Let God’s opinion complete you, not people’s opinions.
Ben Fitzgerald reminds everyone that only God’s opinion should matter in our lives. Many people try to create different façades of their own selves just to please the people around them.
In an attempt to please everybody and be at peace with everyone, we try to fake ourselves. However, that can never be fulfilled because God wants you to be real and genuine. He wants you to become the person that He created you to be.
“No man made you, only God made you,” Ben said. “Only God can be your source and when you make a fake pseudo gray area, you lose the real you. That’s why you don’t feel genuine when you walk away from conversations. That’s why you’re worried because that fake person that you made to make sure you fit in with everything and say everything right, and everyone’s at peace with you. That fake person that you made can never be fulfilled because God never made that person.”
You were made for Him
God made you for His glory and not for you to please people. God doesn’t want you to live depending on the praises of everyone around you, He wants you to live according to His purpose for you.
“You were made you for a reason. You were made in the image of God for a reason and you weren’t made to apologize for how God made you. And you certainly weren’t made to fear and to make people a source. You were made for Him.”
Ben then ended his message by warning people that the enemy will try to make you believe that you need people’s praises, that is not true. You only need God’s opinion to form and complete you.
“The enemy is strategic, he wants you to think that you need everybody’s opinion to form you, you need God’s.”
