As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the LORD is proven;
He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
It is wonderful to know we have God as a shield in this life we live, protecting us from the evil and the works of darkness in this world. How do we get this protection? We must put our complete trust in Him. What does it mean to completely trust in our God? He tells us in the first part of the verse.
As for God, His way is perfect for the Word of the Lord is proven. Think about that for a minute. God’s ways are perfect. That word perfect means complete, lacking nothing. Man’s ways are not perfect. If we choose to do life our own way, we are headed down an imperfect path, and this will give satan opportunity to take advantage of our life. How do we find out about His perfect ways? From His Word.
In Luke 6:46-49, Jesus said if you come to Him and hear His sayings and don’t do them you are building on sand. When storms come you will go down. But if you do what He says, when storms come not only will you stand, you won’t be shaken. So many believers say they trust in God, but still do their own thing. God’s ways are perfect. When we choose to stop living life our own way and do what Jesus said, we are trusting in Him, and He will shield us from the storms.
