Psalm 18:30 (NKJV) As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried.
God’s people, throughout the generations, have cast their lives into the strength of God’s Word. They have married, invested, raised children, decided careers, and set their ambitions according to the Word of God. They have discovered in the Bible their comfort in times of loss, their direction in times of change, and their joy in times of prosperity. How are you doing reading God’s Word?
God’s Word has been tried, tested, scrutinized, and relied upon by Christians throughout the ages. And, just as David testified in today’s reading, they have found it more than sufficient for their every need. They have discovered, in every generation and in every imaginable circumstance, that God’s Word truly is perfect.
The Lord’s counsel is always wise, God’s history is always accurate, the Lord’s lessons are always true, and the Lord’s commands are always relevant. God’s way is undeniably perfect.
Point to ponder- Please note King David was not merely making an observation or teaching an academic lesson; David’s point is that because God’s Word has been tried and tested by millions of saints through the centuries, and has been found perfect, each of us should therefore build our lives on this tried and sure foundation. Are you building your life in God? The Word of the Lord is tried, it is proven, it is sure — but have you tried it?
