“Be not afraid of their faces” [Jeremiah 1:8]
<b>“Be not afraid of their faces”.</b> The Lord repeated these words to Jeremiah at the outset of his ministry and He would repeat them to every disciple who goes forward to serve the Lord. A look at the faces of his hearers can frighten the most eloquent preacher. The servants of the Lord must draw their inspiration to go forth from the Lord: they must look to His face.
Unbelief is written on the face of many – cold, unmoving unbelief. On others there is scorn and ridicule written on the face. Looking at them can make you afraid.
Some set their face against the gospel – they are opposed to it and to all it proclaims.
Don’t be afraid of any of them: they threaten but cannot put a finger on any child of God unless He allows them.
