Lord, I spend so much energy trying to please others when you are the one I want to please. Forgive me for letting the fear of man keep me from a whole-hearted focus on you.
You know my fears. I lift them up to you now and trust that you will deliver me. Father, give me the peace that passes all understanding as I turn my focus to you today. Help me to keep my eyes on you and you alone. Give me discernment to follow your guidance today in each challenge that I face.
Lord, instead of making other people the center of my life, I want to make you the center. I need your grace to keep my gaze fixed on you. Lord, as I look to you, make me radiant with your presence. Fill me with your spirit, so others can see a reflection of Jesus in me when I speak or smile. Not so that they’ll think I’m a good person, but so they’ll see you are a good God. Bring glory to yourself through me.
Father, I thank you in advance for answering my prayer and delivering me from my worries about what others think. I trust that you will enable me to shine the light of Christ today.
In Jesus’ Name,
