FEAR OF MAN
To Dream with God is to dare greatly. Daring greatly is neither puffing up (pride) nor is it hiding (false humility). Instead it is allowing your true self to be authentically seen. It is fearlessly allowing others to see who you are; your gifts, abilities, talents and dreams.
Crucial to having the freedom to dream, dare greatly and be courageous is not giving into the fear of man. There is great courage, creativity, innovation on the other side of dealing with the fear of man. Freedom from the fear of man means we cease from weighing the opinions of others before stepping out with God. When you deal with the fear of people you can no longer be manipulated and controlled by the desire to have the approval of people.
Bill Johnson says “If you don’t live by the praises of men then you won’t die by their criticism”.
