SOLID INTEGRITY – A PRESERVER OF GREAT DESTINY
By DIGC14 February 2021
People of great destiny in Scriptures were people of great character.
SCRIPTURE: My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live. Job 27:6.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: People of great destiny in Scriptures were people of great character.
It has been confirmed that integrity is a facilitator or preserver of destiny. People of great destiny in Scriptures were people of great character. The strength of destiny is directly proportional to the strength of character.
Now, I will give you few examples of men of solid integrity who had great destiny:
Joseph was a man of character who ended as a man with strong destiny.
In Genesis 39:5, Potiphar kept everything he had under the care of Joseph and nothing missed.
In Genesis 39:9, Joseph vowed not to commit immorality with his master’s wife when he was tempted by her. He told Potiphar’s wife, “…how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?”(Gen. 39:9b).
Genesis 39:22 reveals that in the prison, everything was still kept in the hand of Joseph, including the prisoners, yet nothing missed.
Joseph feared God because he was a man of integrity (Genesis 42:18). He was a man of great character, so he ended up as a man of great destiny.
In Job 1:1, we saw that Job was a man who feared God and eschewed evil. He was perfect and upright.
In Job 27:3-6, He said, “… My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit. God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me. My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.”
This was the secret behind the solid destiny of Job.
Beloved, make up your mind to maintain a solid integrity in order to fulfil your destiny.
Remember this: People of great destiny in Scripture were people of great character.
- Make up your mind to maintain solid integrity like Joseph and Job.
- Refuse to compromise with the people of the world.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to stand upright always. Help me Lord not to compromise with sin and sinners, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: Lions have an inter-digital scent gland between their toes, which is one reason why they like to scratch trees. Not only are they sharpening and cleaning their claws, they are also marking their territory.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: As you embrace quality integrity into the destiny of dignity, proceed into the destiny of dignity in Jesus’ Name.
