“And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.” (Psalms 41: 12)
Integrity. Soundness of moral character. Wholeness. An unimpaired condition which is beyond reproach. This integrity is our natural state of being. It is how God created each one of us, perfect as His own thoughts surely are.
And this rightness and untouchable completeness is maintained, upheld by God. He sustains this reality of us, and we can recognize and live it. Now. Today. This claiming and reclaiming has to do with our perspective. We are set before God’s face. He is always looking at us—His love radiating on us and His qualities before us to be seen, and to be recognized as our very own.
As we look up and into that loving countenance, as the psalmist did, we can see ourselves as we truly are—made in God’s image and full of honesty, goodness, strength, confidence, uprightness, and well-being. We have the integrity of God’s own workmanship, and He stands with us, stands up for us, and keeps us as the evidence and object of His Spirit and of His Love.
