he left her weak
not expecting her to fly
but wings grow strong
once the cage is gone
and she left him in the shade
with her wings in the sun
God is the only "being" worthy to fear on earth.
Fear of man will lead you the wrong way every day!
Emphatic exclamation on this statement.
If there is any one thing more detrimental to spiritual growth and more cancer corrosive than fear of man, 
I haven't found it.
Fear of man is spoken of by God repeatedly because He recognizes our desire for his approval and the sense of identity we either lose or gain based on his fickle response.
We lie, cheat, deceive, project, pretend, and do a thousand false things to be approved by man. 
To appear a certain way to man,
To be liked by man,
To fear man,
Is in man.
It's a crazy deal and we're a crazy people and God says,
Let it all go and be done with man;
Fear God alone.
Your redemptive rights and "child rights" are sealed and securely tied to God the Father through Christ His Son, and realized in you by His Holy Spirit.
The less you care what others think and the more you "mind" what God thinks,
 the more powerful, profound, and purposeful your life will become.
And the voice of God backs this up.
"Fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings. For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool."
Isaiah 51:7-8
Let nothing move you but that which has the power to eternally change you and prepare you for the life to come.
Steer clear of man;
Stay near to God.
Let him go.
Proverbs 1:7 and Proverbs 29:25
