January 13, 2020 Rick Warren Devotional :- Fight the Devil with Integrity
“So stand ready, with truth as a belt tight around your waist, with righteousness as your breastplate” (Ephesians 6:14 GNT).
Maintaining integrity doesn’t mean you’re perfect, but it does mean you’re authentic. You don’t wear masks: “What you see is what you get.”
The word “integrity” comes from the word “integer,” which means a unit of one. In other words, you don’t slice and dice your life like pieces of a pie. Integrity means all parts of your life are integrated together. You act the same no matter where you go. You let truth rule in every area of your life.
Unfortunately, Satan doesn’t have to work hard against some believers, because their lack of integrity makes them pushovers for his temptations. They don’t have the belt of truth wrapped around them, so they become easy prey.
God wants you wrapped in the truth. Confess your sins to him, and he will be quick to forgive you. Ask him to strengthen your ability to live transparently before others and then watch how he transforms your relationships.
