"As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect." 2 Samuel 22:31-33
Everyday we have to make decisions. Some decisions are small, and some are big. A lot of our decisions are in between. My dad always told me that every decision you make is important. Every decision you make will have consequences. The decisions you make today will impact the path you are walking on tomorrow. I don't know that I really understood those words back when I was kid, but I surely understand those words now. I look back on my life and the decisions I have made...some good, some bad. Even today, I am suffering the consequences of decisions I made years ago. I know there is not a lot we can do about the past. It is gone; it cannot be changed. However, if we are drawing air into our lungs today, then it is not too late for us. Today, we can make the right decisions...in the little things, in the big things, and in all the in between things. God's Word is flawless! God's Word is perfect! God's Word is light unto our feet! God's Word is life for us! David wrote a song of praise to God in 2 Samuel 22. His words of praise to God in 22:31-33 are exactly what we need to hear today: "As for God, his way is PERFECT; the word of the Lord is FLAWLESS. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way PERFECT." We need to embrace David's words of praise as our own. If we will read the Word of God and do what it says, then we can know that we are standing on our Rock! We can know that the path we are on is the path that God has prepared for us! We can know that we are making the right decisions because His way is perfect! Believe it! Claim it! Live it!
