Inspirational Tuesday: Gems from Pastor Jim by Jim Hughes

Ps. 26:1 Declare me innocent, O LORD, for I have acted with integrity. I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.

The Lord does not condemn those who act with integrity of heart. We may not always get it right, but if we do what we do wanting to do what is right, God understands and honors our heart’s intent. He knows we are not perfect and does not hold that against us.

Now if we deliberately don’t do what is right, that’s another story altogether. There is accountability for those sins we deliberately sin against God. We are held responsible for willful sin. If you are a child of God and deliberately sin, are you not being spiteful towards Christ? It is defiance and should God let you get away with it? Of course not.

There is no condemnation for those who have an unwavering trust in the Lord. This means that we don’t fall into the trap of relying on our own wisdom or understanding or that of others. We turn to the Lord and listen to what He says. We acknowledge Him in all we do. We seek to obey Him because we love Him.

When our hearts are firmly set on the Lord, we know all is well with our souls and there is a peace that governs our lives that holds us steady and makes us strong. Satan may try to cast doubt on our souls but we stand firm because God declares us innocent. It matters not what Satan thinks or what people think; it only matters what God thinks about us.

Live with integrity of heart, trust in the Lord without wavering, and all things will be well with your soul both now and forever.
