Wear God’s Approval as Your Breastplate

Wear God’s Approval as Your Breastplate

When we are more concerned about what others think of us than how God thinks of us, we will always lose the battle. God’s approval protects your heart!

Paul encourages us to “put on God’s approval as your breastplate.”[1] He was saying, regardless of how the situation may look to others, when you know you are doing the right thing in the eyes of God, then whether or not man approves is of no consequence to you.

There were times when Jesus’ own family thought he had lost it.[2] Sometimes his disciples didn’t understand what he was talking about or where he was going.  But He based His direction on God’s approval, not mans, and it always served Him well.

God’s approval keeps my heart at peace. As long as I know I am pleasing God, I’m going to stay on the right path.

Listen to the complete message here.

[1] Ephesians 6:14 GW

[2] See Mark 6
