Making an Honest Living

“…who despises a vile person but honors those who fear the LORD; who keeps an oath even when it hurts, and does not change their mind;” Psalm 15:4

So much of what David writes starts in the heart. It begins with character and asks how we will decide to put our feet into action. The heart guides our life with a mind that has been filled with truth. When the mind is set on doing what is right even to the place it might cost your character, that is when you are in the process of being developed.

The trouble comes when the heart is being tested. We are all put through the fire at times, but it is the roar of the heat that will prove what is in the heart. When the heart is being tested will we be honest? Will we allow ourselves to be true even when it hurts? Will we be true even if it costs us a promotion or a financial gain? 

Remaining true will establish a road of integrity, and others will trust us, realizing that we are not saying one thing and doing another. They will see us as people who follow through with an unwillingness to sway depending on popularity or however it may benefit us.  They will understand we are honest individuals who are unmovable.

The Greatest Attitude
15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. Psalm 31:15
David now proclaims to God that his life is in His hands. This kind of attitude will keep us walking steady without responding negatively to all the evil in the world. This perspective will also keep our heart bent towards God no matter what the cost. David remembers God is in control of not only his life but the very cosmos he is living in.

Many of us struggle through life because of our attitude towards our troubling situations as we grant the circumstances of life permission to guide our attitude. For most, if all threats are gone in life our attitude can remain positive and fortunate. However, the minute we experience an unfortunate occurrence, our attitude can plummet. We have to make daily choices of how we will remain by saying “my times are in your hands.”

It is a matter of choice of how we will or will not be provoked by our troubles. David’s attitude rose above his life-threatening circumstance to realize God is in control. I wonder if he knew deep in his heart, that if the current situation took his life, the battle would be over. God will carry us through all battles of life but only if we allow His involvement. If we choose to dwell on the negative, is there any room for God’s participation in our life? What would happen if we agreed with David and said, “My times are in your hands.”
