In Proverbs 29:25 it is written: The fear of man brings a snare [AMPC].
A snare. The Hebrew word is mowqesh, a noose, a trap, the cause of evil or bondage.
The fear of man brings bondage—what a great picture of rejection.
There’s no captive on earth who doesn’t know what rejection is. Maybe this is you. Your very life has oozed rejection. You’ve seen it on every face. You’ve tasted it from every tongue. Every laugh you’ve heard on the edge of a crowd – it was meant for you. You’ve met rejection where you expected it; you’ve encountered it where you least expected it. When you thought you were home, they pulled out the carpet. When you thought you’d found freedom, they threw you in jail. And as for true love – well, we all have stories we could tell.
But I have good news for you. Rejection is not you. Rejection is a spirit. All your life, this spirit has twisted your perceptions to make you feel, on a conscious or an unconscious level, not only that you were rejected, but also that you deserved to be. Rejection used the package life gave you and tied it up around you so that no matter how it came at you the results were always the same. But this package—it was lies. And it came to you from the father of lies, in order to hold you captive. Did it work?
Rejection causes you to fear what man will do to you. Even more, you fear what man will think of you. This fear has held you captive.
But there is good news.The fear of man might bring bondage but whoever leans on, trusts in, and puts his confidence in the Lord is safe and set on high.[Proverbs 29:25 AMPC]
How so, you may ask? Life without Rejection, available through amazon.com, can help you understand both the problem–ah, but there are many ways into bondage, aren’t there?– and the solution. The way out. You will see that what you thought was you was a spiritual lie and what you thought there was no cure for, the Lord Jesus is willing and able to fix for you—if you will let Him.
