What Truth Do You Stand For?

“If you don’t stand for a truth, you’ll fall for all lie”

One disease that has eaten deep into the system of man is that we are easily swayed away by the wind of doctrine

Many accept defeat easily “For fear of losing” yet they lose “No solid foundation”
The question is, What truth do you stand for?

Integrity can’t be bought with money or anything, Integrity is self honor and respect for the truth you stand for… Integrity does not conot stupidity but sincerity in your clarity

One man of Integrity in the scripture is Job, well recommended by God and his wife,
Job 2:3,9
[3]And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? “and still he holdeth fast his integrity”, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.
[9]Then said his wife unto him, “Dost thou still retain thine integrity?” curse God, and die.

Job’s wife said he should curse God and die, she knows the implication of falling off the truth he stands for so she added the implication.
God referred to Job as a man of Integrity because with everything and every word spoken, he stood on the truth “Tested and Trusted” one I can vow for, no matter what

What truth do you stand for?

In the parable of the sower matt13:18-22 … Many have nothing they stand for because they have no good soil or foundation, that’s why we have faulty foundations

A man of Integrity is one who …
1. Is Preserved.. Psalms 25:21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee… That was why the devil couldn’t not touch the soul of Job, his soul was preserved, and when there’s life, there’s hope

2. Is Uphold by God: God resist the pride but he uphold a man of Integrity, “Psalms 41:12 And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.”

3. Is guided: people know you for the truth you stand for, without doubt and it hard to get stained, Proverbs 11:3
[3]The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them… Job’s could have been destroyed, scripture says he sacrifice for his Children unto God, he knew what he stands for that he didn’t even bother to sacrifice for himself.

3. Is free: there’s no fear of what people say when you know what you stand for.. Job 27:5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me… Integrity was his stand.
