TOPIC: Character – A Key To Stability in Life
SCRIPTURE: Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide. Psalms 26:1.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Character establishes a person on solid ground in life.
Character is not just powerful; character is power. The real power of a man is the power of his character. The real power of a man is not his financial power, muscular power, or occult power, but character power.
The silence of character is louder than the utterance of compromise. This means, the silence of people of character weighs heavier than the utterance of people without character.
Now, what is the power of positive character? Take note of this:
Character guarantees stability.
A man of character is a man of stability (Psalms 26:1). To slide is to fall on a slippery ground. A person of character is not permitted to slip or fall. The feet of a man of character cannot slip. Character brings stability.
Please note that character establishes a person on solid ground in life (Psalm 26:11-12). A person of character stands on solid ground.
On the other hand, a person without character stands on slippery ground. This means, if you see a person without character today, nothing about his life is sure. There is nothing about him that is guaranteed or sure. You cannot guarantee that where he is today is where he will be tomorrow. He may be up today, but down tomorrow. It is only character that makes a person stand on solid ground.
For example, Samson was up at one time in his life but at another time, he fell because character bankruptcy stripped him of his enviable place in life. It is only integrity that takes a person up and keeps him there.
Beloved, determine to maintain a solid positive character; character is strength.
Remember this: Character establishes a person on solid ground in life.
1. Determine to exist in positive character.
2. Ask God for the grace to live right always.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to live right so I can be established in stability of impact in life and destiny, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
