“May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, LORD, is in you“ (Psalm 25:21)
Dear friend, be joyful today because God has a great promise for you. The promise is found in Psalm 25:21, “May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, LORD, is in you”. The key thing God wants you to focus on is integrity and uprightness. Look forward to having integrity in your actions from now on. God values integrity and uprightness. God will help you to be truthful in all that you do. May be you are struggling to walk uprightly in your official work or in your relationships, don’t worry because God Himself will help you to be righteous in all that you do.
God is going to give you the strength to uphold your integrity. Before your parents or teachers or your boss in your company or whoever it may be, God will help you to be truthful in all your endeavours. Yes, God will give you the power to do it. Even as heads of the family, our actions reflect in the entire family. Our actions might bring blessings or may not bring the blessings of God. So we have to be very careful in our actions. We have to take right decisions for the entire family. God will help you to do it with integrity my friend.
You might wonder why you should be right when people treat you wrongly. You might want to treat them badly or reciprocate wrong for wrong but if you do that you might lose God’s blessings my friend. You might find many people cheating their way and getting ahead in life, getting promoted and you might think whether you should follow their ways but remember those are the ways of the devil. He only lies and cheats and does wrong things to people. Do not take his ways. Our way should be toward God. We should say like the psalmist, “My hope in You Lord,” (Psalm 25:21). Always remember that your blessings come from above and not from people above you. So always please God by being upright.
Loving Lord Jesus,
Give me grace to be truthful amidst the pressures of this world. Let the problems that I face not pressurize me to do anything that is wrong. Help me honour You in all that I do. Help me to be truthful before men whom you have placed above my life. Father, help me to serve You with integrity. Give me strength to be upright and righteous before You.
In Your Name I pray, Amen.
