You Have Nothing to Prove!

I am fully aware that we are in a society today where people feel they need to prove themselves to others. When you are in Christ Jesus and you know who you are and WHOSE you are, there is no need to prove anything to anyone. In fact, I love what Paul says in Galatians 1:10 in the New Living Translation. He says “Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.”

At some point, you need to get to a point where you know you are on assignment for the Lord, and sometimes that may not be “pleasing” to other people. They may not agree with you. They may even try to come and persecute you, but you were fashioned together by the Lord (Psalm 139:13-14) not to please people, but to please Him and to do His will on the earth.

Paul states in the latter part of Galatians 1:10 that if pleasing people were his ultimate goal then He would not be a servant of Christ. This shows me that we have to accept the fact that not everyone will like or agree with us because everyone has their own opinion, and in Christ, opinions do not matter, it’s the truth that always wins out every time (1 Corinthians 13:6).

Jesus during His ministry never once proved Himself nor His abilities to anyone even when He was demanded by the Pharisees to do so and by others who doubted Him. Jesus knew He was on a Kingdom assignment and we are to live our lives as He did (1 John 2:6)

I want to encourage you, that God sees you. He knows everything about you. He was the very one who created you and anointed you with your gifts and abilities. Do not think for one second that you have to be a “people pleaser” Yes, you love one another and love others, but don’t let the opinions of others stop you from your God-given destiny. You are the only one who knows what God told you to do specifically. You have nothing to prove to anyone. We are here to please the Lord Jesus Christ, because when everything is all said and done I know you want to hear “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”
