Former NBA Miami Heat Wayne Simien’s Testimony
John, Pat and Steve, discuss Wayne Simien’s former NBA Miami Heat champion’s testimony. He shares his struggles earlier in life that caused him to seek the approval of man. He shares how someone once told him that he wished that he was Wayne. Wayne says that he felt like it was a slap in the face. He felt so unfulfilled in life. He was on a downward spiral from drugs, alcohol, girls, and selfish ambition. He came to the point in his life where it had to be all about God and not about himself. Wayne had to get to the point like everyone who accepts Jesus into their heart realizes that I was created for more than just myself I was created for God. It is the realization that I was created for more than just myself. I was created for God.
The Fear of the Lord sets you FREE from the Fear of Man
John, Pat and Steve discuss how the fear of the Lord sets you free from the fear of man. They discuss Joy Dawson’s book on Intimate Friendship with God; Through the Understanding of the Fear of the Lord. Joy says in her book that “The fear of man is being more impressed with man’s reaction to our actions than with God’s reaction. When we have the fear of God upon us, we are impressed only with God’s reaction.” Proverbs 29:25 says “The fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord will be kept safe.” They discuss King Saul’s journey and how he feared the people more than he feared God. Saul because he didn’t have process in his life never dealt with the fear of man and in the end God wound up repenting that He ever made Saul King. When we fear man instead of God we serve man instead of serving God. The only way to be set free from the approval of man is to only be concerned with God’s reaction to our actions.
