Seeds of Destiny Today 26 October 2021 MESSAGE
It has been confirmed that uprightness of life is key to destiny fulfilment. Uprightness is key to greatness in life. Uprightness is key to upliftment. To be upright is to end right up.
The Scripture gives us examples of men of uprightness and integrity. These were men who were positively affected by their uprightness in handling material or financial resources. We shall be looking at two of them today:
1 Samuel 12:3, 4 says,
Behold, here I am: witness against me before the Lord, and before his anointed: whose ox have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom have I defrauded? whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it you. And they said, Thou hast not defrauded us, nor oppressed us, neither hast thou taken ought of any man’s hand.
In essence, Samuel seemed to be challenging the whole assembly of the people of Israel that anyone among them who felt he had cheated him or her should openly walk forward and say it, but there was none. That was financial integrity and probity; it guarantees the future.
Daniel was another person in scripture who maintained the lifestyle of integrity and uprightness. Daniel was in charge of the king’s affairs but there was no damage Daniel 6:1-2).
The only person the king could find to take charge of the principal affairs of the empire, including the treasury and nothing got missing or damaged was Daniel. No wonder he ended as a great man.
Beloved, maintain the lifestyle of integrity. Refuse to stain your garment with iniquity.
REMEMBER THIS| Uprightness is key to upliftment. To be upright is to end right up.
1. Maintain the lifestyle of integrity always.
2. Avoid the lifestyle of compromise.
PRAYER| I receive the grace to walk in uprightness always. Deliver me from sin and its filthiness, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
