I don’t know if you got to read from the blog, part four of the 5 vital signs teaching I done, In fact it is the most viewed article, on the blog so far.

This subject is probably one of the most important subjects, that we need to practice in our lives, but very few people take it seriously and do it faithfully. I encourage you to read this article strongly, if we are truly going to see the abundance that God wants us to have and for the Word of God to move, we must practice, this principle, faithfully and from our hearts recognizing that this is God hearts for us.

God wants us to have integrity which is having moral principles which we live by and by doing these principles we won’t break them, because it is a part of us. Having integrity is an issue of the heart (mind set) the world has it wisdom and ways of doing things, but Gods ways is higher, lets practice this principle (read article link below) from our hearts on a consistence bases, and let us prove God. Even more the so If you are living on needs bases. Let’s be people of integrity. here is the meaning of integrity

integrity appears in the Kings James version of the bible 16 times, we will take a look at three or four verse and I will give the references where the other records are.

Psalm 25:21

King James Version (KJV)

21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.

Psalm 26:11

King James Version (KJV)

11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

Psalm 41:12

King James Version (KJV)

12 And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.

Psalm 78:72

King James Version (KJV)

72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.

Proverbs 20:7

King James Version (KJV)

The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.

The Herbrews word in these Verses is tôm  From H8552; completeness; figuratively prosperity; usually (morally) innocence: – full, integrity, perfect (-ion), simplicity, upright (-ly, -ness), at a venture. See H8550.

Here are the 16 verses not all have the same Hebrew word. The scriptures are

Genesis 20:5-6, 1 Kings 9:4, Job 2:3,9 Job 27:5, Job 31:6, Psalms 7:8, Psalms 25:21, Psalms 26:1,11 Psalms 41:12, Psalms78:72, Proverbs 11:3, Proverbs 19:1, Proverbs20:7,

A person is considered to “have integrity” when they are true to their values, beliefs, and principles they claim to hold.  In other words, a person with integrity sticks to what they believe in no matter what.  they also show forth honesty, truthfulness, honor, reliability, and uprightness all come in to play when interpreting the word integrity.

Within the context from these scriptures, God promises to bless and honour protect and restore the ones that uphold and walk in their Integrity, Having integrity means we  stay true to what we believe, It means we are decisive, we base our decision on what we truly believe and the values we hold and live by.

Practicing this principle which my article covers will take you to living a life which is more abundant and fruitful. after reading this article,( link below) I encourage you to sit down with God and ask God what He wants you to do, make up your mind with the Father that you will do what He is showing you from His Word if you are not doing it and become a person of integrity being faithful in doing it, and watch God go to work for you on your behalf. God shows us not only to do this thing but more importantly where to do it, and why and our the heart we should do it. Enjoy reading this article, and lets us do the things of God from the heart unto God, not men much love Laurence….

Article link below . ps one of the reasons why some fail to see the great benefits of this principle from God word, is because they stop to doing it or are not consistance.

much love

Laurence

One thought on “Importance of Integrity – Values of the heart – By Laurence Torr

  1. Hi Laur
    God bless you abundantly in grace and peace of Jesus Christ our Lord
    I just read your teaching about “Importance of Integrity” My heart was burning to know more about it.
    The integrity was translated in Finnish as “nuhteeton” which means be without blame or blameless. But this translation goes under the law. But God showed me through your teaching it is the state of heart. To be pure heart. To do the things form the heart.
    You teachings blessed me and I took one step closer to truth
    Love you Laur!!!!
