--48 of 52--

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. (Psalm 18:30)

This verse holds three special thoughts.
1) God’s way is perfect
This means what it says. When God allows trials in our life – His way is perfect. When God allows joy and happiness – His way is perfect. When God allows ungodly men to rise in authority – His way is perfect! When God sends rain or drought – His way is perfect! What God allows – is perfect!

2) God’s Word is tried
Tried: refined. We can trust God’s Word as the final authority. We do not have to “explain it away,” we just have to accept it and trust in what It says.

3) God is a buckler for those who trust Him
Buckler: shield. I can trust in God because HE is worthy to be trusted. He will protect me – totally shield me – like no one else can.

Such precious truths all encased in one simple verse!!!

How has your verse spoken to you this week?
