The Day of Integrity
May I daily example to others a “lifestyle” of integrity.
(The Lord my rock. –Psalm 18:2)
The Lord is my rock and my FORTRESS, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Psalm 18:2
Read: Psalm 18 & Psalm 34
The evidence that the Lord is my rock is proven and displayed to others by the degree of integrity that daily governs my life. If the Lord is my fortress, I will not fall prey to the mindsets of this world and its dishonest principles. “IF" the Lord is my fortress, I will not stand upon the motivations, nor, find rest in the comfort zones, of anything that doesn’t come into alignment with the integrity of His Kingdom Principles.
Therefore, as of today O Lord, may my every thought, motive and action affirm the fact that you are truly my rock and my fortress. It is you that I run to daily to support and anchor me. It is you that I depend upon as my pillar, as my prop, as my leaning post, as my only genuine stake which possesses the ability to remain stable and non-influential in this ever - changing world.
It is only because of your revealed quality as Yahweh Sali, that I am capable of remaining unshaken in the midst of every storm. Even nature has revealed that in the eye of every hurricane or tornado is a place of total peace. I have discovered that it is the guidance of your eye, Yahweh Sali, which is capable of giving me total peace and stability when the turmoil and devastative effects of hurricanes and tornados manifest themselves in my life. No matter what occurs, because of your integrity, towards me - I can always find comfort in the fact that you have hidden me in the “cleft of yourself” and permitted me to find safety in the “secret place” of who you are. You have allowed me to abide under your shadow. It is in you that I can wholeheartedly trust.
I have learned to live a lifestyle of integrity because my life is founded upon the foundation of the pillar of who you are. I will never lower myself to the place where my level of honesty yields to: deceitfulness, cheating, deception or pretense. May I never forget that because you are that Fortress; I must apply the essence of who you are to my life. Whatever composes the nature of a fortress; those are the identical traits upon which I must build my standard of integrity. May I never forget that you have been and will always be the example of true integrity…. Therefore, YOU my perpetual place of comfort….my FORTRESS.
As the hymn states….. “A mighty fortress is our God, A bulwark (safeguard) never failing!”
I decree and declare that it is so…..In the name of Jesus. Amen.
