Integrity is an uncommon quality. We are all born into sin and none of us escapes its hold on us or its manifestation through us. Under perceived threat, or simply to advance our interests, we will sacrifice our integrity.
God is not like us in that regard. He cannot do or be what he is not. God has infinite and flawless integrity. His promises may be counted on to be true and trustworthy. So, when you are desperate for help and you call upon Him, help will come.
It may not seem like a direct answer or a small miracle. God answers in such a way that you may or may not thank Him as you are unsure if the help that came was from Him. IT WAS! Thank him.
Following are some promises that we can all rely on. Do you need help right how? One of these is YOUR promise for help. Remember, when He promises, He cannot fail. His integrity will not permit him to break His promise. Stand on it and wait for the answer. “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.” Psalm 32:8
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
“He will rescue you from the fowler’s snare, from the destroying plague.” Palm 91:3
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
“For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, ‘Do not fear; I will help you’.” Isaiah 41:13
Trust is His Integrity. His promises do not fail.
