LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
I have come across some very dishonest people whose every intention was to swindle money out of my hand. But that does not bother me like when I come in contact with Christians who have no regard for their word. They fail to keep their word and it doesn’t seem to matter to them.
I used to be like that before. My words didn’t really matter much to me, but when I started studying the Bible, I realized that it was impossible for me to be conformed to the image of Christ and not be full of truth like Christ was. I realized that those who don’t work hard to keep their words among men will not have angels working hard to keep their word in the spirit realm.
If you take a close look at today’s Bible verses, you will see that truthfulness is a criterion for those who would dwell in the highest levels of fellowship and power with God. A man who fears God will keep his word even when it is not convenient.
Go into today examining yourself in the light of God’s Word today. Are you known as someone who keeps your word?
Ask the Lord to forgive every way you may have failed to represent Him in this area.
