“As for God, His way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: He is a buckler to all those that trust in Him. For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect” (Psalm 18:30–32).
“As for God, His way is perfect” (text). Since God is perfect, we can be certain His ways are also perfect. He certainly does all things well, never making a mistake.
We don’t always know why God does certain things in certain ways, but we can be assured that a perfect God can make “my way perfect” (text) as well. God’s way is still the best way. “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5,6).
His way is always to be found in and through the Word of God. “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times” (Psalm 12:6). Those who put their trust in the tried and true Word of God will never be disappointed. God cannot lie; what He promises He must perform. He cannot go back on His word. “Thy word is very pure” (Psalm 119:140).
In the text for today we find that God is our sure defense (“buckler”), our sure foundation (“rock”), and our sure power (“strength”)
God’s way is a perfect or completed way. What He starts He finishes. What He begins, He brings to completion.
The same is true in our lives. He will bring to pass all of His promises to their ultimate conclusion. “He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6). He makes our way perfect (complete). “I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day” (II Timothy 1:12). NPS
