Our character determines how we identify the Lord.
To the faithful you show yourself faithful;Psalm 18:25
People demonstrate faithfulness because they value it for it comes at a cost. It requires commitment when others would have given up. So, it is the faithful who will hang on long enough to see God come through in faithfulness.
to those with integrity you show integrity.Psalm 18:25
Few people believe others have integrity. They look at their own spin and assume everyone else spins with them. So, when Jesus says “I am with you always.” They give a knowing wink. They are not going to stick their necks out on the basis of anyones word.
It is those who live out what they believe in integrity who will stick with Jesus enough to prove his words true.
To the pure you show yourself pure, but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.Psalm 18:26
Shifting from the light to darkness there is a change. The Lord demonstrates he is no fool. The crooked lure the innocent into their traps. Yet, the Lord has a way of trapping the crooked in their own traps showing himself to be shrewd. Sadly, few see it. Most believe that they had failed to cover all eventualities. It takes a remarkable person to see that it was the Lord who was behind their failure.
