April 6, 2017 – Psalm 18:2-3

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and he saved me from my enemies. Psalm 18:2-3

How great is our Lord God! His Name is above all names.  There is no other as Great as our Lord Jehovah.  He loves like no other. Everywhere we look, we see evidence of our Almighty God. We see his power and majesty, we know our abilities are gifts from Him to use for Him.  Humility and faithful love and praise can be our only response.

This is God’s World and we are His people. His way is perfect.  Following Him makes our days perfect.  Have you ever wondered what is perfect?  We use the word for a perfect game, a perfect birthday party, or a perfect vacation.  Jesus said, Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Matthew 5:48) 

What kind of perfect is Jesus talking about?  God has given us Jesus, and Jesus loves us so much, He died to make us perfect, with sins forgiven. That is perfection!  Living each with forgiven sin is God’s way.  Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.  John 14:6. 

Trusting God as our shield and protection against evil and through Jesus Christ is God’s way. When we follow Him, He arms us with strength to be His.  God is our faithful rock!

God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. For who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is a solid rock? God arms me with strength, and he makes my way perfect. Psalm 12:30-32
