Unimpaired Integrity

“Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?  And still he holds fast to his integrity, although you incited Me against him, to destroy him without cause.”  Job 2:3

The Merriam Webster dictionary defines integrity as:

*medically, an unimpaired condition
*soundness
*firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values
*incorruptibility
*the quality or state of being complete or undivided – completeness

Lord, we praise You, for any integrity we have is because of the unimpaired greatness of You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Incorruptible

source – usdailyreview.com

You look at us and see
what we never can
and Your eye upon us holds tighter
than any circumstance can
birthing an integrity
we didn’t know we had
from the unimpaired condition
of being completely in Your sound hand.

  1. I surrender myself into The Potter’s Hand….!

  2. There is so much here in the scripture and in your post. For some reason a phrase comes to my mind:

    “every whit whole”…

    Love,
    Theresa

  3. “the quality or state of being complete or undivided – completeness”
    Indeed He is the only one in this conflicted world who can put within us an undivided heart. May we see what He sees!

  4. I love that story of how satan wen to God and asked for permission it reminds me of how satan still goes to God and ask for permission concerning us and God tells him what he can and can not do. AMEN

  5. AMEN! our integrity truly is rooted in Christ and His intervention and enabling in our lives. Thank you for a message of encouragement this morning!

  6. WOW, what a power-filled poem/message, Sis Deb! God bless you today as you continue to present yourself before Him with the Integrity He’s placed in you. Praying for you always–love you, sis Caddo

  7. I like how Job was minding his own business, being the most righteous man in the land. Then God brags about him to Satan and the next thing you know, Job has boils and trials.

    So, if you’re going through trials right now, it might just be that God has been bragging about you.

  8. Larry cracks me up–I can only HOPE God’s been bragging about me!!
