His Way Is Perfect

"As for God, His way is perfect; 
The Lord's word is flawless; 
He shields all who take refuge in Him."  
~ Psalm 18:30

This was my verse for the day yesterday.  I spoke it, sang it and camped on it.  There is so  much in this scripture that spoke to me, but I would like to ponder the words, "As for God, His way is Perfect!"

One of my favorite verses is Isaiah 48:17 "This is what the Lord says, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; 'I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.'"  My prayer partners hear me pray this regularly, that God would lead and do what is BEST for the situation/person at hand.  But today I was pondering Psalms 18 and the words "As for God, His way is Perfect".  I was dealing with a circumstance and lots of variables involved that needed the perfection of God released into it.  I found such comfort in knowing that God - the creator and Lord of all, has a way that is PERFECT.  It's not just good or okay, but it's PERFECT. And as his daughter, I can ask for that way that is Perfect . . .

"He is the Rock, His works are Perfect, and all His ways are just.  A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is He." ~ Deuteronomy 32:4

This gives me great comfort as I pray into paths that lie ahead, that there is a perfect way that God wants to reveal and lead His kids into.  I pray today for those who read this blog that your mind would be transformed and you would be able to to know and walk in God's way that is PERFECT.

"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - His good, pleasing and PERFECT will."  
~ Romans 12:2
