Get crazy about passion and hold hold hold on wildly to your integrity and don't give it up for no man.
Don't set up a condition! THERE ARE NO CONDITIONS! I know that's bold! I know that's scary! But do you know where that scary comes from...the fear of God.
We need to hold on to our integrity like we mean it! And let the fears of other things melt under the fear and obedience to God.
The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity. I'm getting wild about this!
So you will walk in the way of the good and keep to the paths of the righteous. For the upright will inhabit the land, and those with integrity will remain in it
God really convicted me today of my integrity and has told me to hold on to it like I mean to. One who holds on to something like their life doesn't just say, "Gee.. I hope I remember this lesson about my integrity". Or, "Gosh, I hope no one takes away my integrity..." NO NO NO NO NO! I hear God saying, "That is not attitude!" We need attitude when it comes to this!! The enemy is prowling and he means business, NOW WHY DON'T WE?? We need to be crazy, crazy, CRAZY about keeping our integrity (study about it!) because Psalm 41:11-13 - By this I know that you delight in me: my enemy will not shout in triumph over me. But you have upheld me because of my integrity, and set me in your presence forever. Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! Amen and Amen.
We hold on to our integrity and as we hold on to our integrity we will notice how the enemy hates hates really really HATES it and we will be tempted to give it up (to ease ourselves of the opposition we receive, mostly in the mind) but we won't. I repeat, WE WILL NOT because in it we proclaim that is exactly why God blesses us because we are out loud about our integrity because it tells the world that (A) God loves us and (B) we are His children and there is nothing the enemy can do about it. Now what would make the enemy more angry? That's why we can be tempted to fear because the enemy will try to scream at us to get us to loosen up, take it casually, relax, or just like what he tried to do when he tempted Jesus is try to get him to renounce his position but NO we are meant and made to be alert, but never alarmed, Amen! We will always wildly and passionately hold fast. We were made to hold to the things God has given us to take hold of. I take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me and with passion I do this! With integrity of heart I do this! That Jesus Christ died and in three days rose again from the dead! For me! Say it! Now practice saying it with deeper and deeper sense of passion! There's a difference between casually expressed and confidently and wildly expressed!! And this my friends makes all the difference. We need to get serious. Delirious even! We are rich my brothers and sisters. We are rich. Now hold on to your treasure and don't just give it away for peanuts. Taste and see that the LORD is good. He has satisfied your life with great things. Hold to it. Hold fast to all his blessings and promises. Hold fast my children. Hold fast my friends and fam. God bless you.
God has great things in store for you today! God bless you and all yours!
