2 Samuel 22:31-As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
Let’s just break this verse down a little bit. First of all, it’s talking about God, in fact it’s describing God. Secondly, it says His way is perfect. It’s not a flawed plan, it’s not a failed plan, it’s a perfect plan. The way God chooses to do things is always perfect. If you agree with His plan, which is perfect, and stop speaking doubt and unbelief over His plan, it’s gonna work out just fine.
Thirdly, The word of the Lord is proven. From the beginning, He spoke and it happened. There is nothing God said that didn’t come to pass. NOTHING! Go through the scriptures, God created the heavens and the earth, He separated light from darkness, He made man in His own image. He said Abraham would have a son and he did. He said He would deliver the children of Israel and He did. He said He would send His son and He did. His word is proven.
Lastly, He is a shield to all who trust in Him. Ah, there is a fascinating concept; trust in Him. Let me just explain that you simply cannot trust someone you don’t know. Do you know God? Is your relationship with Him more than just a cry out when trouble comes? When you need something? When you’re in a tight spot? Do you really, really know Him? Are you hungry for time with Him? Do you get excited for the chance to sit with Him, talk with Him and share your heart with Him? Do you understand the depths of His love for you? Do you speak of Him to others with passion in your voice? Do you?
The greater the trust, the deeper the intimacy. God shares deep things with those who trust Him deeply. He is a shield to all who trust Him. Wouldn’t you love to be shielded from bad things? Wouldn’t you love to be shielded from sickness and disease? Wouldn’t you love to have the assurance that you’d never be lacking anything? Psalm 84:11 says; For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.
Oh Father, it’s not even Your nature to withhold from me. You are so giving. I trust Your plans because I know my steps are ordered by You. I trust Your Word because it is alive, active and powerful and everything You said in the past has come to pass so I know that every promise spoken over me will also come to pass as well. I trust You, Lord. I trust You with my body, with my husband, with my children and grandchildren, with my finances and my future. You have no intention of leaving me ever, because you said; “ I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down ([relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]” Hebrews 13:5b AMP. I trust you when things don’t go as I’ve planned because You obviously have a better plan. It’s in Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen
