God's Perfect Way

2 Sam. 22:31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

One of the most common excuses given by men for rejecting the God of the Bible is their opinion that His ways are unfair. Even Christians are prone to complain at the way God deals with them. But the fact that we may not understand God's ways hardly gives us the right to pass judgment on them. He often reminds us in His Word that His way is perfect and His Word has been tried and proved, again and again.

Psalm 33:4 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.

Psalm 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

We need to settle it in our hearts that, whether we understand them or not, God's ways are always perfect. What He does is right, and whatever He says must be true be definition. His ways are always in the context of eternity, but we leap to judgment in terms of present inconvenience.

His perfect way is seen most fully in Christ, and His truth is heard most clearly in Christ; John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Yet Christ's way was through the cross, and His truth was opposed by the father of lies;

John 8:44-47 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

God's way for us may also lead us into suffering and great opposition, but His way is always perfect and His Word is tried and true. If we trust Him through it all He will be our buckler as He was for David as shared in our opening verse above.

Prov. 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Amen Bro Jim God's way is always true and the best for our life. I have been trying to teach our people that even though we go through suffering we have to learn to praise him for those times. Things are going great at the church though I would let you know that. Keep blessing us from God's Word with what he gives you.
