Psalm 41:12: "In my integrity YOU uphold me and set me in YOUR presence forever."
I was compelled to read this verse "opposite" this morning.
"In my lack of integrity YOU can't uphold me and won't set me in YOUR presence forever."
When read as an opposite, it comes across much more powerful in producing a challenge that will prompt an action of integrity. I want God to uphold me. I want to be in His presence. What will keep me from that? My lack of integrity.
Son, make it your daily discipline to be a man of integrity. This chosen (as we have to chose integrity) characteristic pleases the heart of God.
