As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the Lord is proven;
He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
—Psalm 18:30 (NKJV)
You are the Word, Lord God (John 1:1). Your Word is Truth (John 17:17). You have proved yourself to me. I can stand on your Word knowing it is perfect. You are my shield and protector. Nothing can come against me because you are for me (Romans 8:31). No problem—no sickness—no need has the power to defeat me because you have already defeated it. You empower me with the Truth of your living Word.
Your way is perfect. Your Word is flawless. You guide me into all Truth (John 16:13). You reveal who I am in you. In your strength, I can crush any attacker—scale any wall—overcome any issue (2 Samuel 22:30). You have given me the authority to speak life to every need and death to the enemy who tries to steal the abundant life you have given me (Luke 10:19, Proverbs 18:21, John 10:10).
Without faith, I have no hope (Hebrews 11:1). But you have given me your measure of faith (Romans 12:3). I believe in the Truth of your Word. I live by your faith and not what I see. When I walk by your faith and not by my sight, I hope and trust in you (2 Corinthians 1:7). You protect me. When I call, I know you will answer and rescue me. With long life, you satisfy me and show me your salvation (Psalm 91:14-16). How long can I live to be satisfied? As long as I can help others experience the joy of their faith (Philippians 1:25). Even in old age, I will remain fruitful, vital, and green (Psalm 92:14).
My life is perfect in you—not in this world—but in you. You are my way—my truth—my life (John 14:6). You have overcome my world with your peace (John 16:33). You are the hope of glory in me (Colossians 1:27)—the source of my joy and peace. I overflow with confident hope in you (Romans 15:13).
Nothing separates me from your love (Romans 8:35). You never leave me or forsake me (Hebrews 13:5). You are in me, and I am in you (1 Corinthians 6:17, John 17:22-23). You, who died for me, became new life to live in me (Romans 6:1-4). I have no fear in your perfect love (1 John 4:18). I am whole and healed in your pure Grace (1 John 4:18, 1 Peter 2:24).
“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s” (Psalm 103:2-5 NKJV).
His way is perfect. His Word is life (John 6:63).
