flesh to the birds and the wild animals!"
David said to the Philistine, You come against me with sword
and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the
Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have
defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and Ill
strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give
the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild
animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in
Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword
or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lords, and he
will give all of you into our hands. (1 Samuel 17: 42-47)

As Pastor Mark Hankins said, "Never run at your giant with
your mouth shut!" Before David ran at Goliath a war of words
went on. Goliath said.... David said....Goliath said....DAVID
SAID. You know the end of this story....David prevailed and
won the fight...but he first won the war of words....HE HAD

"Never run at your giant
with your mouth shut!"
Pastor Mark Hankins

"For verily I say unto you,
That whosoever shall say
unto this mountain, Be thou
removed, and be thou cast
into the sea; and shall not
doubt in his heart, but shall
believe that those things
which he saith shall come to
pass; he shall have
whatsoever he saith." Mark
