I am pure, without transgression; I am innocent, and there is no impurity in me. (Job 33:9)
Job’s friends lined up to deride him. Each took a lengthy turn to spew their judgments. Yet, Job would not be moved from his integrity. Job, in essence, said, “Even though the evidence appears that there is guilt in me, I am innocent. I have not wronged my God.” When you are right and there is no doubt in your heart and mind of your stand, stand. Never allow the naysayers of life to steal your integrity nor your dreams. Remember Job. Hold on to your integrity. Stand firm in your beliefs. If you find yourself beginning to weaken under the onslaught of dream stealers remind yourself of your integrity and vision. No one came to Job’s defense, no one. The only defender he had was the Lord God, and He kept silent until His time. Therefore, you and I will be tested. There will be good people with good intentions attempting to derail you. When it happens, remember the integrity of Job.
