The Release of The SPIRIT

 

Day 4

 

Open Your Heart

 

Pursue Integrity

 

In mathematics an integer is a whole number and not a fraction. Integrity is exactly like that; it cannot be fractionalized. There is no room for secret patterns of questionable behaviors that are out of sync with our public image. People tend to rationalize and compartmentalize, but any patterns of secrecy should set off alarm bells inside and shake us into ruthless, internal honesty.

 

It’s more than a cliché to say that our secrets keep us sick. Yet into the very center of the dark, secret places God planted the cross and hung His Son on it. This is our hope—God meets us at our worst, calls us to the painful honesty of confession, forgivingly frees us, and then recreates us with His resurrection Spirit. Integrity is possible because of this.

 

Pray the Scriptures:

1 Kings 9:4, 5

Psalm 41:11–13

Proverbs 2:6–8

Titus 2:7, 8

 

Focus Today:

Ask yourself, “Are there areas of ongoing secrecy in my life that I am intentionally hiding from those closest to me?” Open your heart to God and ask Him to reveal those areas to you.

 

In everything set them an example by doing what is good. (Titus 2:7)”
