Ps 18:30-32 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.
David wrote this Psalm on the day the Lord rescued him from Saul. He sang in gratitude for his deliverance and victory. Until that time, he felt weak and unable to overcome all the deception and evil he experienced at the hand of Saul. Nevertheless, he believed in God and his perfect plan. He believed in, thought about, imagined, addressed, and prayed to God. David’s existence was not about himself but about God. I imagine even with everything David had going for him, he still had questions about his life Just like us, he wondered if he were following the path God had for him. It is okay to ask these questions of God; he will never turn away an honest and sincere heart. Seek out God, even with the “tough” questions and in finding God, you know the One who has all the answers.
Do you want to “make it on your own”? Do you think belief in God is a crutch and shows you as weak? The world wants us to believe depending on others is weakness but God is our strength. God is our shield of protection. He guides us through the fight. The strongest person in this world is infinitely weaker than God.
So many times, in life, I felt weak and unable to rise above the situation but in my weakness, I had faith. To me, faith is going beyond what eyes can see. When I quit looking at the mountain (problem), I was able to see God’s strength. Even today when someone questions me about something in life, my response is “I don’t know but I know when I am weak, God is strong and his plan for me is perfect.
