  • Brianna for verse 25
    Very powerful. I really appreciate all the other comments, and sharing your stories. It is nice to see the Bible bring you comfort despite the challengers you have had in life. Fear of man is a tool satan has used greatly In our society. Fear of man prevents many from standing up for what is right. Fear of man cripples individuals to stand up for themselves! To conquer this fear would be a valuable asset in my life, and in my spiritual life.

  • Debbie C for verse 25
    I know the Lord has a plan for me. I have been dealing with the snare of the lion, all of my life. Today I accept it, recognize it, pray on it, & move on. The Lord knows my heart. My joys, my fears, and my sorrows. He didn't carry me this far to leave me...Can I get an "AMEN"!
  • Nomsa Zitha for verse 25
    I was abused by my ex-husband for many years and feared him. Proverbs 29:25 released and freed me from the years of fear. I thank God for keeping me "Safe and Free".
  • I have a very paralyzing fear, just fear, it may be fear of man. I was raised in a very abusive environment, as a child abused by a brother for sixteen years, I have forgiven him but still suffer from the long bad experience. I have a CD, “Healing the child within”, but that bad experience still often comes to my mind, it's fear of man, my problem thanks. Andrew
