What you see isn’t always what you get.

Psalm 26:1 – Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity, and I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.

According to Webster, integrity is “firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values; incorruptibility.” says it is “adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.” says “Biblical integrity is not just doing the right thing; it’s a matter of having the right heart and allowing the person you are on the inside to match the person you are on the outside.” Perhaps a good word to consider is “consistency.”

For people who claim a relationship with Jesus, God expects them to live with integrity—to be upright and righteous.  The lack of integrity misrepresents God!  Knowing to do right and not doing it besmirches not only that person’s reputation, but the reputation of the Father.

When one steps out of a sin-ruled life into a life with Jesus, clothing themselves in integrity is a process. 1 Timothy 4:15-16 says, “Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress. Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers.”

Pray With Us

Holy and Righteous Father, thank You that You temper Your justice with mercy and grace. Thank You for giving us Your Word whereby I can learn how it is you want me to conduct myself.  Give me discernment as I seek the individuals with Your kind of integrity who would lead this nation. Give each of them understanding to know that  You are the ultimate judge and it is from You they will receive their vindication. Let each surround himself with counselors knowledgeable in Your Word and in Your expectations for a leader. You are the One who sets up kings and takes them down. I ask for Your blessed guidance as I approach the election this year. Thank You in Jesus Name,
