The Word of the Almighty God is sure and proven to be true. When He speaks, it will not return to Him void but it will surely accomplish what He desired. He executes His will according to what He has spoken and decreed. He backs up His word with His action, that is why His works are all done in truth. He is the Author and the testimony of “word of honor.”
God is the beginning because He is the Alpha. He is consistent for He remains the same yesterday, today and forever. In Him is the Word for He and His Word are one. His Word is spirit, and it gives Life.
This truth is our guiding principle to live the Word and keep our word as well. Therefore, in times past and even until now, keeping our word holds particular significance. We value personal integrity and honor.
Remember the times past when everyone knew each other’s family in a community and even in a city or municipality? We would not do anything that will tarnish or cast even a shadow of doubt on our family’s good name and reputation. It was a time when integrity and “palabra de honor” or word of honor were instilled in children at a very early age, and were the consideration for one to realize success. Word of Honor, though verbal, is already considered a commitment, and is binding between parties in an agreement.
Every time we give our word, we put our name and honor on the line. It implies that others can trust us. It is a strong message that we are credible and we value our relationship to whomever we give our word. It promotes favorable assumptions that our intentions are honorable. We do not espouse double-mindedness, double standards nor shifting of our moral compass; thus, our reputation is established. If we look internally, our conscience is clear because we know that we have not aggrieved anyone. Our honor is intact which results to having peace of mind and heart.
“My word is my bond” is still applicable to the present time. There may be many changes that happen around us since our world and environment is continuously evolving. Words and opinions may change, but the importance of integrity and word of honor has not. Honor your word and stand up for something; otherwise, you are going to be run over by everything. God is concerned with the quality, quantity, and honorability of our word. How much we value Word of honor matters. As the Lord Jesus Christ has said, “Let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.
We are men and women of honor and integrity. Our word is our bond. As we have promised and committed, with the grace of God we will fulfill them. We are the message of God to our families, colleagues, and communities that integrity and honor are still at work this present time. We are models of the values we speak. Through our life of integrity and honor, all the people around us will also be influenced to do the same; thus, we inspire a people movement of values. We see our families, our agencies and the nation rise in honor and stature.
Almighty God, You uphold the world with your Word. Your Word is our life and the perfect material to build. We surrender our will to Yours and commit to honoring You and Your word through our lives. We thank You for positioning us with your decree that you will honor those who honor You. We see our stature change and increase influence to others so that they will also rise to be the vessels of honor in the nation. Through the message of honoring the Word, our world will never be the same again. Amen.
