- The decision to walk uprightly. Psa. 84:11, “For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” You are the one to make the decision. Decision is action of a yielded will. You must decide to walk uprightly where everything around you is walking in zigzag. It is not easy in the world today. Just because of the decision to walk uprightly you will come to a point where no good thing will be withheld from you. Would you rather not walk uprightly? Decide to walk uprightly, it will pay off. When every other thing is crawling, you will be the only one flying. God will ensure that no good thing is withheld from you. Every short cut will cut you short, so avoid short cuts.
There is a very serious crisis of integrity in the world today which some call diplomacy. The diplomacy that makes you tell lies is deplorable, run away from it as a child of God. Strive to walk uprightly, decide to tell the truth at all cost. Be a child of God indeed and let heaven back you up to succeed. No good thing will He withhold from you. My late niece and her friend at a point decided to give their lives to Christ and that decision was total. Her friend was working in an oil servicing company so she was well remunerated. The general manager of the oil servicing company suddenly took interest in her and started making amorous overtures towards her and of course she resisted. The man continued but the lady resisted. Eventually she was sacked as a result of her resolve not to compromise. She cried to God and God in His faithfulness opened a space for her at the British Council, a better place where she was better remunerated, paid in foreign currency with opportunity of overseas trips. It is better to be jobless than to do corporate prostitution. A lot of people are corporate prostitutes carrying things that are worse than spiritual HIV – carrying an evil seal. Anything God cannot give you, don’t aspire to have; it is not good enough for you! This is one of the things that the devil is using to bring down Christians; they throw away a divine call for lower calls. The moment you do this, it is welcome to Babylon. That person is already a failure. We have something the world cannot give; align with God; he will not withhold anything from you. The easiest thing God can give you is money. Jesus said what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and lose his soul in hell?
- Father, in any way that I have not been upright in my business dealings, in my relationships, in my dealings with you, I am sorry, please forgive me. Mighty God, help me, wash my transgression and help me Lord to be upright and to walk uprightly for the rest of my life. I take this decision and I trust you to back me to succeed in Jesus name. I know that you will not withhold any good thing from me in Jesus name. Amen.
