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)
I can stand on your Word, Lord, knowing and believing you are my shield and protector. Your Word is truth (John 17:17). Nothing can come against me because you are always for me (Romans 8:31). No sin—no sickness—no issue—no concern has the power to defeat me because you have already defeated it. You uphold me with the truth of your proven and perfect Word.
Your way is flawless, Lord. You guide me into all truth (John 16:13). You reveal who I am in you. In your strength, I can crush an army. In your power, I can scale any wall—overcome any issue that arises (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 a measure of faith to exercise (Romans 12:3). I choose to believe the truth of your Word. I live by that measure of faith and not what I see. When I walk by faith and not by sight, my faith grows stronger (2 Corinthians 5:7). I hope and trust in you. 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 do I live to be satisfied? I want to live as long as I can to 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). I place my faith and hope in you, Lord, because you have raised me from death and given me new life (2 Corinthians 5:17, 1 Peter 1:21). Only you are the source of my hope and fill me completely with joy and peace. I overflow with confident hope through you, Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).
Nothing separates me from your love (Romans 8:35). You never leave me or forsake me (Hebrews 13:5). Joined as one, I am in you, and you are in me (1 Corinthians 6:17, John 17:22-23). You, who died for me, became new life in me (Romans 6:1-4). I have no fear in your perfect love; I am whole and healed in your flawless Grace (1 John 4:18, 1 Peter 2:24). You are the Word (John 1:1), and I believe you.
“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).
Praise you, Jesus! I remember all you have done through these many years. You forgive! You heal! Your mercy overflows! You satisfy me with good things, Lord, so my youth is renewed. I walk by faith and not sight. I trust you.
